Wonkette reports that blogger Mike Stark (of dailykos.com) was physically attacked by people presumed to be staffers for Sen. George Allen (R-VA) during a campaign rally today, after the blogger asked Allen, "why did you spit on your first wife." Link, includes video. Stark has written a letter about the incident, and why he asked that question, here. (Thanks, Craig)
Reader comment: Unholy Moses sez
Mike Stark may crosspost at DailyKos, but he is better known for running the Web site "Calling All Wingnuts" (callingallwingnuts.com), where he chronicles his attempts to call into right-wing radio shows and take the host(s) to task. Oh, and he'll be filing a lawsuit, per his letter to the Richmond Times Dispatch: Link.
