Fiscal assessment leads to violence

Mr. Jacobs said Mr. Gianforte became agitated when asked about the Congressional Budget Office’s new fiscal assessment of the legislation that House Republicans have passed to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
“I’m sick and tired of you guys!” Mr. Gianforte can be heard saying on the recording shortly after the sounds of a physical struggle and a crash. “The last time you came here you did the same thing. Get the hell out of here. Get the hell out of here.”
Mr. Jacobs responded: “You just body-slammed me and broke my glasses.”
After the incident, Mr. Jacobs had journalism on his mind during a telephone interview from the Bozeman hospital where he was getting an X-ray on his elbow.
“Wait till my piece goes up,” he asked before getting off the phone. “Don’t scoop me on this.”

“The tweets make it much more difficult for us as we try to build a case against these leakers,” said Representative Peter T. King, a New York Republican who sits on the Intelligence Committee. “We always have to be answering questions about the tweets — it puts us on defense all the time when we could be building a case for the president.” - NYT

Occupy Cocktail?

A lot of people have been wondering, why the studied silence from Toxic Cocktail, with all this Occupy Wall Street stuff going on around the world? Is it a massive media conspiracy? Well, no, it's not that. It's just that after much thought, I can't deny that the official beverage of Occupy is beer. It's the drink of the people. It's the drink that can double as a meal. And it's the drink that doesn't totally screw up your commitment to peaceful protest.
