(Newser) – Tom Barrett's concession to Scott Walker in the Wisconsin recall vote prompted a minor assault. A supporter smacked the Milwaukee mayor across the face after he made the call to Walker, USA Today reports; apparently she was angry he'd conceded while some voters were still trying to cast ballots. The woman asked permission to hit Barrett, according to a local reporter; he said "I'd rather you hug me." But video shows Barrett got no love.

apparently barrett didn't know that trying to explain something logically to a liberal is like trying to pick-up a pile of dog crap with a weedeater.

This place has become the pro bowler minor leagues of intellect. All jobless, morbidly obese and breathing through the mouth, still waiting for the invite to magic pants mitt's country club. Spoiler alert: You ain't one of them.
