The Idiot Glitter-Bombers Are Up Against the Secret Service Now

And I'm guessing they're not going to have much of a sense of humor about this kind of stuff:
A man was rushed out of Mitt Romney's speech in Colorado tonight by Secret Service agents. Gov. Romney's was shaking hands with the crowd who had gathered to hear his speech when the Secret Service quickly moved him away from a man who they appeared to view as a threat. They then grabbed the man and swiftly rushed him out of the room.

UPDATE: Officials report the suspect attempted to throw glitter on Gov. Romney.
With Santorum's rise yesterday they're going to need to start protecting him too, and maybe this will put a stop to some of the glitter silliness.

Of course, I'm hoping we get good footage of the next guy who tries it getting clocked by a Secret Service agent.

Santorum got glitter thrown at him yesterday in Blaine, MN.

Romney got hit with glitter twice on February 1 in Eagan, MN. His wife was standing next to him on the first assault and also got hit. I think they received the Secret Service protection soon after that.

Santorum got glitter thrown at him at the American Legion Hall in Lady Lake, Florida, January 23.

Also, Ron Paul got hit with glitter, along with a bunch of supporters, on February 6 while shaking hands at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

All it would take is one person doing this to Obama for the news media to declare that it has gotten out of hand. Until then, Republican candidates will get harassed almost every day.
