I cannot believe that this has happened in America.
Senator Carl Levin had an apple pie thrown in his face this morning while talking to Democrats in a Mecosta County, Michigan deli. The reason? He's a defender of Israel, and he doesn't vote 99% of the time down the liberal foreign policy line. Of course my reaction is: And..........throwing a pie at a United States Senator is your only available response?
For some reason this incident is insulting to me. Whether a US Senator be Republican or Democrat; Conservative or Liberal, that individual deserves a certain amount of respect, and what happened in Michigan this morning broke the barrier between respectful disagreement with an elected official, and downright disrespectful intolerance.
