If he wins, suddenly the Rock's idea of running for president is making immensely good sense.  Maybe Chuck Norris will run for office also.



Meanwhile in Greece someone blew up a former prime minister.

It's comforting to know that we can always take solace in the words: "at least we aren't Greece".

Hold on. He body slammed him? What?

Now I have a picture in my head of Gianforte being followed by the reporter, walking into a dark alleyway, the reporter losing him, only to suddenly hear him shout "WHY ARE YOU FOLLOWING ME??" on top of a lamp post above his head, and then belly flopping onto him.

Meanwhile in Greece someone blew up a former prime minister.

That's, um, one way to win an argument.

Regrettably we don't have any video of this incident.  I'm not sure why he decided to use a body slam.  If I had to pick a technique to use I think it would be a head butt.

It's a politician that lost his temper and acted foolishly.  That's notable.  But it's not what's interesting to me.  What's interesting is going to be the voters reaction to it.  Ideally voters would decide to vote for a candidate who uses less body slams and more words to win arguments.  Trump has spent the last year calling the Press the enemy of the American people.  A lot of his supporters are buying into it.  It wouldn't surprise me if this actually helps him win. 

The penalty for assaulting someone like this is a maximum of $500 or six months in prison.  If, hypothetically, a politician could get a 5 point bump in the polls for a stunt like this then it's probably a prudent thing to do so.  It kind of reminds me of early American history when dueling was legal.

There were some Fox News reporters there, they describe what happened http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/05/24/greg-gianforte-fox-news-team-witnesses-gop-house-candidate-body-slam-reporter.html

Gianforte is trying to spin it that Jacob made the first move, but even Fox News isn't backing him on that.

I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

For anyone who's curious:

Look, I don't know what you think about it, but a body slam is a pretty unusual technique to attack reporters. I'd love to have seen a video, but the audio is hilarious in itself.

http://www.lifezette.com/polizette/bombshell-montana-assault-witness-changes-story-admits-no-neck-grab/

One of the Fox News witnesses has changed her story (after telling the same one a few times).

Quote
“At that point, Gianforte grabbed Jacobs by the neck with both hands and slammed him into the ground behind him,” she wrote, “Faith, Keith and I watched in disbelief as Gianforte then began punching the reporter. As Gianforte moved on top of Jacobs, he began yelling something to the effect of, ‘I’m sick and tired of this!'”

Now her story is -

Quote
Details from Acuna's report quickly went viral online, but she said Thursday during an interview on "The Laura Ingraham Show" that she misstated the neck grab.

"One of you guys said last night that he put his hands around his neck," Ingraham said. "Which, as somebody who's done a lot of taekwondo and self-defense, to me that seemed, that might not be exactly right."

"You know, and I'm the one who said that," Acuna replied, "I saw both his hands go up, not around his neck in a strangling type of way, but more just on each side of his neck, just grabbed him and I guess it could've been on his clothes, I don't know."

Ingraham asked Acuna if that meant she was changing her story.

"Again, just to clarify, he didn't grab him by the neck with both hands in the way that was initially described, that's not quite accurate," Ingraham asked at the end of the interview.

"​No, so it wasn't like he grabbed him around the neck, he had one hand on each side of his neck," Acuna confirmed.

We've now reached a place where the subject of martial arts and the election process overlap.  Maybe it's time to install a speed bag in the garage.

Politics is no longer about a race to the top through professionalism and honour, but a race to the bottom through vulgarity and depravity.
