Leave the Politicking to Us, Son

A college student attempting to ask 3 questions of John Kerry was forcibly restrained and tasered by 6 police-peeps (see video), and is currently behind bars. The 3 questions were as follows, in brief (full questions can be heard in the video)

1) Why did you concede the 2004 presidential election, since you clearly won the election after all the voter fraud corrections?

2) If the standard for impeachment is a blowjob, how come the Democrats have not impeached Bush, based on his illegal actions?

3) Do you belong to a secret society called the skull & bones?

It was after this last question that the police rushed in to attack, causing many Xfiles fans to simultaneously mumble ‘aha’ through Dorito stained lips. Oh, and many news articles have left the 3rd question out completely. Aha! Of course, they misrepresented the 1st 2 questions, which are the main ones that Kerry has still not sufficiently answered.

As you can see, he asked his questions pretty quickly, and posed no threat. The following official statement from the University of Florida is clearly untrue, so perhaps the video footage was not available to them at the time.

‘He apparently asked several questions — he went on for quite awhile — then he was asked to stop,” university spokesman Steve Orlando said. “He had used his allotted time. His microphone was cut off then he became upset.”

The student was charged with…. you guessed it: resisting an officer and disturbing the peace, according to Alachua County jail records. It is so much more peaceful when people do not question authority.

Update:

Prior to asking his questions, the student, Andrew Meyers, cut into line, which was not polite. To quote the Rude Pundit, in his well worded article on this matter: “…if being an asshole is all that it takes for some to think you deserve a shot of electricity, well, let’s march over to Fox “news” and let the voltage flow.”

Two of the officers were granted paid vacation for their efforts. No reports on if they were also offered candy.

  1. In one of my college journalism classes, the professor asserted that photos of dogs and fire hoses being used against Civil Rights protestors in the 1960’s turned the tide of public opinion in the movement’s favor.

    One can only hope that these images will have a similar effect.

    I have my doubts though. OJ’s back.

  2. I hope so too, Vicky. During the 1960’s, many people tried to draw attention to their causes, including setting themselves on fire. The combined effect was enormous, and eventually Black and Women’s rights were won and the Vietnam war ended, and the country celebrated with cocaine, sex, and disco. I seem to have strayed from your point, but hey – all OJ wanted was his stuff back.
