      I heard the problem was over foliage. Maybe RP trimmed momma's bush too close.

        I was thinking he was a Tennessee fan and Rand made a comment about Ole Smokey.

        Hell he could be an OSU fan, or FSU or .... ah .... a UF fan!

        He should be screaming loudly about lack of coverage.

        If Nancy had been assaulted, it'd be getting non-stop coverage.

        Most people I've talked to aren't aware a sitting US Senator was assaulted and hospitalized as a result.

          Too bad Paul wasn't that much of a rear end when he changed his mind and supported Mitch McConnell for re-election.

            Liberal goes crazy and on some sort of rampage. Most likely fired up by fake news CNN or MSNBC stories. Seems pretty ordinary and common these days.

              I️ totally agree. Sounds a lot like Petrinos motorcycle “accident”.

              Has the assailant been interviewed? Surely he would say it if that was his motivation.

              If Paul was banging the man's wife, surely the media will lift their embargo on the coverage of this.....

                https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/06/...roken-ribs-a-trivial-dispute-lawyer-says.html

                The attacker was a 59 year old anesthesiologist who has lived next door to Paul for 17 years. The attacker lived in his house alone so I am presuming he is divorced. Paul used to work at the same hospital as the attacker. As you know, Paul was an ophthalmologist. The anesthesiologist is a Democrat but according to the story the dispute was not about politics. To me it sounds like this was a long simmering dislike between the two men who hadn't spoken for years. What caused Paul's neighbor to snap is not entirely clear. The story says it could have been something trivial about yard work, but apparently the two just didn't like each other.

                  That is the only thing that makes sense. Why are not people throwing the book at the assaulter?

                  He has been arrested and charged. He will probably face Federal charges as well. What more do you expect?

                    He has been charged with a misdemeanor but they are considering raising it to a felony due to the seriousness of the attack. He's screwed.

                      If Paul was fvvvckng that guys wife, then maybe not. He should ask for a jury trial and make sure there are married men on the jury.

                        Then why no details about the conflict? They are all being hush-hush about what went down. If he is charged with a felony, Im sure he will be more talkative.

                        Even the liberal Today show offered details on this. Although the attacker was an avowed liberal and socialist, the story is that he had typical "neighbor" problems with Paul -- leaves blowing from one property to the other, trash along the property line, etc. It looks like the guy just snapped.

                        She probably left him.

                        Just reading between the lines. Two big shot doctors in the small city of Bowling Green, Kentucky. One goes on to be a United States senator who plays golf with Donald Trump. The other is retired at age 59 with no future. Lives alone. Could it be envy?
