Childish Antics In Politics

When the opposite side resorts to hair-pulling to get demonstrators away from a rally, you have to wonder about their maturity and if they have brains.


Anti-Bush Demonstrator Gets Hair Pulled Posted by Hello Source: AP

On a political note, if you live in the 27th Congressional District and you're a Democrat, don't forget to get out to vote in the Congressional Primary on Tuesday, September 14th. Polls are open from 6am to 9pm in Erie County and 12 noon to 9pm in Chautauqua County. Anyone see the inequality in that? Damn the Republican Election Commissioner who refused to acknowledge that and send a bill to our Republican State representative to have the Chautauqua County hours made equal to Erie.

Yeah, but look at that head of unmanageable hair! I bet he was just giving her some pointers on what to do when you have a bad hair day. Or he was going to French braid it...you're choice :)

A white-haired old man resorting to hair-pulling like an 8 year old girl in a schoolyard cat-fight. Absolutely ridiculous it is, the extent to which politics have polarized us. You'd think that we could all remember that we're Americans and that we should all just get along, but not so. We're Democrat and Republican, liberal and conservative. It seems as though we hate each other as much as all the kooks who want us dead do. Sometimes I just hate the whole thing. But usually I remember that I hate Bush/Cheney more! :op

Hmmm....does anyone else think that guy looks a lot like Dick Cheney?

If you look close you'll see his mouth is open similar to hers. Who is pulling his hair? Hey maybe those Chautauqua County people just like to sleep in!They are probably planning a big party the night before and need that extra time to deal with the hangovers! Isn't the Chautauqua County hair pulling festival - beer bash the night before?

Looks like an altered photograph. I'm not even a Republican or Democratic Party Member. Where is this even from? You should at least site your sources on your own page.

Oh yee of little faith... post updated to include source *rolls eyes* And this also appeared on the special photo page of Saturday's Buffalo News.

OK, if you want answers:

http://www.nytimes.com/2004/09/10/politics/campaign/10bush.html

That article in the New York Times publishes the AP Photo of the girl, whose name is Jennifer Cohn, getting her hair pulled. It's an authentic photo.

*sticks out tongue* :)

Oh crap. Julia, guess I didn't read far enough down on the comments. Anyway, now you have 2 sources. :)

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clift...
