Video Of Rand Paul's Asskicking Emerges

Did they fight over a flower? Maybe.

Where have we seen this before? In a 1952 short film.

In this Oscar®-winning short film, Norman McLaren employs the principles normally used to put drawings or puppets into motion to animate live actors. The story is a parable about two people who come to blows over the possession of a flower.

The attack by a neighbor who tackled Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul while he was mowing the lawn was just a garden-variety dispute over shrubbery, according to an astonishing new report.

Paul's neighbor got arrested after he allegedly assaulted the Senator while he was mowing the lawn of his Kentucky home – in an attack that left Paul with five broken ribs and potentially missing key Senate votes.

The attorney for the next-door neighbor who attacked Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul causing the senator to break ribs and potentially miss key votes said it had 'absolutely nothing' to do with politics – and was over a 'trivial' matter. But he failed to specify what the fight was about.

A D.C.-based New York Times reporter has dug up just how trivial it was, posting on Twitter that the problem between neighbors 'stemmed from a dispute over 'some sort of planting or flora issue around the properties.'
