What press the protesters do get out of it will just help Udall moderate his image in the end. Since he's been happily dosey-do'ing with Marilyn Musgrave on occasion, I'm sure he won't mind getting shouted at by the Angry Left.
When contacted (about what kind of sentence Caroline Bninski should get), Udall refused to indicate that a 30 or 60 day jail sentence was inappropriate. 30 or 60 days for PEACEFUL protest!
Has anyone stopped to think that the first comment identifies a clear motive for the strange behavior of Congressman Udall's staff in this very strange matter? If Udall wanted to make the Angry Left even angrier, getting a leader thrown in the slammer for a year is almost as good as throwing her under a bus and a lot more deniable.
