~ Wouldn't You Like to be a Meanie Too? ~

The sound you're hearing is a campaign staffer chomping on a hook:

Three-year-old Sophia Parlock [pictured] cries while seated on the shoulders of her father, Phil Parlock, after having their Bush-Cheney sign torn up by Kerry-Edwards supporters on Thursday, Sept. 16, 2004, at the Tri-State Airport in Huntington, W.Va. Democratic vice presidential candidate John Edwardsmade a brief stop at the airport as he concluded his two-day bus tour to locations in West Virginia and Ohio.

One side will play up the mean grownup making the little kid cry. The other side will play up the mean grownup using his little kid to hold up a sign at a place it really wouldn't be welcomed. Both sides are, of course, right. But, like that crude little saying about the special olympics, winning this particular argument still means you're retarded.

Are we having fun yet?

Update: As noted in the comments, it looks like this guy is a "serial disruptor" who likes to play with signs a lot. See? Retarded.

Shameful tactic to do that to a kid. All those people on the 'picket lines' (cause thats what they all look like at those rallies) are a bunch of mOONbats if you ask me.

I think this whole thing might be a hoax:

Just spreading the word.

Exploiting your family to stage a convenient little media event in an attempt to smear Democrats and labor unions... Aren't freepers amazing?
