Police rescue Lefty protesters from homicidal Palin motorcade!

Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit has the story about protesters trying to impede Sarah Palin’s motorcade in Colorado:

Eight to 10 protesters broke away from a larger group of demonstrators and darted into the street in front of Palin's car just after the first police motorcycles in her motorcade had passed, said Acting Chief Troy Smith of the Grand Junction Police Department.

Wearing bandanas and with their faces covered, the protesters blocked the path and held up a large banner. Officers stopped their motorcycles, grabbed the protesters and dragged several out of the path of the oncoming motorcade.
How come they’ve always got their faces covered? Are they ashamed of themselves or something? Mom and Dad might stop your allowance if they see you on the news acting stupid?

Anyway. Pay special attention to this paragraph:

Smith said officers saved the protesters from injury because "the motorcade likely would not have stopped" for them. He said "we don't know what their intentions were" in trying to block Palin's motorcade.
See, the Secret Service is not going to allow the motorcade to stop in an unsecured area. They'd keep right on going, even if they had to run somebody over.

But if they ran somebody over, that would reflect on Palin and the campaign – not on the idiot who ran in front of a moving vehicle.

I’m just hoping there aren’t any Obamaniacs out there infatuated enough to “take one for the Messiah” in quite that fashion.
