A lone paperback book was hurled at President Barack Obama as he finished up his speech during a Democratic rally in Philadelphia on Sunday. Although the book missed the President, and he seemingly failed to notice the literary attack, the offender was apprehended by the Secret Service but released after “he was deemed not to be a threat…,” according to Special Agent Edwin Donovan in Washington and just wanted the President to read his book.
Earlier in the rally the local police arrested 24 year-old Juan James Rodriguez for attempting to streak past the President. It is believed that the stunt was prompted by the website battlecam.com’s offer of a million dollars for such a stunt.
Blindie wants to know the name of the book that was hurled at the President and why a university student who asks questions during a John Kerry rally gets tasered and a hack-author can hurl a book at the President and all he gets is apprehended.
