If by stumble they mean roughed up and pushed to the ground and then roughed up again. That’s a bit like saying Nelson Mandela lived in government housing for a while.

My favorite comment, so far, as I read through them on the original article:

Tokyo Globe, December 8 1941. Pearl Harbor.

The US Navy's newest agression against the peaceful empire of Japan has failed today. The American's attempt to use the USS Arizona as a submarine has ended in tragedy.

To all:

I don’t advocate mass emailing people, but if you do want to express your displeasure with his tactics, this is his email address:

mm@bluelinesc.com

Hopefully he hasn’t disabled it.

“McCormack told the Herald he met Coakley Jan. 5 after a radio debate at the WTKK (96.9-FM) studios, where he asked her four questions.

“She knew that there was a reporter who asked her a question. We had met before. I asked her four questions.

She saw me get knocked to the ground and kept walking,” said McCormack. “I wouldn’t say I was surprised. ... She’s decided she’s entitled to the seat without answering questions on issues that are of national importance.”

McCormack said there is a 10-inch rip on the right leg of his suit pants and a tiny bruise on his right leg from the incident.

An Associated Press photograph shows Coakley looking at McCormack while he’s lying on the sidewalk.

Michael Meehan, the Coakley campaign volunteer involved in the scufffle, told the Herald he did not push McCormack. He said he was escorting Coakley to her car outside the restaurant when she encountered a scrum of reporters and Republican operatives.

“I did not push him,” said Meehan, who is president of Blue Line Strategic Communications in Washington, D.C. He said he is volunteering for Coakley and has 25 years of experience as a Senate press aide.

(He has released a statement and apology.)

Lies .. they always lie, then apologize when
the truth is incontrovertible.

Just more proof of my 2009 tagline which will be my 2010 tagline.

Watch Coakley’s two thugs as they sight McCormack and the big thug goes after McCormack.

Then, watch the last 30 seconds or so after the thug pushed McCormack down and continued to hassle, assault and threaten him.
