Bad for the Campaign

From: Mike G.

As I'm sure most already know, that incident where some Ron Paul supporters chased and cursed at Sean Hannity and his staff has made us all look very bad and has reinforced the picture painted of us by the neo-cons.  When I saw the video of the incident last night, I was embarrassed.  I understand that the people who did this were only a small part of the whole group of Ron Paul supporters who were there, but it only takes a few bad apples to make the whole barrel look suspect.
There seems to be a small minority of Ron Paul supporters who are going around doing idiotic, low-class things like this, and, since they often get local or major media atention when they do these things, they're making the whole campaign look bad. 
I just wonder what those folks thought they would accomplish by chasing Hannity and his staff, cursing at them, and throwing snowballs at them.  Hannity talked about the incident on his radio program yesterday afternoon and then on his TV show last night.  The conservative message boards were filled with condemnations of all Ron Paul backers over this display of bad conduct, and about the only thing we can in response is that the people who did this were a small minority of the Ron Paul people who were there.
