My oh my. I guess I should have gone to this East County Tea Party candidate event for Congressional GOP nominee David Harmer after all.

A blogger at wrote that a jealous husband of one of the event organizers lept onto the stage in Brentwood and put a choke hold on a man who inadvertently touched his wife’s rear. Check it out at

As an aside, we typically don’t cover candidate events where only one candidate or candidates of only one party will speak. There are many meet-the-candidate events and too few of us. More important, of course, they rarely produce actual news, the Brentwood alternation notwithstanding. There are coverage exceptions, of course, such as the local appearances of candidates for major offices such as U.S. Senate or governor.

    I am grateful that I have not been involved in an alternation since high school.

    What, no open-carry folks on hand to resolve the matter the Second Amendment way?
