Man In Department Store Hits Mother of Two Wearing Obama Button.
This is an email I received today from my friend E about an experience she and her young son, Ben had. They live in Missouri, a swing state... pun intended.
"Ann, after signing the petition you emailed out yesterday Ben and I went to Cabela's to hang out for the day. I was wearing my YES WE CAN button. At guest services on the way out Ben and I stopped to pick up a catalog. While at Cabela's I broke down and bought a soda for the both of us to share...root beer. Ben's first! Anyway, Ben asks me if he can have a drink and I said yes. Not a nanosecond later this elderly man HITS me and starts yelling 'No! NO he can't!' I am already feeling guilty about giving my kid soda, but really? I need to be HIT for it? So the man continues yelling at me and I now can tell he's pointing to my button. He SHOUTS that I am a communist and that if I vote for Obama I would be giving my money to the poor and the only way I would ever consider voting for him is if I was on welfare. Then he leans in close and asks 'are you on welfare?' Seriously????? He told me if I did my reading I would throw away my button! I calmly told him there was no way I would do that."
