Vandals defaced the Pawling offices of Republican NY Assembly candidate Greg Ball, spray painting "fascist," "fascist pig" and swastikas on the walls, reports the Journal News.
And the supergeniuses behind this spelled "fascist" wrong -- they left out the first "s."
Haven't we hit our quota for political irony and hypocrisy yet this week?
First, John Kerry appears to insult the intelligence of our troops in Iraq. Then he says he really meant to insult the intelligence of the president, who actually got slightly better grades than he did at Yale.
Now we have local "political activists" labeling a candidate they oppose a fascist, and themselves employing fascist tactics to do it. Almost like a local little version of Kristallnacht.
Ball's opponent Ken Harper immediately denounced the attack, saying "This is deplorable and it doesn't represent my values or my campaign. I personally pledge to hunt down and apprehend the perpetrators, and hand them over to the authorities."
No he didn't, although he should have.
He actually said he hopes the miscreants are caught and punished, but "People get emotional about this stuff," as if this was all just boys-will-be-boys behavior.
He then launched an attack on his opponent.
Democrats -- could they get it less?
You know, I thought these people were all supposed to be so much smarter, sensitive and tolerant than the rest of us. Apparently not.
