Oh, Boy: Debate Moderator Files Charges Against LaHood Campaign Manager For Assault, After the Moderator Asked Him Questions about Term Limits

If you listened to the debate last night all the way through, you would have heard a confused bit of tumult before they cut away in the coverage.

What was that?

Well, what that was was one of the debate moderators approaching LaHood's campaign manager to follow up, I imagine, on LaHood's refusal to commit himself to term limits, and that campaign manager allegedly then assaulting the moderator.

The radio station the moderator works at has released a statement, reported by PJ Media's David Steinberg.

So yeah, when the big knock on you is that you're a distant, insulated scion of the privileged political class, you probably don't want your campaign managers assaulting members of the press trying to ask about a question your boy dodged.


Incidentally, and I would never have guessed this, but it's LaHood's refusal to promise to only serve for a limited number of terms that is making all the local press.

I didn't know term limits was still a big issue. I guess it is in the Quincy, IL area.

Why I Support Term Limits:

I think term limits are good. I think that people suck up the attitudes and bigotries of those they see all the time. People form a society, and then attempt to advance socially by the rules of that society.

These long-serving professional politician motherf***ers form a society with other long-serving professional politician motherf***ers, and adopt each others mores and bigotries, including hatred of us, the non-political-class.

The longer someone serves, the further he moves from the person who deserved to be elected and the closer to someone who needs to be run out of town and tarred and feathered.

There is an actual evil in some places. I don't mean supernatural evil, but if you, horrible thought, were in prison for six years, you would indeed begin to adopt many attitudes and thoughts of prisoners.

A place where you take other people's money and spend it to feather your own nest is an evil place. People should know that money comes from hard work and the voluntary agreement with other folks to exchange goods and services for money. They need to feel that, and after six years playing by Capitol rules where money is gotten by swindle and menace, they forget that.

We should strictly limit how long we let people serve in such places. We let these people sit in monster-factories for a decade, and then wonder why they went bad.
