I'm Made of Rubber, You're Made of Glue
It’s like a mind bending puzzle. I can’t keep up.
A Republican congressman is saying that a bullet was fired through the window of his campaign office. He also says he has received threatening phone calls but won’t release them because he doesn’t want to incite further violence. You’ll just have to imagine for yourselves how nasty the threat was.
The CNN article reads: He also accused Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine and Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland -- a member of the Democratic House leadership -- of "fanning the flames" of violence by using threats that have been made against Democratic members "as political weapons." "Enough is enough," Cantor said. "It has to stop."
Let me get this straight, you report that somebody is terrorizing you and then you say it’s the Dems’ fault because their complaints about violent threats against them are fueling the violence flames. Do I have this right?
It’s time for a time-out for the lot of you. I’d like to call for a 48 hour respite from the lunacy. All members of Congress must leave WDC and go home for the next 48 hours and during that time no media coverage of anything to do with anything political will be allowed. Please, I’m begging you.
