Holland told The Indianapolis Star he still questions whether it was Salinas in the car, and not Donnelly.

He also argued that he ended up being the driver that was chased. He discounted Salinas' statement that he was afraid, saying if the judge is worried about being attacked he shouldn't have a license plate that spells out his last name.

"I think that it was a set-up," Holland said.


This idiot followed someone for 16 miles, yet claims he was set-up.

He has a distinctive vanity plate and you STILL followed the wrong car for 16 miles?

Why in hell would he be following people around anyway?

So, is this retarded teabagger trash accusing this judge of lying?

That rarely ends well.

THE ASSIGNMENT WAS TO REVEAL HOW THE "PARTY OF THE POOR" IS ACTUALLY LED BY RICH PEOPLE, IN NICE CARS, IN RICH NEIGHBORHOODS. THE PHOTOS WERE TO BE USED FOR TV POLITICAL CAMPAIGN ADVERTISEMENTS.

Fark you guys. Seriously. Go take a flying fark at a rolling doughnut, you pieces of shiat.

Poor people can't be in politics. They are too busy working to keep the lights on and food in the fridge. Of course freaking rich people run everything. It's just asking yourself whether you want more personal freedoms or more Jesus and more policies to benefit the public or the elite.

Wealthy Democrats helping the poor are a whole lot better than wealthy Republicans gaming the system to help only themselves.

Sure you want run with this whole "ZOMG!! Deeermercrates are rich peeple too also!!!"

Seriously, Teabaggers? This is your angle?

They ain't too bright. They call themselves "teabaggers" for cryin' out loud.

Couldn't vote for Lugar. And I'm certainly not voting for this guy. And Donnely has been invisible. Great choices. Looks like I'm abstaining.

To get them on film saying stupid shiat.

Dems don't have to do this, because Republicans hold press conferences to say stupid.

2012-08-02 08:30:11 PM  
So, after reading the article, the tracker couldn't even summon up an apology?

"Hey, sorry I frightened you. I honestly thought I was following someone else. My bad"

Are republicans incapable of admitting to mistakes? Even simple ones?

"NO, I meant to put orange juice in my cereal....I was never distracted!!"

And just what they hell was he doing trying to follow someone??

Ya, I know...too many questions. My bad.

2012-08-02 08:35:59 PM  

you are a puppet: Every element of this is amazing.


Like the fact that he was following someone was ridiculous to begin with. For 16 miles? Now it's just crazy. And it's the wrong guy. In fact, this guy is a different race. And he's a judge...and he has HIS NAME ON HIS LICENSE PLATE. This is a huge failure. But now...you claim that the fact that these guys looked alike to you, and only to you, and that one of them has his name on his license plate, and has for years, is part of a huge setup, targeting you, the man they knew would follow one of them home, for 16 miles.

Maybe this judge is the same guy who put Obama's birth announcement in the newspaper.
 
2012-08-02 08:37:04 PM  
So, the judge had a custom vanity plate and the teatard STILL followed him. Was the thought process: "Oh, that man is good. I was sent to follow a black Honda civic and this is a blue Toyota corolla. He even got a vanity plate that is different from the one that I was told to look for. Clever indeed."?

What's your problem? The GOP video tracker was Standing His Ground.
 
2012-08-02 08:41:58 PM  
Even if he did follow the right person, how the hell did the campaign not think this was going to look very creepy.
 
2012-08-02 08:42:58 PM  
That's a shame. If one person votes for Richard Mourdock after hearing this, they deserve whatever they get. Oh wait, I am sure that Richard Mourdock will claim ignorance and his supporters will lap it up. Hope his lackey has money for a good lawyer. He is going to get disowned.

gimmegimme: What's your problem? The GOP video tracker was Standing His Ground.


I was actually thinking the judge could have pulled over, gotten out with a gun and approached the car. If the tracker had tried to pull away the judge could have shot him and then claimed he thought he was going to be run over.

In Florida, he'd get away with it.

Yeah, what a bunch of bullshiat, this guy should get sued for his incompetence...

I think it's garbage that these people stalk their opponents anyway, way too much bullshiat in ANY political race, bunch of immature babies.
 
2012-08-02 08:49:13 PM  
Oh, he was following the wrong person? That's ok. Feel free to start following the guy you intended to follow.

Nothing strange or creepy about having a job where you follow political opponents hoping to catch them picking their nose, or parking too far from the curb.

[pixti.me image 700x528]


That's got to be the stupidest statistic ever.

1. A fridge is necessary to keep food from spoiling. You get better prices when you don't buy your food 1 meal at a time, so a fridge is pretty much a requirement for living nowadays. This isn't the era when they could go out and slaughter a hog and pick some veggies for dinner.

2. Most rentals come with a fridge provided by the landlord.

3. You can get a used fridge nowadays for as little as $20 on CL. Hell, a few years ago I got the fridge we use for drinks for free from my neighbors. Only issue is that it doesn't drain right when it goes through its defrost cycle, and I need a bowl to catch the water. Otherwise perfect. And free. Did I mention it was free? Even a poor household can afford free.

Jesus, these GOP talking points get stupider and stupider, don't they?

Remember who you're dealing with: the same short bus morons who lap up those stupid statistics also followed a GOP judge for 16 miles with frakking vanity plates with the guy's last name on them thinking it was a Democratic opponent so they could get footage of...something.

These people truly are the common clay of the new west.

Generally trackers should only be filming candidates at events.

You might all remember in 2004 how a Republican campaign tracker followed a little known Democratic Illinois state senator into the bathroom.

This is the party that has out-organized Indiana Democrats for the past few decades. Since Lugar was a mayor, actually.

This is what your party has turned into, Republicans. This. You've turned into this. All of your policy positions are extensions of this basic failure of acting a human being.
