    This is were the Tea Party is leading this country: Hate for everybody that is not a crazy fundamentalist! We are living in scary times. It reminds me of what was happening to Jewish shops in pre-war Germany!

    Well, be thankful it was just his office, and not the whole city.

    This just proves that there alot of crazies out there! Anyone that attacks anyones political office or campaign should face a stiff jail sentence.

    Rick McDaniel up there is a perfect example: blaming the crime on the victim and threatening of widespread violence.

    Campaign violence. Something liberals know all too well, though usually in the form of their own activists, Black Panthers, etc. It's inexcusable from either side and those guilty should be held accountable. Unlike Jason, who wants "a stiff jail sentence" the act should be punished accordingly, not by some arbitrary knee jerk reaction. Lets not overreact, but on the same hand, lets not under-react. I do find it funny that CNN decided to post this item, but have never posted the acts of violence against Republican offices, vehicles, etc. Yeah, we know CNN has a massive bias.

    This is what the Republican Tea Party has brought us.
    Hate and contempt for their fellow man is all the GOP has any more. Sad.
    Oh, and their economic solutions? Same thing that brought our economy to it's knees in the first place. Old, not grand.
