Really? Are you kidding?
If you throw a dildo at a politician, the message is clear. How can you not get that. The thrower is telling the politician "GO FUCK YOURSELF" in a way that is going to get covered by every news outlet around.
Had she shouted it to him, or walked up and told him in person, it would have been a no-go moment. No one would have cared and she would not have been able to embarrass the politician AND get it carried world wide.
This guy was from New Zealand. My LOCAL newspaper in my little podunk city even carried this article (although with no pictures and wording changed). They weren't going to say "dildo" in the newspaper!
So I got to thinking, did she throw a GOOD dildo or just some junk she had lying around. It would make more sense and more insult to throw a honestly-used sex toy.
