THEY TOLD ME IF I VOTED FOR JOHN MCCAIN, thugs would drag screaming journalists away from Air Force one. And they were right! Kicking & Screaming: Journo Dragged From Near AF1. “A reporter for a small newspaper was forcibly removed from a press area near Air Force One shortly before President Barack Obama arrived at Los Angeles International Airport to depart California early Thursday.”
UPDATE: Reader Paul Harper writes: “A self-described ‘Roman Catholic priestess’ has no business anywhere near Air Force One, much less POTUS. The Secret Service did right and seem to have been extremely professional, as we’d expect. Her second career as a blogger/reporter is irrelevant.” Several other readers agree, but that doesn’t spoil the joke. And look at the photo of a black woman being dragged off by Secret Service agents with Air Force One in the background and think about how it would have been played under the Bush Administration . . . .
