As I said, if this were The Messiah, folks like you wouldn't be so blase' about it.In the early evening of March 23, 1994, at a campaign rally in Lomas Taurinas, a poor neighborhood of Tijuana, Baja California, Colosio was shot in the head from a distance of a few centimeters in front of a person recording video nearby. There was no foreign press coverage of this campaign event in spite of it happening only a few miles south of San Diego, California. Colosio collapsed, and was subsequently rushed to the city's main hospital, after plans to fly him to an American hospital across the border were cancelled. His death was announced a few hours later; amid contradicting eyewitness reports that remain to this day.

Of course, if any of those other things were involved, I wouldn't find it funny.
Like I said before, it should be mandatory (as in, the law) that all political figures get hit in the face with a pie at least once per month.
Of course, you're allowed to control the situation so it's not impromptu, they can have their own bodyguards do it if they want.
It's not like some random person has to do it.

2) I still think no one would cause a fuss if it was done to Obama. They might call the perpitrator an idiot for trying it with the secret service around, but beyond that I don't think there would be much outrage.
Reality tends to have a liberal bias.
Actually know what else we learned from this story. President Bush has better dodging skills than Senator Levin. President Bush would totally have been able to get out of the way.
And I'm sure you condemned the kids who screamed down Ann Coulter in Canada right?
And where is your evidence that all tea baggers support what happened here?
BTW, not a single conservative (thats conservative) or anyone who has said positive things about the tea party has supported the pie throwing so you might want to rethink your sloppy generalization.

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
