"Groups with guitars are on the way out, Mr. Epstein"
Dick Rowe, A & R man
The nut throwers were either a couple of nuts themselves in a crowd of thousands or they were plants to give the liberal media the opportunity to say " There are tensions just below the surface at the Republican convention." Chicago thug tactics on display.
A couple of nuts out of thousands, yes. Plants? Please...some of you guys will believe any crazy conspiracy...Maybe they were plants of the Kenyan government who used the CIA's time machine to make their escape. Yeah, that's way more possible than the theory that maybe a couple of Republicans are assholes.
My understanding of what happened was this: One jerk threw nuts. Possibly motivated by race, possibly motivated by hatred of the "Lamestream" media. He got kicked out. Let's not blow this too far out of proportion. It doesn't need to be "the Liberal Satan" planting people to make Republicans look bad. Frankly, I don't think it made the Republicans look bad at all. They kicked him out, which was an appropriate response to the situation.
