This just in to the CNN Newsroom! CNN's Don Lemon got roughed up by a couple of blonde Tea Party bimbos in Iowa yesterday while he was trying to ask Rep. Michele Bachmann some questions. And then someone pushed him into a golf cart and people started spilling stuff. Oh, the humanity!
If this is the worst thing that ever happens to him in his career, then he'll be just fine.
It does seem, however, that this sort of anti-press hostility occurs more with Tea Party Republicans than with Democrats.
But, it also appears that Lemon has never been in the middle of a full-fledged, balls-to-the-wall media cluster-fuck.
Note to Don Lemon: Reporters and photographers have been dealing this for eons.
Stop whining. And next time you find yourself in the middle of one of these situations, don't chastise people for "being rude" and complain about "spilling stuff." Unless, of course, you want to come off sounding like a candy ass.
And Don; in case you're wondering what it's really like to get roughed up, here's the classic clip of Dan Rather at the 1968 Democratic Convention.
