Attaking women - nice one rebputirdcans. Anger management lessons, anyone? Well that might not work, since most of the rabid right are just large four year olds.
I hope this gets publicized in Caledonia to shame this cowardly bully. I hope the woman presses chageges.

He asked her to leave his property. She refused. Call the police -- don't yank her hair like a neanderthal.

She gets a citation for trespassing (maybe, because it will be hard to prove he asked her to leave). He gets jail time for assault.

The political context is irrelevant to this case.

I don't understand why Obama volunteers have to go from Chicago to Caledonia to canvas for votes. What happened to this woman was wrong, but I'm fearful that Obama is just part of the Chicago Democratic machine. Hold onto your hats folks if he wins!!

This woman should know better than going door to door and arguing with people that she doesnt know. Obviously, the guy shouldnt have assaulted her, but I love how you liberal sheep just group it together as a republican thing.
When are you people going to figure out that half the country doesnt like Obama and the liberals and it wont change our opinions no matter how much you try to shove it down out throats.
This woman should get cited for trespassing for not leaving his property when asked.

You democrats are fantastic. You preach equality and the destruction of stereotypes and then spend your time here lumping all republicans into one group based on the actions of an idiot. Your multiple posts and name-calling say more about the democrat party than this one idiot says about republicans or any of his other associations for that matter.

From the story: "Goetsch tells the Journal Times in Racine that he did pull the woman's hair and regrets his actions." The only thing this guy regrets is that he didn't break her neck and bury her.

I hear he's Michele Bachmann's former campaign manager!
Oh give it up

I have 2 signs on my front door. One says No Solicting and my new one say's No Electioneering. It seems that etinkle, nodada, and angryal's people can not understand the meaning of Electioneering. They still knock on the door as I sit and wave at them. They are as pitiful as the dodr to door religious folks. I never answer I just laugh.

Remember folks vote "Right" vote REPUBLICAN!

Being a Barack Hussein supporter in "Anywhere" Wisconsin is a bad idea and as election day will prove that when Wisconsin voters hit the polls the majority will do the right thing and vote for McCain(70 percent plus).
I hear you're writing in a ticket of Joe McCarthy and Michele Bachmann. Good idea!

Huge smile...Ok,,,I was trying to be civil and polite.

If you can not see the term " Obama Mama " as racist then you speak more of yourself than of him I guess. Clearly it has a racist connotation.
