"emergency room level ass whuppings"...

Great line!

Personally, I'm for "call the morgue, forget the ambulance" idea but I've been known to be a little too extreme! ;-)

By the looks of the haircut and the suit, I'm betting the guy in that picture is on Secret Service detail for sKerry. The left ear is blocked off from the picture, so we can't see if he's got the cord running down from the earpiece or not.

Very sparse crowd, little noise. AFter a while, as Kerry is droning on, the Freeper reporting hears somebody say "Is he done yet? You promised me a hot og. Can we go now?"

Shades of the 2000 election in Milwaukee, WI when Dim-o-crat voters were promised food and cigarettes!!!!!

Don't PW'ers always video tape their counter-protests? Perhaps, in order to defend against having the camera destroyed, place it some distance away with a telephoto lens and parabolic mike.

No one blew it up on this thread. I'm talking about what's in his hand. The pixels are large, but shows it clearly some device with all rectangular shapes and edges in a parallel array. He's also holding something else that covers part of the rectangular screen.

Little girl's brother-

Yes, Sophia is ok, but a little confused because "the people changed and got mean" as soon as she held up her sign. We were at the visit in the hopes of winning the people who are unsure and reassuring those who support President Bush. Among those supporters, much to my surprise and delight, were one of the drivers for the Edwards motorcade (who honked and gave a thumbs up after dropping off Edwards) and some police from both WV and Ohio.

It sounds like you have a wonderful family. Parents who care and are involved and children who are the same - and stand up for their beliefs.

I suspect there will be some media storm over this, and I hope that somehow that ends up being a blessing rather than a curse for all of you.

I know your sister is very young, but hopefully she can get some idea that there are a lot of us who think what happened to her was awful and angered us greatly.

Me too. In another thread, we're trying to get the girl a whole bunch of plush elephants. Perhaps we should all try to get him somthing as well. Maybe along the lines of some lessons in the martial art of his choice?

midwest college lefties are like the south's college lefties then.

They stage a 6 man protest, then run like scared rabbits, if you try to argue with them.

the girls are actually tougher looking, but they freak out too when called on their cr@p.
Their college age guys have that bad poetry-writing, sensitive dumb@ss vibe, and the college girls go for the embittered, chubby feminist look. Ya never seen so much ugly.

The Young Republicans here tend to look American.

WELCOME to Free Republic, spiderman9!

See alos THIS report, from www.herald-dispatch.com:

A Republican family attended the rally to show support for the Bush-Cheney ticket. Phil Parlock, a Barboursville resident and strong Republican, said his family was accosted by some Kerry supporters.

"We do it peacefully and quietly to show respect. And, we don’t want to get kicked out of anything," Parlock said.

After standing on the tarmac with the Kerry supporters, Parklock and three of his children moved down to the airport road near a parking lot exit.

With Parlock were sons Phil II, 21, and Alex, 11, and daughter Sophia, 3.

Parlock said a Kerry supporter yanked a Bush-Cheney sign out of Sophia’s hands, making her cry. As they stood along the road later, someone threw the ripped-up remains of the sign at them as they passed.

God bless you and your family! Thank you for serving in the National Guard! Wasn't it great as to how well the President was received at the National Guard Association meeting in Vegas (and how poorly Kerry did)?!! Your parents have the support of THOUSANDS of us people out here who are watching this story unfold. Give your little sister a big hug on behalf of us all, and same for your little brother pictured in these 2 photos.

By the way, Gary "Beautiful Downtown Burbank" Owens" broadcasts from AM 1550 in Portland, Oregon http://www.1550kkad.com/

The music is old jazz standards with crooners like Sinatra, etc, and really fantastic. I heard a beautiful singer, who turned out to be Linda Rhondstat. Even though she is not exactly a Freeper, she sure sounded great back then...

Down here in Nashville...most of the local Barneys I know are big W supporters.

I got stopped by a local Belle Meade (posh Nashville village) cop and he wanted to know about my Molon Labe t-shirt.

My 4 year old boy knows what time it is with this election and knows to beware of ANSWER or MoveOn.org types.

It's a tuff young lesson for a sweet young mind....but life is about such things sometimes....we just hate seeing it happen to them ...especially in the pics.

I can say with all honesty....I would never ever wish to see a lefty's little child subjected to the same...nevr ever. There is something down deep wrong with that.

Anyone as an adult (like baseball cap punk) mess with someone's little kids and very bad things can happen real quick.

You said, in your earlier posts to this thread:

Among those supporters, much to my surprise and delight, were one of the drivers for the Edwards motorcade (who honked and gave a thumbs up after dropping off Edwards) and some police from both WV and Ohio.

Thank you for sending this to Drudge Report, and for all of the support. I was at the Edwards visit to the tri-state airport in Kenova, WV (near Huntington). I was not up front with my dad and siblings, but at the entrance to the airport, silently greeting airport traffic, as well as Sen. Edwards with a homemade Bush sign and U.S. and West Virginia flags.

Thanks for the Sit-Rep on this event! You were a FReeper in spirit before you logged on and registered and posted!!!! WOO HOO! If there is anything we out here in Internet-land can do for you and your fellow Guardsmen and women, please speak up!

The left wingers up here are about the same as yours.

As for the union goons, they are generally like the average school bully. Literally. Only tough when they have numbers and are up against the elderly, women, kids, groups with 1/3 the numbers of their gang etc.

I may be overreacting.

The Indymedia swill alarms and disgusts me. We're going to have to deal with these cockroaches sooner or later. Michael Moore has legitimized a radical fringe into the body politic, and I frankly see the seeds of a burgeoning SDS/Weatherman type movement coming from the ALF/ANSWER crowd.

I don't like the PW just wandering into that abyss haphazardly. It's gonna get ugly after W beechslaps Kerry November 2.

The guy was also over the legal alcohol limit. Also had a suspended driver's license. Didn't have insurance. (I wonder if he was wearing his seat belt?)

Sounds like a typical democrat to me... It wouldn't surprise me if he was being paid a bounty for each sign that was brought in. I do wonder if he was wearing a brown shirt....Kristall Nacht II may be upon us soon.

We have a lot of young folks on W's side down here....and some are rather freaky looking too sometimes.

The left here is centered mainly around Vandy, the arts scene, homo-community (but I know homosexuals who openly support W), naive soccer moms, genX DINKs, and a few old yellow dogs.

In the white community here I'd say W carries at least 2/3rds.

In my homestate of Miss, it's around 80%....amazing.

Merciless unfeeling LIBERALS

Three-year-old Sophia Parlock cries while seated on the shoulders of her father, Phil Parlock, after having their Bush-Cheney sign torn up by Kerry-Edwards supporters on Thursday, Sept. 16, 2004, at the Tri-State Airport in Huntington, W.Va. Democratic vice presidential candidate John Edwards (news - web sites) made a brief stop at the airport as he concluded his two-day bus tour to locations in West Virginia and Ohio.

BTW we got the plate number of the guy who threw the torn sign pieces at us and called him in to the littering hotline. Although my dad was distraught with those taking and ripping up signs, he continued to endure and show restraint- we weren't there to cause trouble, rather, we were there show the dedication of Bush supporters.
