Posted on 10/20/2008 3:40:00 PM PDT by chessplayer
(Sunday, October 19 - Filed by Mark Williams in Raton, New Mexico with the Stop Obama Tour) We learned at this mornings Stop Obama Rally here that the McCain/Palin Straight Talk Express came through town yesterday. It arrived with a window shattered by a .22 caliber weapon. It had also been hit by an unknown number of paint balls from a paint ball gun or guns. There were reportedly no injuries and neither candidate was on board.

Air rifle possibly.
Story reads as confusing or i`m just sleepy.
Was it a McCain/Palin bus or some other Stop Obama bus ?
Raton city police (575) 445-2704
Colfax County sheriff dept (575) 445-5561
NM State police in Raton (575) 445-5571
I think this has been posted three times today, however, Absolutely no reporting of this anywhere in NM, even from the Roswell paper that has endorsed McCain.
FACT: Air rifles can be lethal, some have very impressive ballistics.
But that said it could have been children shooting up the bus. Some of the DU and Netroots truly act and apparently think like children. (ie. David Kernell)
And some children can be dangerous.
If it comes down to it, we have 286,000,000 guns and 10,000,000,000 rounds of ammo. They have paintballs.
There was another thread on this earlier today. It happened, but neither candidate was on the bus when it happened.
If this is so exclusive, why does it keep getting posted?
From the Weekly Standard:
The blog item below was posted by Mark Williams, former talk-radio host turned spokesman for Our Country Deserves Better PAC, a group committed to working against an Obama quest for the presidency. He has been on the group’s Stop Obama tour, which arrived in Raton about a day after a McCain/Palin bus came through, he said. Williams said he heard the story from several residents of Raton, who said the bus had a shattered window when it arrived in town, and that it had been shattered by some kind of shot during its trip up from southern New Mexico, but he never saw the bus.
A Raton Police spokesperson, who said he’s been on his phone all day long with reporters, said if the incident happened, it happened far south of Raton. Several calls to offices south, such as Chavez County Sheriff’s Department and the Roswell Police, however, turned up nothing. Looks like this one is firmly in the debunked rumor pile for now, and not likely to move anytime soon.
The hard left = “dangerous children”.
That number seems a bit low. Time for everyone to go stock up!
wonder if the FBI / SS would be interested in this lady’s post from that source link:
“Wow! Too bad they missed!!!! Now you might know how it feels to have your candidate singled out by rabid followers. Christians, my (expletive deleted).
