@47- I don't think you're getting the metaphor. Hillary Clinton was a conciliatory machine politician who voted for the Iraq War and was exactly the kind of "finding common ground" triangulating moderate who made 50% of America not show up to vote. She wasn't fighting them "down there". She fought dirty against progressives, she acted "statesmenlike" with regard to the GOP. Their insane dislike of her had a lot to do with sexism and the fact it was so damn useful to stir up hatred of her back in the President Clinton days.

Wow. OK so...Airplanes, Jesus, Porn, autoerotic asphyxiation...more Jesus...
Can someone just give me the money that was wasted on this bullshit, because I can do more good for the world by heating my home with burning cash.

@20- If a random pedestrian did that to me I would not feel "assaulted". I would be alarmed, but since I would have been moving at a fast walk, it would have been easy enough to stop without causing any injury to either of us. If I was a bicycle cop, wearing armor from head to toe (they use gloves with built in knuck dusters, btw), I would be even less worried.
This looks to me like another case of absurd violence meted out on anyone who dares to make a cop feel annoyed. The police looked to be attempting to encircle a peaceful protest. A crew of armored, black clad, heavily armed people encircling me would be very frightening, and I think rational people would act to prevent that.
