Carl Levin Hit By Muslin Pie

by Jack Stuef

Nice try ANSWERING YOUR CONSTITUENTS' QUESTIONS, Levin.Sen. Carl Levin was holding a question-and-answer session in Big Rapids, Michigan today when an anti-war protester hit him with a pie. We’ve been scouring the Internet for a photo of this funny turning point in the history of American aggression, but the best we could come up with is this accurate Blingee re-enactment.

The Big Rapids Pioneer newspaper reported the woman’s name as Ahlam Mohsen, a 23-year-old senior at Michigan State University; and her friend who instigated the incident with Levin as Max Kantar, 23. MSU lists Mohsen as a student, but it’s unknown what school Kantar attends.

These crazy kids must have been fans of What Would You Do? growing up.

More importantly, “Ahalam Mohsen” SOUNDS MUSLIN. Michigan is a state that lets Muslins build LOTS OF MOSQUES mere BLOCKS away from where Americans’ precious pets live, and lets Muslins walk freely amongst other Americans. This is what happens when our lax federal laws allow people with Muslin-sounding names to buy pies. [Detroit News]

Excellent use of the Justin Bieber image in the Blingee. Justin may just be the 21st century’s answer to Les Paul.

Mmmm, pie.

Accordion-o-rama August 16, 2010 at 4:53 pm

Pecan-rhubarb is great!

Lionel Hutz Esq. August 16, 2010 at 4:57 pm

From now on, we must not allow Muslims to build Mosques within five blocks of our pie factories! Who will think of the children!

Lionel Hutz Esq. August 16, 2010 at 4:58 pm

And which war was he protesting? Michele Obama’s War on Obesity?

The Purple Pie Man is being held for questioning at Guantanamo.

I’m glad pieing is catching on in American political discourse. It’s so much more civilized than teabagging.

8/13 Never Forget

bobwurst August 16, 2010 at 5:01 pm

It better not a bin a apple pie gosh darn it. Next, they’ll be throwing baseballs, moms, and chevys.

Come here a minute August 16, 2010 at 5:01 pm

Mmmm…muslin pie.

That’ll make him feel bad about the war! Good job, pie-throwing anti-war protesters.

Carl Levin Hit by Muslin Pie I thought this had to do with Paula Abdul. Never mind.

Prommie August 16, 2010 at 5:03 pm

Man, I am just not fucking interested in Amurrika’s fuck-upedness today, it is not making me laugh. The vastness of the stupid, every fucking where, is getting tiresome, ponderous, man, fucking ponderous.

Canmon (the Inadequate) August 16, 2010 at 5:06 pm

A real American would have used apple pie.

TheCoolestGuyInTown August 16, 2010 at 5:06 pm

Tea Bags are going to have trouble processing this story. Is it awesome because a Democrat got pied? Or is it an outrage because this girl was Muslim?

DustBowlBlues August 16, 2010 at 5:08 pm

At what point does the political scene in this country become so completely, over the top wacky that “our” wonkette is the only safe place for reasonable people to have civilized discourse? Or when the headlines from newspapers are indistinguishable from the onion?

Was the pie lady wearing a pink tee shirt, by any chance?

Hooray For Anything August 16, 2010 at 5:08 pm

[re=639703]Come here a minute[/re]: Yeah, way to take aim at somebody whose sort of on your side and not somebody whose definitely NOT on your side. And way to make all those crazy Tea Partiers from last year seem polite and civilized.

mumblyjoe August 16, 2010 at 5:08 pm

[re=639701]mumblyjoe[/re]: Also, I’m apparently living 3 days in the past.

So, forget. Forget immediately.

SayItWithWookies August 16, 2010 at 5:19 pm

I can’t wait for the first person to have the requisite security freakout and start spouting that if this pie had been a bomb a lot of people could’ve been killed, so why wasn’t it detected? Then it could’ve been weaponized and used to spread anthrax. Then we go before the UN with a resolution to invade Dearborn.

