Divided We Fall

I've learned to love America as only an expat can--a deep love for which arms length is sometimes required. Each day since the arguable election of our current president has been one for soul searching, searching the part of my soul that is American.

NEW YORK: A 62-year-old New York woman has filed a lawsuit against a 86-year-old paragon of political passion alleged to have hit her with a cane following a fight over George W. Bush election stickers, police said Tuesday. The suit alleges "harrassment" and says the 86-year-old former university professor "struck" the 62-year-old with her walking stick because she took the election stickers to the woman's posh New York building.

The run-in took place Sunday at the door of a building on Central Park West.
The alleged victim told reporters she was delivering the Bush stickers to a friend when the alleged presidential detractor suggested she "get out of here with that trash."

She tore up one sticker and then hit the younger woman on the behind with her cane. The alleged assailant told local media she had never struck her rival. "I didn't use my cane. We exchanged some words and pushed one another back and forth," the otagenarian said.
Partisan passion is running high. That's not always a bad thing. It's a time to be a paragon of political passion. But watch these little old ladies with canes!
