They met at last -- Tea Party darling Dana Loesch and blogger Adam Shriver.

As regular Daily RFT readers know, Shriver runs the St. Louis Activist Hub -- a blog dedicated to fact-checking the spigot of hyperbole flowing from the local Tea Party movement. One of Shriver's frequent subjects is the increasingly ubiquitous Loesch -- blogger, 97.1 FM radio host and regular on Fox News and Larry King Live.

Let's just say that the two don't see eye-to-eye. They had never met until Sunday when Shriver ventured down to the Arch grounds to take in the Tea Party rally. There he ran into the combative Loesch.

Below is the video from that confrontation. We're not sure what Loesch is talking about in accusing Shriver of cyber-stalking private citizens. Sure, she doesn't hold an elected office, but she definitely puts herself out there for public commentary. (Apparently, Loesch is still upset with Shriver disclosing that her husband's production studio makes ads for Republican candidate Ed Martin -- a story that Daily RFT also covered, earning us the ire of Dana and her husband, Chris Loesch.)

Loesch then turns the conversation with Shriver into a few routine conservative talking points about what is (or isn't) in the Constitution. Still, it makes for a somewhat amusing video. Kudos to Shriver for having the guts to enter the lioness's den -- and hold his ground.
