Brave Democrats rough up 3-year-old girl at rally

Al Gore once spouted off about W's "digital brownshirts". Well, it looks to me like the Dems have their own analog version, and they were on display in Huntington, West Virginia the other day. The big, bad Democrats seized the little Bush-Cheney sign that 3-year-old Sophia Parlock was holding, reducing her to tears. Said Mr. Parlock: "She was crying; they were pushing and shoving her," said Mr. Parlock, a Huntington real estate agent. "She was scared." (Washington Times story)

Okay... probably not the smartest thing in the world to bring your 3-year-old to a political protest, but it is enormously stupid to rough up a 3-year-old, especially when AP has photographers around.

If this story gets any significant play outside the blogosphere, it is going to hurt Kerry's already flagging poll numbers.
