Fascism in America? Maybe I Was Wrong!

At least the video of an antiwar protester being dragged from a microphone and Tasered by the police looks real bad. What's even worse is that the person who answers his question--and ignores this fracas going in with the student screaming in pain--is John Kerry. RoboSenator seems to be either completely and utterly unaware of this amazing sequence of events taking place in front of him--or completely and utterly unconcerned about it. Either way, it doesn't say much for John Kerry.

UPDATE: Other accounts suggest that, like the Rodney King video, what happened before the tape started rolling makes this look a little less absurd. I am still not happy with the police using a Taser on this kid--they should have been able to manhandle him out of there--but it does look like the punk was doing his best to get arrested, grabbing a microphone from someone else, and refusing to give it up.
