Code Pinky

Neil Cavuto predictably spins the story of the vicious liberal monster who bit off a heroic old man’s finger.

Unfortunately, eyewitness reports differ significantly from Mr. Rice’s account:

Next on the anti-reformer’s harassment list was a pro-reformer who appeared to be in his late 30s or early 40s, was stocky, and several inches shorter than the 65-year-old. Though Kuns isn’t sure how the pro-reformer ended up on the anti side of the street, she saw the two men face to face, exchanging words.

Then the anti-reformer in the orange shirt “punches him straight up in the face, right between the eyes.” The smaller pro-reformer’s glasses and hat flew off, and he fell into the street.

“I don’t know who started it wordwise,” Kuns said, “but I can tell you for sure that the guy who threw the first punch was the anti guy. And can he punch hard! He knocked this guy down into the street.”

The pro-reformer got up. The anti-reformer tried to block him from standing on the curb. A short scuffle ensued, and it was unclear to Kuns who was doing what to whom. The anti-reformers surrounding the fighting men stayed back. When the fight ended, the pro-reformer crossed the street and announced to the MoveOn rally that he’d bitten the man’s finger off.

And here’s an interesting tidbit:

The AP has since reported that a hospital spokeswoman said the anti-reformer lost half his finger, though doctors reattached it and sent him home last night. “She says he had Medicare,” the story states.

Okay, don’t hold back with the puns…

    I’ve got nothing.

    I’ve got nothing.

    Don’t worry, Ti-Guy, you’ll finger it out later.

  6. Actually, the finger wasn’t reattached. The Docs decided it wouldn’t work.

    Oh, and great quote from the guy who lost the finger?

    “I threw a 2nd punch, and my fist ended up in his mouth.”

    Umm, yeah.

  7. Hmmm… Interesting. Report from CNN starts about half way in.

    My pinkie, my pinkie, my kingdom for a pinkie but I guess he has that terrible Medicare a “Single-payer health care insurance” what a hypocrite. Did the little pinkie cry “Wee-wee-wee!” all the way home? It real should have been his right pinky finger that would have been a better story. They are haters not debaters.

  9. so, who’ll be the first wingnut to cite this as further proof of leftist aggression? they will, of course, ignore the fact that there’s pretty much only one way a finger can find its way into a mouth during a fight.

  10. Well, that’s what you get when you give someone the finger

  11. “I threw a 2nd punch, and my fist ended up in his mouth.”

    He should have stopped hitting my fist with his face!

  12. Paul

    He takes two punches and (as usual) tries to shove something down someone’s throat and gets his pinkie bitten off, now he plays victim. Now the wingnuts have a new idol to worship, a new hero. Please, snore, snore.

    All we have here is one side to the story, like many other immature men he just used physical violence because he was not able to articulate his position or use his brain to avoid one, never had the misfortune to be in a brawl myself, I only pity this man who felt the need to bunch his hand into someone’s mouth, so now all of you can claim he is something of a innocent victim. Walking away takes maturity some men have it others do not. What a pity.

  14. Paul

    He is trying to expand healthcare to everyone, so we do not have to pay the crazy prices for emergency room care, which all of us pay anyway. I agree with Montana, especially her pointing out that the old guy could have defused and controlled the situation by simply moving away but he seem very happy content with the attention and outcome. Could it be he wanted to be the new idol to be worship, a new hero whose poster will be going up in wingnuts closets around the country? Or it could be he just wanted others to claim he was a victim and be on TV (he was quick to run to “Fake News”).

  15. I have to thank you for the efforts you’ve put in writing this
    site. I really hope to see the same high-grade blog
    posts by you later on as well. In truth, your creative writing abilities has encouraged me to get my very own site now ;
