Bloody Racine: Huge Anti-Ryan Crowd Storms Town Hall

Jesus, this is getting out of control.

Prayers for anyone caught in the melee.

Thanks to Johnny. I think that's John McCormack's picture; I hope he's okay. I'll email him to make sure.

Whoops: Actually, I probably shouldn't use this joke, because that sets the bad incentive that they should engage in violence, huh?

And a commenter tells me, no joke, a fight nearly did break out, actually. Apparently one of ours got a bit overzealous:

5:45 p.m. - Fight nearly breaks outI n Racine when Ryan's final listening session for the week ended, a fight nearly broke outside between Ryan supporters and opponents. Nancy Larson, 52, of Madison, who was part of the confrontation, was talking to a man about her disappointment in Ryan's plan. But it started into a full-blown argument and the man, a Ryan supporter, was eventually escorted by police away from the community center.

Throughout the listening session, Ryan received a lot of support and warm applause for his plan to cut spending and to drill oil in America. But throughout his power point and question and answer period, he also received more interruptions in Racine than he received anywhere else.

4:10 p.m. - Ryan asks man to leave

Ryan asked one man to leave when he started shouting about health care. When police started walking toward him, he walked out.

So they are astroturfing the hell out of these with their union goons and MoveOn buffoons.

I won't do this joke again. Not with the red font flaming skull, anyway.

Video of Protesters: Dopier up close than from far away.

Four of them.

Or, as AP calls it, "a sea of thousands."
