ABC’s Brian Ross, curious about Michele Bachmann’s self-medication regimen, thought he would engage her in a little chat at a campaign rally. Hilarity ensued:

Ross dashed after Bachmann, repeatedly asking whether she had ever missed a House vote due to a migraine. She ignored him. Ross pursued her into a parking area behind the stage. Her aides grew alarmed. When Ross made a beeline for the white SUV waiting to carry Bachmann away, two Bachmann men pounced on him, grabbing and pushing him multiple times with what looked to me like unusual force. In fact, I have never seen a reporter treated so roughly at a campaign event, especially not a presidential one. Ross was finally able to break away and lob his question at Bachmann one more time, but she continued to ignore him.

Afterward, I asked Ross — a hard-nosed pro who nevertheless seemed slightly shaken — whether he had ever been treated so roughly. “A few times,” he told me. “Mostly by Mafia people.”

This of course puts Marcus in a new light. We’re thinking of casting him as Junior.

Reporter Accosted After Bachmann Comments on Migraines [Time]

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That: Total Vito.

Hey you’re from El Ay. You may know the answer to this (I know Dodger will). What’s up with the old guy with the monotone who does the play-by-play for Dodgers games on KCAL? I’m on a trip to the so-called “Inland Empire” (a.k.a. The Smell of Cow Shit Blowing in Hot Dusty Wind in the Morning) and watching the Dodgers-Giants game on TeeVee. This announcer makes me want to throw the TV through the window. So annoying.

Ohhhhh, Benedick! Sport you can believe in.

ADD: And more.

Holy mother fucking ghost — I’m flipping through channels on the TV and stumble upon that stupid twat Nancy Grace in some fugly ass KMart suit reporting live from the “Caylee Anthony Memorial Tree” — what the fuck? As if we needed more definitive proof that Idiocracy was a documentary…

here’s how reporters should treat body guards who want to get a little too pushy shovey:
the ass whupee body guard is joe alu unsuccessfully guarding the wife of infamous south florida ponzi schemer scott rothstien

If you like Idiocracy, you should look up an old science fiction short story The Marching Morons by C. M. Kornbluth. The Kornbluth-Pohl book The Space Merchants is also too close for comfort. Right now he’s having a scotch and smoking a cigarette in bar somewhere in the great beyond and telling the barkeep, “I told you so.”
