Kook Nation: Crazy Lady Who Threw Shoe at Hillary Clinton Is Crazy

Posted on | April 13, 2014 | 45 Comments

The wackos are everywhere nowadays:

Before a wig-wearing nutjob threw a shoe at Hillary Clinton, the footwear flinger gave her heart to accused Colorado mass killer James Holmes.
Alison Ernst, 36, of Phoenix, was identified Friday as the sneaker-tossing kook who targeted the former First Lady one day earlier during a speech at a Las Vegas casino.
And Colorado officials confirmed she was the loopy lady escorted from the courtroom after a bizarre — and bald-headed — outburst during an August 2012 court hearing for Holmes. . . .
Twenty months earlier, she arrived in a Colorado courtroom with her head shaved while wearing a red dress before declaring she held evidence “vital to the defense of James Holmes.” Two deputies quickly escorted her outside.
The Arizona woman later filed an off-the-wall lawsuit detailing her devotion to Holmes, who was accused of killing 12 people and wounding another 70 in an Aurora movie theater. . . .
“I seek a restraining order to stop Holmes from entering my mind through subliminal messaging and causing me to be obsessed with him on a daily basis.”

Almost as “off-the-wall” as Brett Kimberlin’s Second Amended Complaint.

    I assume this is an example of even a broken clock being right twice a day (so when will she toss the other shoe)

    I assumed she was some sort of leftist or crazy since we did not hear much about her. Even Harry Reid didn’t claim she was paid by the Koch brothers.

    If she was twenty or twenty five years younger, she would be potential Kimberlin dating material.

    Just another example who we as a culture no longer care for the mentally ill until *after* they become violent. Kennedy and the ACLU declared that the mentally ill had the right to live on the street, eat out of dumpsters and terrorize the sane

    Contrast this against the time W had a shoe thrown at him by an Iraqi. Press loved that one. They went all “we ponder the deeper meaning of this action as political protest” harrumph harrumph.

    Such insensitivity. She belongs in a nice safe place, protected from such H8rz, where life is “gay, all day long.”

    It’s free association; Stacy discusses a crazy lady, and your name pops into my head, for some odd reason.

    I love thunderstorms. Every summer my sister and I used to sit on porch at our country home to watch the storms, and often got soaked by gusts of rain. But we had great fun.

    If the power goes off, hope it gets restored soon. Be safe!
