OMG pies and tomatoes are so horrendous.
Next thing you know it will be outrageous for someone to wear a pink shirt.
This so called crime is hardly anything like the pre-emptive strikes ordered and approved of by the very same type of politicians. Instead of jeers those get cheers.
That is whats wrong with this country today.
The very same people outraged at pie and tomato throwing are the same people who have no problem with throwing depleted uranium and bombs at innocent people. Those result in deaths, not a trip to the washroom to clean up.
"No your honor I was only trying to give him a taste of the pie and it slipped"
She is still addressed as such. As is any politician out of office. Or so that's my understanding. A courtesy, nothing more...
Your own comment that you wish it had hit her between the eyes...really? What does that accomplish that couldn't have been done better by word, either written or spoken?

Just because it's been done in the past, does not make it acceptable now... I'd like to think that we've progressed a little bit as a society...
I feel this is a sign, and not a good one, of a sharp decline in the civility of political discourse. You, quite obviously, disagree. That's cool (where's that tomato? I just had it... .), we can agree to disagree.
