In a burst of violence the likes of which this planet has not seen ANYWHERE since at least the Kenneth Gladney/Union Thugs Incident, a Thug working with the Martha Coakley senatorial campaign MAULED Weekly Standard writer John McCormack in cold blood last night in Washington D.C. Why was Martha Coakley in Washington D.C. last night, less than a week before her extremely vital and surprisingly close Massachusetts special election? Probably something to do with her WORST CAMPAIGN EVER tactical losing strategy.
After Coakley finished her answer, she began walking away from the restaurant, and I walked behind her asking why health care industry lobbyists were supporting her at the fundraiser. She didn’t reply.
As I walked down the street, a man who appeared to be associated with the Coakley campaign pushed me into a freestanding metal railing. I ended up on the sidewalk. I was fine. He helped me up from the ground, but kept pushing up against me, blocking my path toward Coakley down the street.
He asked if I was with the media, and I told him I work for THE WEEKLY STANDARD. When I asked him who he worked for he replied, “I work for me.” He demanded to see my credentials, and even though it was a public street, I showed them to him.
I eventually got around him and met up with the attorney general halfway down the block.
The fundraiser was at faux-good Capitol Hill establishment Sonoma, for those of you keeping score, whatever that means. They pride themselves on having lotsa wine!
Too bad it wasn’t Kristol, Goldfarb, or that creepy Sarah Palin stalker kid.
Maybe Obama should campaign for this Coakley, what with his entire agenda on the line and all.
