candidate’s handi-handcuffs

When you want to go forward, you put it in ‘D’. When you want to go back, you put it in ‘R’.  —President Obama

Joe Miller, candidate for US Senate, held a town hall meeting at a middle school in Anchorage. When asked about illegal immigration, Miller offered up: Build a wall! “If the East Germans could do it, so can we!”

And gee whiz: Miller’s private security guards handcuffed and detained a local magazine editor ‘for asking Alaskan senator candidate questions’. Alarmed Brits have published this arrogance in the Daily Mail.

Why did Miller’s guards strong arm the reporter into handcuffs? Miller announced he would no longer be taking questions about his past:

‘We’ve drawn a line in the sand. You can ask me about background, you can ask me about personal issues, I’m not going to answer them. I’m not.’
