Attempted Vehicular Homocide as "Political Speech"

"A Florida man has been charged with attempting to run over controversial Republican congresswoman Katherine Harris with his Cadillac.

"According to the below Sarasota Police Department report, Barry Seltzer, 46, told cops that he was simply exercising his 'political expression' when he drove his car at Harris and several supporters, who were campaigning last night at a Sarasota intersection.

"Seltzer - pictured at right in a booking photo - allegedly drove up on a sidewalk and headed directly for Harris before swerving 'at the last minute.' Harris told officers that 'she was afraid for her life and could not move as the vehicle approached her,' according to the report. For his part, Seltzer - who's a registered Democrat - told cops, 'I intimidated them with the car. They were standing in the street.' He added, 'I did not run them down, I scared them a little!'

"That explanation did not stop investigators from arresting Seltzer for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a felony. Harris, Florida's former secretary of state, is best known for her role in te aftermath of the state's disastrous 2000 presidential election." [my emphasis]

What's it going to take to finally generate a full-blown public backlash against the Demofascist party? The driver not swerving next time? Or will that just be the beginning of the next phase of left-wing "activism"?

Understand this, gentles, and understand it well: if you elect John Kerry, this is the kind of evil you will be rewarding and encouraging.

On both sides.
