Ed Morrisey notes this photo of a protest outside a Sarah Palin speech in Eugene, Oregon:
Yes, that’s right: Eugene is a hate-free zone, except for the person who hopes that Sarah Palin chokes. Nice touch with the Obama logo there, chum. Don Surber adds:
Yes, that’s pretty liberal — harassing people who went to see someone speak.
From the Oregonian:
Rebecca McKenzie, 29, of Eugene left work at a nearby barbershop and grabbed a perch on an outdoor patio at Rockn Rodeo, a cowboy-themed bar across the street from the hotel. She watched the protests with a mix of fascination and chagrin.
“I think it’s pretty pathetic,” she said of the name-calling.
But c’mon. Palin? Eugene?
“I understand the oil and water thing,” McKenzie said. “But if you don’t approve, go home. Don’t come.”
Again, Don Surber:
That’s the actual do-your-own-thing attitude that liberals once pretended to embrace.
Well, it ain’t about that anymore, that’s for sure.
