Brad and Janet and Tire-slashing

James Rowen is yet another voice coming out against reform in Wisconsin's electoral process. Jib does a good job dissecting Rowen's arguments here, so I'll just interject that my jaw dropped open when I read this comparison:

The tire-slashings damaged a parking lot filled with vans rented by Republican election workers. It was stupid and criminal behavior, but let's also remember that it was a prank that got out of hand.

This is a good time to recall another high-profile prank that went awry last year in Milwaukee near UW-M, when a group of nerdy "Rocky Horror Picture Show" devotees knocked down and frightened a young woman.

The tire-slashing incident -- intended to prevent Republicans from getting voters to the polls -- is being compared to knocking down and frightening a young woman? A little perspective, please!
