The Democratic Underground Thread Of The Day: It’s Ok To Run Over Her With Your Car, She’s Just A Republican
As most of you have probably heard some lunatic nearly ran down Katherine Harris and some of her supporters with his car and then called it “political expression”. Here are some of the details…
“Witnesses told police a silver Cadillac sped through an intersection and hurtled onto a sidewalk, heading straight toward Harris before swerving at the last minute and driving off.
The Republican congresswoman told police she froze with fear as the vehicle sped toward her Tuesday evening, authorities said.
Witnesses gave the car’s license plate number to police, and they tracked it to Barry M. Seltzer (search), 46, of Sarasota, a registered Democrat. He came to the police station Wednesday and complained to officers that Harris’ supporters had been standing in the street impeding traffic.
“I intimidated them with my car,” Seltzer told police. “I was exercising my political expression. I did not run them down. I scared them a little.”
The police are charging this guy with aggravated assault and with good reason. He’s obviously a violent nutjob who belongs in prison….right? WRONG! At least according to plenty of people at the Democratic Underground. Apparently they have no problem with kooks almost mowing down women…well, as long as they’re Republicans…
From a thread called Man Accused of Trying to Run Down Katherine Harris…
skypilot: “I hope he had a big maniacal smile on his face. Imagine it from Katherine’s point of view. Everyone around you scattering and a big siver Caddy hurling towards you with a broadly smiling driver behind the wheel. I’ll have that image in my head all day.”
slor: “I hope he voted already. No point in losing that vote due to poorly planned heroic behavior!”
mitchum: “The car would have needed the Super Deluxe Wash. considering all of the makeup. Better luck next time.”
From a thread called “Man arrested for assault of Harris (Kathleen) /Florida“…
HawkeyeX: “Hell, someone give that man the Congressional Medal of Honor for assaulting the woman who is single-handling responsible for the entire destruction of the United States for the last four years. Hell, he should be hailed as a hero. (While we’re at it, throw a Purple Heart for having to touch the slime of a woman) Instead, let that woman rot in jail for 100 million years.”
Generic Other: “Let’s BAIL the guy out! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!”
Artemis Bunyon: “He should have floored it. And he shouldn’t have swerved.”
The_Casual_Observer: “I feel sorry for the guy. Harris certainly isn’t worth the trouble he has caused himself. The all around low value of people like harris normally keeps them safe and guarantees a long life.”
henslee: “He can’t get off with comm. service. Running her down is comm. service”