[re=639706]Prommie[/re]: It may be fucking ponderous, but it’s still not as bad as coming out of an upbeat song and having to do a goddamn dead dog dedication.

bago August 16, 2010 at 5:19 pm

[re=639714]mumblyjoe[/re]: Drink more. You’ll forget faster.

facehead August 16, 2010 at 5:20 pm

[re=639706]Prommie[/re]: What you need is to analyze the vastness of the stupid, break it down into easily digestible parts, y’know, using a pie chart.


jus_wonderin August 16, 2010 at 5:21 pm

Wouldn’t it be funny if she had hit him in the face with…


Okay, maybe not.

el_burrito August 16, 2010 at 5:28 pm

[re=639728]jus_wonderin[/re]: That makes me head hertz

TheCoolestGuyInTown August 16, 2010 at 5:30 pm

If someone pies Sarah Palin and gets a picture of it… I’m buying drinks for everyone!!!

Or should they throw their shoes? As much as I abhor seeing women get hurt, seeing her get a shoe in the face would be very satisfying.

Let’s not go there- the man who has been arrested for stabbing black and hispanic men in Michigan and Virginia is a CHRISTIAN(but he has an ARAB name so we should just call him Muslin)

user-of-owls August 16, 2010 at 5:43 pm

[re=639686]bfstevie[/re]: No, it’s more likely Justin is the 21st century embodiment of the 10th century 12th Imam

bfstevie August 16, 2010 at 5:50 pm

[re=639760]user-of-owls[/re]: You may be right. But tell me this: Is Justin shocked by the gratuitous violence of the waste of perfectly good pie?

user-of-owls August 16, 2010 at 5:51 pm

[re=639686]bfstevie[/re]: Ye of little faith. Any true believer knows that Justin Bieber is of the 10th century 12th Imam.

The Greatest American hero August 16, 2010 at 6:01 pm

At least it was a fruit pie.

hoosiermama August 16, 2010 at 6:11 pm

The Biotic Baking Brigade strikes again!!!! Yum!

zhubajie August 16, 2010 at 6:15 pm

Every member of Congress should be pied! Pelted with shoes, dung, etc., as well.

Lionel Hutz Esq. August 16, 2010 at 6:25 pm

[re=639701]mumblyjoe[/re]: Today, we are all pie covered Senators.

whtehouseaim August 16, 2010 at 6:50 pm

“Oh God, it chafes! IT CHAFES!”

Muslin pies are the worst sort of pies to be hit with. In the name of civility, please, I appeal to my countrymen to use polyester pies.

Trubbaman August 16, 2010 at 7:06 pm

The sad thing is that, relatively speaking, Carl Levin is one of the good guys. I have a long list of other pols that should get pied before him.

DustBowlBlues August 16, 2010 at 7:10 pm

[re=639712]DustBowlBlues[/re]: Oops. I forgot she had a muslin name. In that case, was her burqua (of course I don’t know how to spell it. I’m a Methodist and an Amurikan in the Heartland) pink?

Mad Brahms August 16, 2010 at 7:24 pm

[re=639712]DustBowlBlues[/re]: It’s “The Daily Show Effect”, in which the only places safe for actual news and debate are the ones dedicated to making fun of it.

Jukesgrrl August 16, 2010 at 7:27 pm

Michigan State University is too close to Ground Zero and it should be moved.

Bearbloke August 16, 2010 at 7:32 pm

[re=639703]Come here a minute[/re]: I prefer flannel cakes, myself…

If this were in the yoopie, it would have been a lemon meringue pie with a 12 inch meringue, with a consequent increase in the splattery humor.

Also, “Max Kantor” sound suspiciously — non-Arab, amirite? Also, too, an anagram for “Roman Tax, k?”, which clearly means for us to render unto Caesar those pies which are Caesar’s.

Smoke Filled Roommate August 17, 2010 at 5:48 am

I remember when Mann Coulter fled a pie with her strange limbs aflutter..

GOPCrusher August 17, 2010 at 12:20 pm

“But at the end of a great meeting this morning, two young people took advantage of the gathering to read a long statement accusing senators of war crimes”

I hate to tell you Ahlam and Max, but you wasted your pie on the wrong person.

E.A.Blair August 20, 2010 at 11:06 am

I personally don’t know any practicing muslins, but I’ve been known to wear it from time to time.
