    The Daily Mail reported:
    This is the astonishing moment a book was apparently hurled at the head of U.S. President Barack Obama during a campaign rally in Philadelphia.
    The flying missile narrowly missed hitting the President today.
    It is not clear where it came from in the crowd.
    But it is expected that there will be fallout from the security breach as the Secret Service investigates how close the President came to danger.
    The rally was clearly an eventful one – other images showed a naked man being led away in handcuffs by police.
    It is not clear if the man was involved in the book-throwing incident – or why he was not wearing any clothes.

    It is disrespectful to throw objects at the President.

    Not so. It is patriotic if you throw shit at a Republican President.

    Late Breaking News – Has the Naked Guy been ID’d? And is a wacky billionaire involved? (H/t commenter DanlBoone via The Daily Caller)
    If billionaire Alki David is an honest man, the man who streaked in front of Barack Obama at the president’s rally today in Philadelphia will be paid $1 million for his stunt. The man who performed today’s stunt, which captured the attention of the Drudge Report, is 24-year-old Juan James Rodriguez, THE WEEKLY STANDARD has learned.
    David is a billionaire shipping and bottling magnate who is known to carry out stunts, mainly by paying others to perform them. As the The Sun reported on August 17: “A WACKY billionaire has offered $1million (£638,700) to the first person who streaks in front of US President Barack Obama. Loaded Alki David has promised to pay out the cash — providing the streaker writes the name of his website ‘Battlecam’ across their chest.”
    BIGTIME h/t to DanlBoone for this pic clearly showing Naked Guy with Battlecam emblazoned on his gut:

    Hmm, no reporting of this in the MSM lovefest...just about all the "brotherly love" Obama found in Philly.

    Will the book thrower be a matinee idol, like the guy who threw a shoe at Bush?

    Yep, and you can thank the lefties for it during the Bush administration.
