When the Robin Carnahan campaign detected a guy standing in a parking lot holding a video camera, they knew this was their big chance to turn things around in the polls. And so they dispatched their secret weapon: crazy man Bill Skaggs.Here's the video:
After doing a half-jog strafing run at a guy standing alone in the middle of a parking lot, Skaggs made a strange garbling noise and told him "I'll knock the shit out of you boy", raising his fist up in glorious triumph. Apparently drunk on adrenaline, he flashes a giddy smile and goes inside to high five his buddies and crack open a Bud Light.
Later, Skaggs would tell a Kansas City blog that the guy was "confrontational" and that all he did was tell him to "get out of my face", apparently failing to recognize the irony in the statement or realize that attacking people who carry video cameras leaves behind video evidence.
Skaggs, still exhilarated, then told the Kansas City Star "I'd do the same to any bureaucrat acting that way." We decided to create a poster to commemorate the start of Skagg's awkward sort-of-but-not-really violent revolution:
Caption: Skaggs, taking a page out of the book of Che Guevara, commits to a revolution that involves running up at people, flexing his fist and hoping they don't break his hip.
Our take? We can say without a shadow of a doubt, if Bill Skaggs spent the rest of his entire life running around mock-charging people only to disappear just as quickly afterwards, the world would be a much more amusing place
