RUSH: Have you seen, ladies and gentlemen, the story about the boyfriend and girlfriend who stabbed each other over what happened on American Idol? I am holding here in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers a story from Gawker.
“An argument between a Pennsylvania couple over which American Idol finalist deserved to win the contest escalated quickly, resulting in a knife fight that left the pair bloodied and behind bars. 48-year-old Karen Elaine Harrelson and 57-year-old Gregory Stambaugh were hanging out in the basement of Stambaugh’s West Manchester Township home last week, watching the American Idol season finale and drinking beers. … According to Stambaugh, it was Harrelson who produced the first knife, stabbing him in the left forearm. He claims she was accidentally wounded during a subsequent struggle for the weapon. … Though they were found by police on their porch with their clothes covered in blood, neither had sustained a serious injury.”
Their pictures, their mug shots are posted here. Boyfriend and girlfriend in a knife fight over American Idol. I mean, what we have here, folks, is the epitome of low-information voters. You should see these mug shots. In fact, you know what I’m going to do? I’m going to show them to you on the Dittocam. I’ll take a break here and I’ll set it up. It’s always good talk about low-information voters, it’s good to be able to put a face or faces to such human categories.
RUSH: Okay, here we go, gonna turn on the Dittocam now and I’m gonna hold this picture up. These are the two people in Pennsylvania that got into a knife fight during the finale of American Idol. These are their mug shots, and this is it, folks, I mean, if you’ve ever wondered what low-information voters look like, that’s it. That speaks for itself. I’m sorry those of you listening and don’t have access to the Dittocam can’t see it. We’ll post it at RushLimbaugh.com.
RUSH: Okay. So we had the two low-information voters engage in a knife fight in Pennsylvania during the finale of American Idol, and we showed you their mug shots.
“A North Carolina mother had her son arrested this week for taking her Pop-Tarts without permission. The child was busted on a larceny charge, according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, whose officers were summoned Monday night to a Charlotte home by Latasha Renee Love, the accused juvenileÂ’s 37-year-old mother. A police report notes that ‘the known suspect stole Pop-tarts belonging to his mother at their home at 530 Goldstaff Ln. The suspect was juvenile arrested at the time of the offence.’ Cops described the stolen goods as ‘Foodstuffs’ valued at $5.”
The cops were called in Charlotte, North Carolina, for a five-dollar theft of Pop Tarts by a mother on her son. Low-information voters, no doubt. Can’t spank ’em, but you can call the cops. A 37-year-old mother — again, the name here is Latasha Renee Love — reportedly has had discipline issues with the child, apparently said decided to have him arrested as some kind of a lesson.
By the way, there’s a mug shot picture of her here after a September 2009 drunk driving arrest. The misdemeanor case against the kid will be handled in juvenile court.
