I’m pretty sure it’s in The Federalist Papers, somewhere in the back

It’s good to know that when Joe “Noun, Verb, Unconstitutional” Miller represents Alaska in the World’s Worst Deliberative Body, he’ll be prepared to stand up for the kind of society imagined by our nation’s founders.  For example, I’m sure we all remember when James Madison proposed that candidates for public office should be allowed to employ goons to detain and handcuff reporters who ask questions at public events.

Of course, since this happened on Sunday — and has thus become part of his “background” — reporters should be aware that Joe Miller will no longer be answering questions about the incident.

    Those pussy, wussy Dems (the few, the proud, the brave) in Alaska and their pals in the “lamestream” media must scare the hell out of a tough guy like Joe Miller, so much so, that he has to have security from an outfit named “Landing Zone”. Of course, on his visit to DC he did seem to very interested in getting new drapes…hmmm

    Look, he’s creating jobs. He can only do that in the private sector, as there has never been a single job created by the government.

  • I guess the goons will show up at the polls and “screen” out the wrong voters. Democracy at its best.

    There is a special secret clause in the Constitution that says Republicans can do whatever the hell they want to and SHUT UP!

    Make it Alexander Hamilton, and you wouldn’t be quite as far from the truth.

  • Remember, these are the people who only want to defend our liberty and freedom from tyranny. If they have to arrest people with their private police force to keep us all free, well, you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.

    They want to say the Dispatch guy assaulted them, okay, he-said vs. he-said.

    The perhaps more interesting question is, what were the goons doing with handcuffs in the first place?

    If you don’t have a legal right to cuff people, why do you have handcuffs?

      I’ve been to a number of parties where handcuffing someone was seen as a friendly gesture, but I doubt these guys are bent that way. An entirely different way, sure…

    Nate Silver has Murkowski 2 points away from Miller with Miller dropping fast. Let’s hope the jackbooting just seals the deal.
