Check out this story:
Bob Novak, the pugnacious conservative pundit, may have to answer an assault charge in Manchester, N.H., stemming from an altercation with an activist on primary night last month. The dust-up ensued after Brad Carr, 54, who calls himself “an independent citizen” who’s against the Bush administration, taunted Novak, 72, a host of CNN’s “Crossfire,” which was broadcasting live from a restaurant.
“I called him a traitor because of his involvement in the outing of Valerie Plame, which I think is unconscionable,” Carr told us yesterday, recounting the Jan. 27 incident, which he reported to police. “He gave me a dirty look and ignored me, so I followed him outside to a CNN bus [where] I called him a traitor, probably for the fifth or sixth time. . . . He turned around and grabbed me by the arm . . . gave me a little shove, cocked his arm back as though he was going to hit me, and then someone from behind dragged him away to the bus.”
Carr, a stocky fellow, slipped on the ice into the arms of self-described progressive activist Mike Stinson, who told us, “I have a back problem — I don’t need to be catching big men.” Details were posted on the Web site takebackthemedia.com, with these headlines next to Novak’s scowling mug: “Why is This Man So Angry? Bob Novak assaults man in New Hampshire!! Contact CNN and tell them you don’t like it!”
The name Mike Stinson should sound familiar, and you should not have to google it. In case you don’t remember, here is who Mike Stinson is:
One of the finalists of the MoveOn.org ad contest is responsible for another heinous web video that compares Bush to Hitler, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
An ad by “Take Back the Media” is one of 15 Finalists in MoveOn.org’s Bush in 30 Seconds Commercial Contest. Produced by Michael Stinson [SYMBOLMAN], The ARMY OF ONE flash animation has been chosen out of over 1000 submission by nearly 3 million votes online.
But currently streaming on the Take Back site with ARMY OF ONE is another shocking advert produced by Michael Stinson [SYMBOLMAN] — alleging Bush/Nazi ties!
I wish you had punched them both, Novak.
This is going to be the most vicious, bitter, and bile filled election in history. These lunatics need to be locked up.
