Very Interesting. In 2002, the ‘Prince of Peace’, ‘Lamb of Chicago’ Barack Obama had to be physically restrained during an altercation in a room off the Il Senate floor where Senators Obama and Rickey Hendon had been shouting at one another.
For his part, the rarely reticent Hendon won’t discuss the altercation, except to confirm that it occurred. “I have been advised to leave Barack alone and that is what I am going to do,” Hendon said. “I am going to let things stay in the past. It happened. That’s all I can say. It happened.”
Some questions from Geraghty:
Lots of people get angry, and even the best of us have our tempers flare every now and then. But is this incident ignored because the image of a furious Obama, having to be physically restrained, so contrasts the nice guy/secular messiah image we’re seeing in the media?
Boy, that quote from Hendon sure sounds like clichéd dialogue from a mob witness from a cop movie, huh? Who “advised him to leave Barack alone”?
Any Democrat want to raise John McCain’s alleged “temper issues” after this?
I’ll answer that last one for him. Yeah. Of course they will.
They’re just that brazen.
