Ned attempts to talk with a 90-year-old WWII veteran pilot from Virginia who wanted to discuss his opposition to the Iraq war. The Lieberman kids scream accusations about Ned's patriotism, spewing right-wing bile accusing him of not caring about our troops, and questioning whether he would (not verbatim) "let our citizens die again," assumedly a reference to 9/11.
One reporter goes up and tries to ask some of these kids whether they are volunteers or paid staffers for the Lieberman campaign. The kid screams in response, "Let me see your credentials!" The reporter produces said credentials. The kid replies "those are fake." None of the 15-20 Lieberman kids there would admit to being paid staffers. Nor would they tell the reporters their names, or any other personal information.
The reporters were, to a person, understandably horrified at the spectacle.

Tim asks this, but let me amplify it: Why can't I read about this in the newspaper this morning? Reporters were there; one got a bloody nose. So where are the stories?
Or did I just miss them in my rush to get ready for work? If anyone finds stories about this anywhere, post them in the comments...
