Doesn’t look like much of a slap to me—looked very playful. They’re both smiling.

Since the whole philosophy of liberalism is based on emotions and not reason, you will get an emotional, not rational, response to electoral defeat.

Watch it again.

The Slapper lady angrily scolds Barrett, then lets the hand fly, with a scowl. Gal next to her is all smiles until she figures out what just happened, then stops smiling. Same with Barrett.

Assault and Battery.

LOL.

Dear Mr. Barrett, (regardless of what political policies you support) it is not worth your time and effort to try to represent such RiffRaff. They can;t be helped. Go get yourself a real job now.

Yup. It wasn’t just a little tap. It was hard enough to make him jerk his head back and stop smiling.

Priceless, enjoy!

It is amazing that NBC called it less than an hour after polls closed after they (MSNBC) spent a week working up Dems on how close the race it would be. Last night they were claiming that a single vote (it could be you Sally Liberal) may decide the outcome, then boom their world explodes.

You know, I watched this a few times. He took it well, and it looked like she might have been trying to hug him afterwards, as she seems to have patted his shoulder immediately after...

But if she slapped him, isn’t that technically “assault”?

Between this incident and the deranged little crybaby twit weeping on Youtube, going viral as we speak, there’s some serious derangement going on over on the left.

And that is always a thought worth smiling over...

Photo from Barrett's Victory Party last night

Suggested caption: "Forget the champagne; gimme a double shot of whiskey"

The photo came from this Boston Herald article: Analysis: Unions take a big hit in Walker’s win.

A quote from that article:

......that a victory for Walker would mean that more politicians around the country would be emboldened to take on public-sector unions. “It will give some other governors a dose of bravery,” Duffy said.

Yeah! We need a lot of GOP Governors who will prove to be worthy heirs of Teddy's Big Stick policy.

Watch her face, she looks livid with him. Her world vanished after being told for days that it would be close. MSNBC really led these lib folks off a cliff.

I hope she is arrested and charged with assault. Her behavior is uncosionable. You can bet that if she were a member of the Barrett opposition, they’d throw her in jail and throw the key away.

Another good quote from that Boston Herald article:

And note these two historic firsts:

I thot it was a sincere, hard slap. THEN she put her arm on his shoulder, and the second slap was more playful.

She must be a GOP mole. This had to be Sarah Palin’s fault.
Or Bush’s fault. Or planned by the vast right wing conspiracy.

Liberals are all sweetness & light, peace love, dove, etc.///

Seriously, it’s a good look for them—they really took it in
the shorts with this loss. AFSCME, strangled in its cradle.

If you watch the rest of the video, you see a couple of fairly large guys get in between the two of them. I imagine she was hustled out.

No sympathy here. When you lie down with dogs, you rise up with fleas.

Reaction of the smiling lady is a giveaway. The guy with the mustache behind the “slapp-er” has the same reaction.

Poor libs - they really are so superior intellectually and morally, so much better in every way than all those who disagree with them - it’s just incomprehensible that people would find fault with what they believe, let alone so many people that they could actually lose an election - somebody must be at fault - like the dumb guy who actually tried to advance their cause for them - what a screwed up bunch.....
