Protesting political figures is acceptable behavior.

Pelting them is not:

White House Advisor Karl Rove was the target of a protest on the American University campus Tuesday night, NBC 4 reported.

Rove was on the campus to talk to the College Republicans, but when he got outside more than a dozen students began throwing things at him and at his car, an American University spokesperson said.

I'm rather disappointed by the antics of these children, who followed up this part of their tantrum by lying down in front of Rove's car until security bodily removed them. No one was arrested in the incident. It is uncertain if any might have been given a "time-out" by campus police.

Update: I'm closing the comments on this thread, as liberals coming in from Salon's Blog Report have made several comments wishing far worse treatment to the body of Karl Rove (roasting on a spit in one example; prayers that he would be lynched in two others. And yes, I have screen caps and IP addresses).

I've got better things to do with my morning than watch liberals issue empty frothing threats that justify the contempt so many people have for them.

They are probably in school under Govt. Grants.

Rove is double plus ungood.
