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.

    that’s one way to drive your point home.

    Just looking at a few of the crazy Romney supporters. The 47%

    Pat Robertson yesterday “Marital Infidelity is acceptable, with our men in power…” Really, I missed that take during the Clinton Impeachment.

    Non voting (did not vote) Ice Cream store manager calling Obama a ******* and calling for an assassin to kill him.

    Nut job wife above.

    My NRA neighbors….did not vote.

    Most of the poor rural South voted for Romney.

    Don’t you get it. They are relying on the ignorant to line their pockets.

    Same way Apple does selling the same crappy computers and phones for double the price of another brands better stuff.

    Romney laid off his campaign staff and is moving to Liberal California. Ha, Ha, Ha. suckers.

      “Romney laid off his campaign staff and is moving to Liberal California. Ha, Ha, Ha. suckers.”

      Isn’t this a normal thing to do when you lose the election? He isn’t going to run again, no need for a campaign staff any more.

        Already seeing Mitt/Bachmann 2016 bumper stickers in AZ and NV.

      • JS says:

        Would have been nice if he had waited for his campaign staff to get home before cancelling their credit cards, though.

        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.)

          • MikeN says:

            Romney campaign was worse than that. Volunteers had to print out hundreds of pages from their own printers.

    • 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.

      • 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.

    This had nothing to do with the husband leaving the toilet seat up 1723 days in a row.

    • spsffan says:

      Lol. If he did that, it just proves he’s a man.

      But seriously, this woman needs to get a crash (pardon) course in the workings of the Electoral College. Maybe they teach that in jail. Heck maybe she’ll get lucky and wind up in Joe Arpaio’s jail 🙂

  7. spsffan says:

    Oh my God! I just realized that the picture above is the wife! I thought it was the husband. It sure looks more like a halfway good looking man than the ugly bitch it actually is.


  8. Duuuude says:

    I love the last line above:

    “Arizona’s 11 electoral votes were won by Romney.”

    She doesn’t even understand that the electoral vote would not have been affected by her now-wounded husband’s vote.

    Dumb on many levels

  9. Dallas says:

    I’m surprised this happened in Arizona. I thought honey boo-boo teapublicans only lived in the jungles of Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky.
    One can only extrapolate that brothers and sisters are frequently killing each other in these places and other married couples.

  10. Time to grow up says:

    The neener neener factor in here is just so childish.

  11. Somebody says:

    I could totally see it if he didn’t vote for Ron Paul.

  12. Moran says:

    Democrats and Republicans are stupid. Keep listening to the two-fucking-party propaganda you dumb asses.

  13. Captain Obvious says:

    The whole Patraeus scandal has gone bat shit crazy. FOX news is actually accurate for once.

  15. BigBoyBC says:

    Did I miss something in the article? Such as her political party affiliation. Why would any of you assume she could only be a Republican. Sounds like good ‘ol fashioned political bigotry, which is what one can expect from some of you…

    • Phydeau says:

      Those silly Democrats, in despair at their Democratic president re-elected!

  16. MartinJJ says:

    If it sounds to weird to be true, it usually isn’t. Maybe her husband was screwing some (Obama) girl or so instead? Who knows?

  17. Glenn E. says:

    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. As far as I know, the murder rate isn’t up. So a lot more drug abusers must be on trial. And I’ll bet wearing a button saying “free the weed”, gets you out of court. 🙂

  18. The0ne says:

    Hahaha I thought I knew how crazy some of these extreme Republicans were but I was wrong. I have a new boss that is just as batshit crazy as this woman over Obama winning. I can see why reason is so far up the pole that these people will never ever reach it, less see it.

    Now I understand a bit more seeing one in actual person. LMAO.

  19. SchwettyBalls says:

    I blame Obama.

  20. rr says:

    The medical bills her family will now have to pay will be a bigger hardship than anything Obama could have done. What an idiot.
