Enraged Lefty Slaps Barrett for Conceding
National Review ^ | June 6, 2012 | Jim Geraghty

Posted on 06/06/2012 4:45:22 AM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

Those warm, loving, kind-hearted leftists will turn on you so fast: last night an enraged supporter of Tom Barrett slapped him for conceding the race.

(HT: The Hope for America.)

I don’t recall – no pun intended – this sort of thing ever happening on an Election Night before.

I wonder how Democratic officeholders and their professional class feel about having a grassroots base that is, at least in some parts, psychotic enough to resort to physical violence upon their own candidates for acknowledging reality. At the time, Barrett trailed by about 10 percentage points or 200,000 votes; as of this morning, Walker won by 7 percentage points, or roughly 173,000 votes.

Video in original. She didn't look all that outraged to me.

Overblown story. Not sure why the Media is pushing this so much. I think she was playing around with him. The media is saying that tensions and emotions are high and people are showing it. I doubt it.

Yes, it looked like a light slap. It wasn’t as if she hauled off and pimp-slapped him.

Roger that. The video doesn't support the headline at all.

Traditionally, the “Progressives” would have said they need a “Vote Shift” of 100,000.

Looks to me like a security guy took her away. That’s not just joking around.

It wasn’t the pretty smiling lady who slapped him. The face of the slapper looked angry and a bit deranged.

The “Sore Loser Club” made appearances on TV last night basically saying, ‘OK, Walker won, but just you wait - he’ll be in all kinds of legal trouble soon’. What is THIS all about?

Actually, it did. She's probably one of those people for whom political victory is the be-all and end-all of existence, and when the State of Wisconsin collectively flipped the bird at her heroes (OBama, Labor Thugs and Union Goons), she made Barrett the object of her rage.

Maybe if she accepted Christ as her Savior, she wouldn't have so much anger.

Not sure why you're defending it. Just look at the woman's expression standing next her. That slap wasn't playful.

She looked mad to me....imagine feeling so self-righteous to think you can put your hand on someone else. That’s major boundaries issues that woman has. Boundaries is knowing where I end and where you begin. And Barrett is surrounded by a gaggle of similar people.

Yeah. The woman who hit him is obviously scolding him. Barrett's face is serious as he's talking to her and he looks away while he's talking - a sign that he wants the conversation to end.

She definitely is not just playing around.

Look at the faces of the people around her. They look like they’re aghast at what just happened.

Yep. Smiling Lady's expression goes from smile to shock while she is looking at and listening to the little woman that slapped him.

Wonder what public sector job the slapper holds?
