I haven't written yet about Jeb Bush's nightmare trip to the Steel City, but since I obtained this great piece of visual evidence (via Doomed Generation), I could ignore it no longer.

Though the protesters were peaceful -- if a bit boisterous -- and Bush was being protected by FDLE agents, Pittsburgh's finest decided to STUN GUN a couple of protesters who wouldn't leave the area. Why this hasn't gotten more attention in Florida, I don't know, but it's good'un.
