Congressman Assaults Student on Street - Updated

Talk about thug politics.

Update: David Weigel, representing the assweasel view at the Washington Post describes Etheridge's actions thus (emphasis added):
The second camera rolled as Etheridge, irritated, held the wrist of the first cameraman, then pulled the student to his side and grabbed him in a hug.
A hug? Yeah, that's the ticket. I remember pissing off the old man and getting a hug like that...just before the belt came off.
