If this were a fake story perpetrated by a McCain worker, it would be ALL OVER the news.

Great question, Dan. Looks like John McCain is not the only one with an anger problem. It seems to be a common trait among his supporters, too. I have been reading lots of stories like this one lately. Desperation will do that to a person, I guess.

No different from the Tawana Brawly/Al Sharpton scam, remember? Yeah, that's right the McCain supporter is racist, the Brawly/Sharpton scam just a poor minority a victim.

I think this idiot woman would have avoided this all together if she had complied at the FIRST request to leave the property. Did the article not state that she was told to leave the property several times? But like the typical spoiled, over-entitled Obama fanatic, she just could not resist the impulse to impose her will on another person. She had it coming.

So an old lady "had it coming"? You are sick in the head and indicative of a TYPICAL McCain supporter apparently. The man claims he asked her to leave we still don't know what the womans story is. Why didn't the man just close the door? Wouldn't that have been the sane thing to do?

Don't answer that. I know that people like you can't distiguish what is sane anymore.

The point is that he just could of called the cops instead of physically abusing her. The cops would have escorted her away from his property. But, he took the law into his own hands.

Typical right winger- beat up on a woman then lie about it. My bet is this guy will probably be going away for a little vacation as a guest of the state.

Why didn't you just go all the way back to the 30s since you want to reach into the annals of history to come up with a similar story to try and justify the actions of that fat azz girl in PA. Look numbnut, that paleface idiot gal was wrong, end of story - you can bring up whatever you want, it still doesn't make her any less stupid and incarcerated.

That's why we have police departments.
Rather than call to report a traspasser, this guy chooses to inflict his own brand of " justice " via a sound beating against a woman whom he disagreed with politically.
The neocon McBush supporters have many misogynists, intolerant racists, crazy violent liars among their ranks.
The very thought that America may indeed have a non lily white democrat in office is extremely threatening to those type of people.
I do not see Barack Obama supporters beating up on republican women.....
The only republicans left are either millionaires or fools.

Right, Barry's people would never do anything like that. How about the Barry supporter who puched and kicked an old white man at a Nursing home because he wanted another ballot. I will also tell you about a few of my observations at what happened at polling places during the primaries. I will aslo be watching to see if these same tactics are occuring whether it be an Obama or Mc Cain supporter.
Even though I'm against Barry, I still encourage people to vote whether it be for my condidate or whomever.
