What a maroon:
A 21-year-old Yale student, posing as a volunteer at the Republican National Convention, got within 10 feet of Vice President Dick Cheney and shouted anti-war statements before being dragged away, authorities said Tuesday.
Secret Service Agent Shannon Zeigler said Cheney “was never in any harm or danger” during the incident Monday night in Madison Square Garden. The suspect, Thomas Frampton, was charged with assaulting federal officers and impeding the operation of the Secret Service.
Frampton was released on $50,000 bail and told to stay 100 feet from Cheney and President Bush. He also was ordered to give back a red convention volunteer’s shirt he used to get into the arena, along with any convention passes.
My first though upon hearing a man got near Cheney was to try to remember if I had seen Howard Dean on tv lately. Turns out it is just another Ivy League prick.
Secret service should’ve beat the living crap out of him. Hopefully they waited till they got the fool in private and worked him over.
Or just shoot his a$$ and plant a drop piece.

Why does having wealthy parents make so many kids stupid? It’s becoming a goddamned epidemic in this country.
They should throw the book at him, give him 24 months in stir, and let him be some bull-queer’s bitch. Then let’s see if he is any less stupid when he comes out on the other side.
