Stupid Moments in Florida Politics...in Pennsylvania?

And he blew them a kiss?

Jeb Bush was in Pennsylvania this last Friday showing his support for Senator Rick Santorum when a large group of protesters made their presence known.

According to the Post-Gazette:
Protesters said Gov. Bush blew them a kiss, acknowledging the crowd of about 30
chanting pickets that was made up of United Steelworkers and members of Uprise Counter Recruitment, a tour traveling through 22 cities to support anti-war efforts.

When the protesters got closer to Bush, they shouted "Jeb, go home."

Bush got out of the area quickly, but got surrounded again and police ended up using their tasers on two men.

The protest, however, was said to have been a peaceful protest, so why tasers had to be used I can't say.

I sympathize with the people of Pennsylvania. Having Rick Santorum as your senator is bad enough. Add Jeb Bush to the mix and I'd want to protest, too.

Wow! You're amazing. And yes, Santorum is bad enough.

Thank you for this blog... even though I've never even been to Florida, it's very enlightening.
