That was Hippie Bashing, not Gay Bashing.
I miss the 1/2 hr News hour...
on the whole, I more agree with ChumpDumper's point that it behooves Romney, or he thinks it behooves him, to look tough here -- or something like that...the shallow tactical rationale is way more compelling to me than the deep psychological small talk in the article, even though there may be something to it for all I know.
What about the economy?
It is also being talked about.
You should read more.
The point of the story was not WHO got bullied or why, but that Gecko was a chickenshit, many-on-one, physically assaulting bully.
Another story in the article has Gecko walking a poor-sighted teacher into a closed door, then laughing at him.
And what is going on with dubya, RickyBobby, and Gecko all being CHEERLEADERS rather than macho men on the playing field?
So what? Kid got a free haircut.
So the family of the haircuttee said it didn't happen. Have they found an actual witness to this?
Gone, But Not Forgotten:
Attack Troop 1-61 Cav
Bayonette Troop 1-61 Cav
Comanche Troop 1-61 Cav
They didn't say it didn't happen.Betsy Lauber, one of John Lauber’s three sisters, spoke with ABC News Tuesday night regarding the accuracy of the story.
“The family of John Lauber is releasing a statement saying the portrayal of John is factually incorrect and we are aggrieved that he would be used to further a political agenda. There will be no more comments from the family,” she said.
She did not say specifically how the Washington Post story was incorrect.http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics...ying-incident/“Even if it did happen, John probably wouldn’t have said anything,” Christine Lauber said.
You're always making shit up.
There are no witnesses to the "haircut"
touche CD. I'm glad these five guys remember in painstaking detail what happened 40+ years ago.
Wait, Suddenly Right-Wing Bloggers Don't Want Candidates Vetted?
the Republican candidate leading an assault against a presumed gay schoolmate, pinning him down, and cutting his long hair while tears filled up in the boy's eyes, conservative bloggers were indignant the Post would bother with such trivial pursuits.
Suddenly the far-right press thinks it's pointless to delve deep into a candidate's past in search of clues about his personality and clues to what shaped him into an adult. Suddenly they mock efforts by the press to paint a detailed personal portrait of would-be presidents by combing over their biographies.
In short, suddenly right-wing bloggers are strongly opposed to vetting.
This represents a curious turn, because as we've been noting this week, the established mantra from Obama's media critics is that the press has repeatedly refused to delve into Obama's past in search of clues about his true self, and has refused to paint a detailed portrait of Obama's history.
