‘Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one.”
Scottish Journalist (1814-1889)
This observation after the recent “storming” of the House Judicial Impeachment Inquiry hearings by a pack of Republican lawmakers who feigned injustice because of the closed nature of the proceedings.
I was in Miami when a near-riot broke out at the Miami-Dade County Courthouse when they were counting the Bush-Gore ballots. A pack of young republicans, bused in and well-organized by the GOP–they even had t shirts and “sore loserman” crying towels as well as handing the media cuban sandwiches… they decided to storm the bastille too for all the wrong reasons. This is a clip from the movie :recount” and it is DEAD ON with what I witnessed the day I walked into the Miami Dade Courthouse ..in fact that was the first day of a 6 week oddessy covering Indecision 2000!!! The mob mentality was scary to say the least..cuban sandwiches aside of course!
