McCain Rally Interrupted By Community Organizer


















September 28, 11:14 AM EST

BEDFORD FALLS, NY (Mojopost) – Sen. John McCain was interrupted during a campaign rally today by Mr. George Bailey, CEO of Bailey Building & Loan Association. Bailey, locally recognized as a community organizer, philanthropist and Obama supporter, rushed the stage to address McCain.

“I helped a few people get out of your slums, Sen. McCain, and what's wrong with that? Why - here, you're all businessmen here. Doesn't it make those people better citizens? Doesn't it make them better customers? You - you said - what'd you say a minute ago? They had to wait and save their money before they even ought to think of a decent home. Wait? Wait for what? Until their children grow up and leave them?”

Bailey said, “Do you know how long it takes a working man to save five thousand dollars? Just remember this, Sen. McCain, that this rabble you're talking about - they do most of the working and paying and living and dying in this community. Well, is it too much to have them work and pay and live and die in a couple of decent rooms and a bath? Anyway, my father didn't think so. People were human beings to him. But to you - a warped, frustrated old man - they're cattle.”

Bailey was Tasered to the ground and dragged from the rally by his hair. He was arrested shortly after. Bailey’s neighbors posted bail and he was released on his own recognizance.

Sen. McCain had no comment.

I'll admit it: I didn't want to know anything more about the US elections. Now I only read my news in the Mojopost, def. a fresh POV ;-)

Thanks, LV - I'm having far too much fun. It's all true, if you squint.

Mojo, will an angel get her wings? (Love this one too!)

Mojopo said...

Minnie, yes. Clarence was handing 'em out while George got Tasered. Good question, and thanks for asking. I was so happy to have a front row spot.

mojopo is the funniest person you will ever meet. She has a crafty wit. She's just one biscuit and gravy short of having her own live comedy show!

Speedy - thank you. Whenever I have questions about the world, I think of Frank Capra movies and then the world makes sense.

Mojopo said...

Thanks for linking me to this, Mojo.


How ya been? I am fixin' to head to the other coast for a one week plein air pastel workshop. . . . . and lounge on the beaches of the Outer Banks! We are just hoping there is gas for our rental car when we land . . . .

Enjoy the debate . . . . if there is one.

Go Joe!!!

Lefty, I'm doin' swell, you betcha!

I've heard Grampy has suspended his campaign again. I know - it suspended my disbelief, too. Does this mean Sarah gets a note to stay home on Thursday?
