A video of a vicious beating at a Baltimore County McDonald's restaurant went viral Friday, garnering hundreds of thousands of views on websites and prompting the fast-food giant to issue a statement condemning the incident. The video shows two women — one of them a 14-year-old girl — repeatedly kicking and punching the 22-year-old victim in the head, as an employee of the Rosedale restaurant and a patron try to intervene. Others can be heard laughing, and men are seen standing idly by. Toward the end of the video, one of the suspects lands a punishing blow to the victim's head, and she appears to have a seizure.

A Baltimore County delegate said Wednesday that the governor should send in the Maryland State Police to control "roving mobs of black youths" at Baltimore's Inner Harbor, prompting a colleague to label the message "race-baiting. " Del. Patrick L. McDonough, a Republican whose district includes part of Harford County, distributed a news release with the headline: "Black Youth Mobs Terrorize Baltimore on Holidays. " In it, McDonough said he had sent a letter to Gov. Martin O'Malley urging him to use the state police to help prevent attacks and to declare the Inner Harbor area a "no-travel zone" until safety can be guaranteed.

When President Barack Obama released his long-form birth certificate yesterday, there were winners (sane people) and losers (Donald Trump).  But the biggest loser of all wasn't Trump. It was Jerome Corsi, along with his book "Where's the birth certificate?" and the WorldNetDaily "Superstore. "  Corsi's book, which recently hit No. 1 on Amazon.com before it has even been released (thanks to a huge plug from the Drudge Report), now has been completely overtaken by current events.  How can a book called "Where's the birth certificate?"
