When Palin Fans Attack

This is how worked up Sarah Palin’s fans get:

Jack B. Cheskaty, 62, of Grand Junction, said he pulled a handgun because “he wanted to be ready for anything” in what started as a verbal spat between drivers in bumper-to-bumper traffic leaving [a Palin Rally in] Lincoln Park around 8 p.m. Monday….

…A man behind the wheel of a Kia SUV attempted to inch in front of Cheskaty’s Chrysler, the affidavit said.

“If you want to get ahead of me you’ll have to deal with my insurance agency,” Cheskaty allegedly shouted.

The Kia’s driver reportedly replied, “I’ve got insurance too.”

The driver in the Kia alleged Cheskaty then displayed a handgun, “racked the slide” and held the weapon over the steering wheel, according to the affidavit.

A 14-year-old girl riding in the Kia noted, “Dad, he’s got a gun.”

Obviously, "I’ve got insurance too" is wingnut code for "LITTLE MAN, I WILL KILL YOU AND DRINK YOUR BLOOD," and only Mr. Cheskaty’s quick thinking and borderline insanity averted a terrible tragedy.
