No Need for Michael Buffer

I’ve seen the film. And as a lifetime fan of the sweet science, I can tell you that was no punch. More of a slap. But unfriendly enough. There’s no audio on the film, so you can’t tell if the slap was provoked or not.

The slapper has been identified by the slapee as Marco Rubio campaign aide Rich Beeson. John Yob, on the receiving end of the slap, is a campaign aide to Rand Paul. The incident took place in a Mackinac Island, Michigan saloon before a Republican séance (aka a leadership conference) where scores of political types were gathering. Yob has tried to make a great deal out of not much, calling in the Mackinac Island police and calling on the Rubio campaign to fire Beeson. Outside of Yob, neither campaign has had much to say about the incident.

Of course folks who just want to loosen up a bit at a local watering hole shouldn’t have to endure even inconsequential slaps. But if this is the worst Yob has to endure, he won’t have to hire a cut man. I’m sure the Avon Lady, given the chance to set her feet, could hit harder than what I saw on this clip. 

While we’re on boxing, allow me to shift to an arena where the punches and/or slaps were all verbal. As an un-appointed Judge, I awarded Carly Fiorina two 10-8 rounds in Wednesday night’s Republican food fight. The first was on, “I think women all over this country heard very clearly what Mr. Trump said.” A clear one-punch knockdown. Trump was up at eight with a lame response. But she had clearly tagged him.

The second 10-8 round was in her invitation to Democrats and their horse-holders the left-stream media to view the grizzly film of Planned Parenthood, Frankenstein Division, in action and justify what they see. My only lament here is that she didn’t say “a fully-formed infant,” rather than “a fully-formed fetus.” Lefties seem to think if they say fetus no one will realize they are talking about a human baby person with rights we must respect and an immortal soul.

If Beeson wants to learn to punch, he should study Carly Fiorina. And won’t it be pleasing to see how unpleased lefties are if we have our first woman president in 2017. And it’s not Mz. Hillary.
