Beta-Male Throws Tomatoes at Palin, Hits Cop Instead

What kind of outcome did this loser expect?

A man was arrested for throwing tomatoes at Sarah Palin during her book signing on Monday at the Mall of America.

Jeremy Olson, 33, allegedly threw two tomatoes from the second balcony, however did not come close to hitting Palin.

Bloomington Police report that Bloomington Commander Mark Stehlik was struck in the face with one of the tomatoes and may face charges for assaulting a police officer. Olson was booked at the Bloomington jail. He was arrested for suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct.

Even as a best-case scenario, this guy hits Palin with some produce and still ends up in jail. Not a very bright guy.

I'll be very interested to discover if Olsen's attack had political motivations, or if he was just some nut looking for a few moments of infamy.

I truly think the Left doesn't quite "get" that the concept of civil disobedience actually includes paying the penalty for the laws broken.

he's both,

a nut and a left wing political activist.

not only are the two not mutually exclusive, but for the most part go hand in hand.

Has the "liberal" blogosphere lionized him yet?
