Alaska’s Joe Miller shows he doesn’t believe in freedom of the press or the political process
When candidates like Colorado's appointed Obama Democrat Michael Bennet (D-Washington, DC) hide behind body guards so reporters and bloggers can't ask them questions, most voters tend to shrug and not give it much thought. But when Alaska's Republican U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller hires thugs to protect him and they handcuff a blogger who wants to ask an embarrassing question, you know that Miller has no business going to the U.S. Senate.

I agree, Don. Let’s not forget our own beloved Hick does the same thing - routinely preventing the lovely ladies from WhoSaidYouSaid from attending his events.
This guy’s lucky these were rental cops, and not genuine government-issue union thugs, or he would have likely found himself tased and beaten to a pulp.Posted by Laura Victoria on 10/18/2010 at 03:51 PM
Looks like the liberal blogger pushed one of Miller’s guys and provoked them into taking him into custody. A comment on Politico says that Alaska allows citizen arrests in assault cases.Posted by Donald E. L. Johnson on 10/18/2010 at 06:54 PM
