No truth to rumor Governor Brewer forms defense fund for Holly

An Arizona woman, in despair at the re-election of Democratic President Barack Obama, ran down her husband with the family car in suburban Phoenix on Saturday because he failed to vote in the election…

Holly Solomon, 28, was arrested after running over husband Daniel Solomon following a wild chase that left him pinned underneath the vehicle.

Daniel Solomon, 36, was in critical condition at a local hospital, but is expected to survive, Gilbert police spokesman Sergeant Jesse Sanger said.

Police said Daniel Solomon told them his wife became angry over his “lack of voter participation” in last Tuesday’s presidential election and believed her family would face hardship as a result of Obama winning another term.

Witnesses reported the argument broke out on Saturday morning in a parking lot and escalated. Mrs Solomon then chased her husband around the lot with the car, yelling at him as he tried to hide behind a light pole, police said. He was struck after attempting to flee to a nearby street.

Arizona’s 11 electoral votes were won by Romney.

Those wacky freedom-loving Arizona Republicans…take their civic responsibilities seriously.

    Now seriously. This is obviously a disturbed woman. I know from personal experience that some people live on the edge of reality and schizophrenia. They strive to hold it together. But when something in the real world supports their delusion they act. This is when we hear about it. This poor woman was probably barely holding it together but was lead to believe that a Republican loss would lead to Armageddon. The facts presented by FUX news supported her belief and she acted.

    • Grandpa says:

      You say she is disturbed. I say she is a good Republican. Notice the channel they show the picture on? She is exactly what the Republican Tea Party is looking for.

      I wonder if she works at Wal-Mart.

        She definitely typifies the republican mindset, irrational and unstable!

        • Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

          You should leave the commentary for others, thinking isn’t your forte.

          She wasn’t irrational, she had a rational reason…he didn’t vote and Obama won.

          And if she typified the “republican mindset”, why didn’t we hear of 3 million cases of runover….that’s how many Republicans didn’t vote.

          As for unstable, seem like she stood her ground with great stability.

          As “noname” implies, you have nothing.

          • So what says:

            “She wasn’t irrational, she had a rational reason…he didn’t vote and Obama won.

            That you understand her reason and tactility agree with it shows you both to be highly unstable.

            Please leave the thinking to those who know how, and your not it as your commentary shows.

            Did you miss the piece about Arizona’s electoral votes going to Romney? That he didn’t vote made absolutely no difference in the outcome in AZ and thus wouldn’t have affected the results in the slightest. Obama would have won whether he voted or not and regardless of for whom he voted.

          • Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

            Thomas: Did you miss the piece about Arizona’s electoral votes going to Romney? That he didn’t vote made absolutely no difference in the outcome in AZ and thus wouldn’t have affected the results in the slightest.

            Not a material objection as the article states it was his “lack of voter participation” that angered her—not Obama’s re-election per se.

            An analogy: A woman’s husband fails to come to the aid of the dying. The fact they would have died regardless whether he helped or not, might not affect her attitude he should have tried to do something.

            Therefore she remains ration, noname unthinking. He really should leave the heavy lifting for others….

            Rumor is he lost his mind years ago, when a butterfly kicked him in the head.

          • Thomas says:

            When you are running over people for not voting, you are most definitely not rational. When you “despair at the re-election of” a candidate in today’s environment of Republicans and Democrats equating to MasterCard and Visa, you are also not rational. Upset? Sure. Despair? Really? Seriously? No that is not rational.

          • Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

            Equivocation…I only said she had a reason for her actions = rational, not crazy.

            While I joked “where’s the crime”, it was a joke.

            I only defended her has having a reason for running him over, not that I agreed with running him over.

            She is “irrational” in the sense of “crazy” in your argument, but that wasn’t how I was using the word “rational.”

            I made no reference to the propriety of her action, whether he deserved getting run over for not voting. We both agree he didn’t deserve that.

            Unless he’s one of the pervert progressives posting here at DU, of course.

        Along the same line, it would be nice if the Secret Service didn’t bug out as soon as he had conceded – maybe stay on for another day or so just in case the preliminary numbers were out of whack – Gore conceded then backed off that concession due to Florida…

        • US says:

          If you work for a campaign you should realize your job ends on election Tuesday. Any longer than that is a bonus, be ready to be unemployed Wednesday morning.

          • JS says:

            I agree wholeheartedly that their jobs ended after the election was lost. However, the cards were cancelled before they had a chance to pay for the cab ride home from the event they were supposed to be at.

