Nobody Pepper-Sprayed The Dade County Rent-a-Mob
'Member that one? Where this mob of people, a lot of 'em from D.C. it turned out, stopped the vote recount in Florida's 2000 Presidential election. The count stopped as I recall, and that cranked up the amps on the "we have no President" fear being shoveled by nearly all the ordinary media of the era. And that fear brought in the cavalry, in the form of the Supreme Court.
I might also wonder just where all the batons and canisters were when rallies sporting weapon-carrying citizens were blossoming during the big panic over the death-paneled government health care thing.
Well, Happy Thanksgiving, y'all.
