Silly political scorekeeping

Liberal bloggers are upset, even apoplectic, that a conservative blogger would dare to suggest that if Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett had a concealed gun, he might not have suffered the injuries he did. Wow, conservatives are just rotten people.

Except when a more-prominent liberal blog runs a blog post by uber-liberal Keith Schmitz making the exact opposite point while using the lead pipe attack against the mayor.

Of course, it didn't occur to the liberal bloggers that their faux indignation is also just using the attack for more political points.

Wow, liberals are just rotten people.

As for the attack itself, if such a poll were conducted I truly believe Mayor Barrett would be voted the least-likely politician to ever be physically assaulted. C'mon, the biggest scandal of the guy's career was getting pulled over for speeding while delivering his daughter's girl scout cookies. It's terrible that he was in the wrong place at the wrong time trying to do the right thing and getting brutally attacked for it. The Wigderson family wishes him a speedy recovery.
