Be clever about it, friend

Posted by: Hammer / 4:26 PM

I'm all for being outraged at Ann Coulter, but spouting unclever crudities at her makes it seem more rational than she is. Ba Ha Ha sends us this story:
Months after members of "Al Pieda" marred a campus speech by Ann Coulter, another appearance by the controversial conservative commentator has been disrupted by a protester. During a speech last night at the University of Texas in Austin, a 19-year-old UT student was busted after asking Coulter a lewd question, which he followed up with equally inappropriate hand gestures, according to the below police affidavit.
The actual question, per the police report, was "What do you think about conservative men that all they do with there [sic] wives is fuck them in the ass?"

That's just a dumb question. How about: If sodomy were criminalized, how old would you be before you were eligible for parole? Or, if sodomy were criminalized, would you still be able to date? Or, if I had a nickel for every act of sodomy you've engaged in, would I have enough money to pay you to shut up?

So, fine, it's not comedy gold, but it's the effort that counts. You think you can do better? That's what comments are for.

Yes, it was a dumb question, but it's my understanding the guy got arrested, or at least manhandled by the police, for asking it. That seems excessive.

Sunshine, how soon before you would be eligible for parole?

Now, do you want to use excessive force on me?

Disorderly conduct is a scam. Basically, anyone can be arrested for doing anything and it can be considered disorderly. In Wisconsin, the law says "Whoever, in a public or private place, engages in violent, abusive, indecent, profane, boisterous, unreasonably loud or otherwise disorderly conduct under circumstances in which the conduct tends to cause or provoke a disturbance is guilty of a Class B misdemeanor." That's pretty much anything.
My point -- and I do have one -- is not to defend the cops for the arrest, but to encourage peaceful protesters to be a bit better prepared.

He had condoms with him.

Have you seen this guy? (Picture here)
You'd have to have standards lower than that the Wall Street Journal editorial page to hook up Ajai.
