Pay no attention to that man in the wheelchair

Bobby MullerCops were called when a Swift Boat book signing in Chicago got ugly. A group of Kerry supporters, some of whom served with the Democratic presidential candidate in Vietnam, showed up at the reading and began to challenge John O’Neill, the author of a book alleging Kerry did not deserve his medals. As O’Neill ignored them, and continued to sign books,

military veteran Bobby Muller [whose photo at right was taken when he spoke at the DNC] approached in his wheelchair, shook the author’s hand, then asked repeatedly if O’Neill would debate him on Kerry’s record.

After the two bickered for a few moments, O’Neill’s wife, Anne, intervened, telling Muller to stop while nudging him away in his wheelchair.
