Take a moment and imagine the outrage, the front-page headlines, the call for frog-marches, the Rush-Limbaugh-blaming, and the tears flowing in the streets, if a Democrat was physically attacked at their home by a registered Republican. Just imagine.
That’s exactly what happened to Kentucky Senator Rand Paul on Friday. How many of you have heard this story? I hadn’t; I saw it in my Twitter feed. To be fair, I didn’t watch any TV today, but as much as I have been on the internet, you would think it would be easily noticed, right? Not if it’s a Republican. Well, here is the story. This happened at about 3 in the afternoon on Friday — just a guy out mowing the lawn…
Sen. Rand Paul was assaulted at his home in Bowling Green, Kentucky by an irate neighbor while he was mowing his lawn on Friday afternoon, according to neighbors.
Kentucky State Police have arrested the senator’s assailant, identified as Rene Boucher, 59, of Bowling Green for intentionally assaulting Paul at his home, causing minor injury, local law-enforcement officials confirmed to Fox News.
Fortunately it appears that no serious injuries resulted from the trouble.
Officials for Sen. Paul’s office say that the former presidential candidate did not suffer any major injuries. “Senator Paul was blindsided and the victim of an assault,” Kelsey Cooper, a spokeswoman for Paul, said in a statement to thehill.com. “The assailant was arrested and it is now a matter for the police. Senator Paul is fine.”
I am shocked by this next part, and I am sure you are, too.
Voting records from the Kentucky State Board of Election list Boucher as a registered democrat, according to The Daily Caller. A person with his name also works as an anesthesiologist in Bowling Green.
I don’t understand how the MSM can sit there and continue to claim that they are not biased. It’s insulting to America.
