via The Carpetbagger Report:

Over the weekend, Dobson’s supporters decided to respond to Salazar’s criticisms — by going after his wife’s Dairy Queen.

In Westminster Sunday, about two dozen conservative Christians gathered Sunday in front of the Dairy Queen owned and operated by the Salazar family. […] The protesters’ signs bore messages such as “Salazar is anti-Christian” or “Salazar mocks God.”

Minister Bob Enyart said he stands against “the things Salazar advocates,” adding that the senator “openly supports immorality.”

Can’t you just feel the Christian love?

Not surprisingly, the senator was not amused, telling reporters, “It’s outrageous to target my wife’s Dairy Queen. They can protest me wherever they want. These tactics are outrageous and un-American and simply won’t work.”

The left and right may not agree on much, but can’t we leave ice cream out of this? What’s next, picketing Ben & Jerry’s because Ben and Jerry are politically-active liberals? On second thought, I shouldn’t give the right any ideas….

Can you help us out?
