Channeling Kyle's Mom
"Just remember what the MPAA says: Horrific, deplorable violence is okay, as long as people don't say any naughty words!"
But as always, it's OK if you are a Republican.
In the kind of class act Republicans are becoming better known for as of late, Republican Bill Cadman (of the holiest of holy cities in Colorado, The Holy Springs) told Val Vigil during the morning session this: ""If you try that again, I'll ram my fist up your ass."
All this over the fact that Val had made a small edit in a law regarding whether or not families of veterans could get special veteran license plates. According to the Rocky, "Vigil was trying to do a favor for the family members of Lance Cpl. Thomas Slocum, 22, of Thornton, who was killed March 23 near An Nasiriyah in Iraq."
So, if we wanted to play like Rove (and it's not so much an issue of wanting, more an issue of the fact that he manages to win the hearts and minds of America despite the fact that he has no soul) we could spin this and say that not only does Cadman threaten vaguely homoerotic violence toward his colleagues, he does so to impede the passage of a law that would allow veterans' families to commemorate their fallen loved ones with a license plate. So he's violent, possibly gay and hates the troops!
That, my friends, is the Rove-O-Matic. Now if we could have just gotten this on tape so we could do the old Deanery on him and repeat his outburst nightly on KUSA.
