“Over-exuberant supporter” throws book at Obama


Somebody in the front rows of the President Barack Obama “You can spend like crazy” tour threw the book at him, literally.

In video of the President, the book appears as little more than a blurr hurdling past his head to his left as he waved to the crowd on his right. It is not clear how close the book came to him but it is apparent the President does not notice it at all. The paperback seems to be coming from the direction of the audience penned in closest to the stage, not from the thousands of other spectators behind barricades farther back.

Since Obama didn’t even notice, I assumed it was a copy of the Constitution. “Hey, what’s that?’

The US Secret Service found and interviewed the man who threw the book onstage. He was deemed to be an “overexhuberant” supporter who wanted the President to have a copy of a book he had written, according the Special Agent Edwin Donovan of the Secret Service in Washington. “He was deemed not to be a threat and was not arrested,” Donovan told ABC News.

Anybody see Markos Moulitsas today?
