Here at spinline.net: The Blog, we strive not only to bring you entertainment, amusement, and thought-provoking commentary, but also to provide important news exclusives.
For example, earlier tonight I went to an American Cause event where Tom Tancredo spoke, and several newsworthy things were said that I will now share.
(I know it’s uncool to say mean things about the iPhone, but the iPhone camera sucks, as you can see here.)
First, Tancredo spoke about his recent UNC speech that was shut down by violent protesters. He remarked that he was relieved that nobody was injured save one — himself: a cop who was escorting Tancredo out of the melee stepped on his foot, breaking his toe. OK, that was exclusive #1. Pretty good, huh?
Second, after the talk a questioner spoke of his belief that the famously corrupt (and currently imprisoned) congressman James Traficant was railroaded or framed because of his unyielding populism or something like that. Tancredo replied that he basically believes Traficant “did it” but then, reminiscing about what a character he was, he recalled how Traficant, being a tall guy, would on occassion grab (short guy) Tancredo’s head in the halls of Congress and give him a noogie. That’s exclusive #2. Rep. Traficant (D-Ohio) gave Rep. Tancredo (R-Colo.) noogies.
Oh, and I also met Bay Buchanan, who seems like a very nice person. That is all.
