    This Will Work As Well As Aqua Buddha

    This Will Work As Well As Aqua Buddha

    The left-blogosphere and punditry have been hoping for right-wing political violence for two years now with no success. 

    From Bill Sparkman to countless others, these people have been waiting for the fire to justify all the smoke they have been blowing about “extremist” and “crazy” and “violent” and “un-American” Tea Partiers and conservatives.

    Memeorandum is overflowing right now with overblown accounts of what amounted to a brief scuffle when a professional provocateur on the payroll of attempted as a publicity stunt to “present” Rand Paul with a phony “award” as Paul exited his car to enter the debate forum in Paducah, Ky.

    The people around Paul had no way of knowing that this person intended only to present an “award.”  Some of their actions may have been unwarranted and possibly criminal, such as the person who pushed her down with his foot, but make no mistake about it, this was a deliberate provocation intended to create a scene. 

    We can at the same time condemn criminal conduct and call this incident for the provocation that it was; the two are not mutually exclusive.

    In this highly charged political atmosphere — Jack Conway supporters had surrounded Paul shouting “we want Jack” as Paul exited his car and Paul’s security was attempting to hold back the crowd — the usual sophomoric publicity stunts such as pie throwing create a risk of violence.

    While the left-blogosphere is sucking on this incident like a crack addict who has gone days without a fix, the reality is that most Americans will recognize this for what it was and is:  A provocation by an organization known for provocation intended to create a publicity stunt to be used to distract the public from the abject failure of the Democrats who are standing for election.

    This publicity stunt gone bad will work about as well as Jack Conway’s Aqua Buddha strategy, which has allowed Rand Paul to pull away in the polls.

    Keep it up.  Your disconnect grows larger every day.

    Update:  As I suspected, provocateur was not so innocent.  In an amazing videotape obtained by Redstate, she is shown rushing Paul’s car and shoving something into the window before it had come to a stop and again charging him as he exited the vehicle — a clearly provocative action which should have alerted bystanders that she posed a danger.  This completely debunks the foaming at the mouth narrative that this was anything other than a deliberate provocation (which does not excuse the foot to the shoulders after the fact, but does explain why she was pulled away by Paul supporters).

    Oh, and by the way, have to ask, where was the left's outrage when that protester bit off the finger of that retired vet last year? I notice the MSM ignored that, despite the fact that it was reported in the local news.

    Also, quite frankly, if even a woman had approached Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi or anyone else's vehicle, and attempted to shove a placard through the window, she would have gotten a lot more than merely being brought to the ground and having a foot placed on her shoulder to keep here there. She would have been tased at the very least.

    @ceolas: I realize it's popular to say the MSM didn't report on that (universally reported as dual-reponsibility) fistfight but Google 'finger bitten off protest' and you'll find stories by FoxNews, CBS, MSNBC, NY Daily News, WaPo, and others whose Sep. 3rd stories predate the Sep. 4th blogs whining about the lack of coverage. There's no excuse for intellectual laziness. Whatever your ideology, you shouldn't need a martyr complex to practice it.

    Also even if there were a strategic coverage gap, equating a mutual situation to one which is demonstrably not is intellectually bankrupt.

    Anyone who say there was an item shoved in the car has the burden of proof- WHERE IS IT?