            All I am saying is that the campaign should have had the courtesy of paying for the worker’s transportation home from the event, just as they paid for transportation to it. (I’d be kind of pissed at my boss if he paid for my transportation to a client site, then cancelled transportation home from it.)

    • Thorn says:

      I am not sure I get what you are trying to say here. Are they crazy BECAUSE they are Romney supporters or are they simply crazy AND Romney supporters? Are there not some crazy Obama supporters?

      I do have to take issue with you equating the rural south to poor and ignorant. I have lived in the rural south most of my life. The people here generally have wonderfully rich family and social lives. They generally are proud and independently minded. As such they tend to dislike outside interference (or what they see as outside interference). In the south Obama is generally seen as representing big and invasive government. Thus they voted against him. The voters here are as well informed as in any other part of the country.

      Your conclusions that “poor, ignorant” southerners are being duped into voting against Obama is nothing more than the arrogant, bigoted “liberal” elitism that southerners reject.

      • Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

        I agree. Get used to it on DU, they slander anyone not elitist freeloading progressive who wonders “is it wrong for a man to love another man.”

        That is THE pressing issue with Progressives, that and free condoms.

        And they call others ignorant and crazy.

            That’s much better than being stuck for an answer.

      • Phydeau says:

        I can understand and appreciate your viewpoint, Thorn. No one likes “outside interference.” Unfortunately, your rural southern neighbors have a record of supporting things like slavery, then the denial of rights (including voting rights) of black people, keeping women as second class citizens, teaching religion as science, etc.

        In a conflict between national laws/beliefs and rural local beliefs, sometimes local beliefs get overruled. If you don’t like that, pretty much your only option is to form your own nation. Last time you tried that, it didn’t work out so good for you. Oh well. As was discussed in another thread, many of us are willing to let you go, since your red states are basically a drain on the national treasury (all the while bleating about “big and invasive government”. Ironic, that.)

        Although racist, sexist nations are not so much in vogue now. You might run into some international condemnation. Just a heads up.

          I’ll second that. Amusing/ironic that the VERY DEFENSE thorn offers is actually what makes the South Red Neck and backwards.

          I’m on the verge of losing an older family friend as he is a GOP ((Grumpy Old People)). He is a flat out DittoHead who refuses to acknowledge the source of his “information” and the legitimacy of the label.

          Currently he is upset because he has to pay a new WildLands Fire Protection tax. State Imposed but he blames socialist Obama.

          He is upset that Obama like a Marxist wants to raise his taxes. Fact that Obama has not done that in 4 years does not phase him as my friend knows he still wants to.

          Healthcare costs are going up: Blame Obama. The arthritis in his knee is flaming up…. you know the cause.

            I remember Obama’s first week in office, all my GOP friends were calling him the worst president ever. He hadn’t even warmed up the lazy-boy in the oval office and his presidency was declared a failure. Geez, it hadn’t been a week since the real holder of that trophy moved back to his trailer park in Texas.

      I agree, the absence of party affiliation in the propaganda press indicates its a Democrat who sinned.

      Whenever a Democrat sins, politician or not…their party affiliation is never mentioned.

      Whenever a Republican commits the same sin, their party id is prominent in the article, often right under the picture.

          It sucked under Bush’s overheated economy where lots of people could afford cars…and finding drivers for my vehicles was hard…everyone had the jobs they wanted.

          Now I get college grads, entrepreneurs, solid family men, union guys out of work…even lots of small buisnessment like myself. The quality of my drivers has never been better.

          Obama didn’t run as a wrecking ball of capitalism…he first ran as a moderate, who would go line by line and cut wasteful Government spending, and the deficit. Who would spread money around so businesses would do better.

          He never said anything about a deluge of regulations putting small businesses, or their creation, out of business.

          And there are lots of “Blue Dog Democrats” who feel betrayed when the radicals of the party took over, and tossed them out…even though they supported Obama…

    As if one man’s vote would have made any difference. Sounds to me that the parties have oversold or over-exploited the expectations of the voters. In my state, I believe the voter turn out was 80%. Of course my state voted for Obama. So even if the other 20% had voted too. It’s highly unlikely it would have changed anything. Because it wasn’t all 20% Republicans who didn’t vote here.

    And BTW, my State still complaints that not enough people are registered voters, to fill the jury rosters. So just having a driver’s license gets you jury duty, every two years.
