      This is disgusting, criminal behavior. I hope the assailants get caught and the book gets thrown at them.

      Truly sick and disgusting, and it will be as well if it's not discussed and analyzed at length for days on the mainstream network news.  If not, it will be even more sick and disgusting.

    I hope they catch the idiot criminals who did it and lock them up for a long time. The protesters seemed pretty well behaved although a couple of the signs didn't help their cause.

      They can probably find them at the ACORN office or the closest DNC headquarters.

        That's a dumb comment.

          As always, someone else said it far more succinctly than I could ever hope to.

        With all due respect, Padrino, I've just got to say it seems to me that such sweeping generalizations and accusations without evidence are part of the kind of thinking that result in this sort of behavior.

          I know it is but I just wanted to be like all the libs who do the same thing.

    yes, what we say and in our signs matters.  I am striving for waking up to the need for unity and common ground, not opposition, agitation or violence... that is what i look to in learning more about the Constitution and what our Republic is suppose to look like, and in how people act toward each other.

    *sigh* Why does everything have to be a label? Why "us" and "them"? When are people going to get the simple fact that we're PEOPLE? Violent, loving, smart, stupid, big, small, liberal, conservative....flawed...people.

    These sorts of things come out of the human condition...not the labels people place on one another. If it hadn't been "Palin buttons" it would be something else.

    *sigh* Never mind. It's just a waste of time. And I've got other things to do.

    I don't think you will find many liberals who defend this kind of thuggery. I don't.

      You won't find many talking about it either.

        Well, if it didn't get posted on Youtube - it didn't reall happen, right?

      Just go to the SEIU and you'll find thugs to defend any kind of thuggery if it suits them.

    I'm so glad to see street-thugs taking such an active interest in politics.

    There are some serious idiots on the extreme right looking for an excuse I hope this doesn't start a pattern of behavior.

      That's either a very sick comment, or I've completely misunderstood you - I hope the latter.
