Jerk of the year nominee?

NC Cop sends along this link to a story about a disgusting Bush-hater who was arrested yesterday after allegedly assaulting an 18 year old girl in a wheelchair who has cerebral palsy:

A man heckling First Lady Laura Bush and daughter Jenna outside the 92nd Street Y was arrested after he punched a wheelchair-bound girl whose parents has told him to shut up, authorities said yesterday. German Talis, 22, was shouting obscenities at the Bushes, who were leaving the building Tuesday, when he crossed paths with Wendy and John Lovetro and their daughter Maureen, 18, who has cerebral palsy.


“He began yelling about Iraq and Iran at Jenna Bush. She was waving at the crowd. I told the guy, ‘What are you doing? Shut up. This is about a child and books,’ ” said John Lovetro. “He was unperturbed. I said, ‘Get out of here! You’re being a moron!’ ”

The next thing he knew, Talis was allegedly punching Maureen – a fan of the first lady since meeting her in 2004.

“I heard my daughter hysterical yelling, ‘He’s hitting me!’ ” said Wendy Lovetro.

“He punched her on the shoulder blades, but that wasn’t enough,” she said.

“My husband pushed the wheelchair away from him and he reached beyond my husband and began pounding my daughter in the thigh.”

The two men fought as the president’s family drove off. Cops broke them up and busted Talis on charges of assault and resisting arrest.

The website “We Are the Change” is claiming Lovetro was the one who attacked Talis and says Talis never raised a hand to anyone, but if the NY Post story is any indication, it looks like it’s Talis who was the aggressor. It wouldn’t be surprising, considering it’s been well documented how the far fringes of the left tend to get violent and aggressive when they think no one is buying their “message.”

Here’s one of the many fruit loopy things found on the home page of the We Are The Change website related to the incident:

Our proud member Gary, who was confronting Laura & Jenna Bush was threatened by an unknown individual. […]

Uh, why is it these nimrods think it’s acceptable to “confront” and yell at two people who did not make the decision to go to war with Iraq, nor issue warnings to Iran? Is there one functioning brain cell amongst these so-called “peaceful” groups?

In related news, the controversy surrounding the ad the Rev. Wright/Obama ad the NC GOP is preparing to run next week has boiled over to the point that apparently the state GOP office is under police protection. A reader sent me the following tip from fellow NC conservative Katy:

The state party is apparently receiving threats, as the Raleigh Police Department has been guarding NC GOP headquarters all day. The doors to the Hillsborough Street building are locked. After the firebombing of the same structure by anarchists a few years back, they’ve learned to expect the unexpected.

Katy also writes that contrary to media reports, the ad is *not* being pulled. Bravo! They still need help in keeping the ad on the air once it starts airing next week.
