Republicans in Congress should probably carry guns and convoy together until things calm down. The Left has always been dangerous when challenged. They’re seriously unhinged now. (If you’re catching flak you’re over the target.)

A lunatic on the left no doubt, that will be portrayed as a right wing nut.

I can see the tolerance and inclusiveness of the left from my front porch...

Republican members of the Wisconsin legislature could offer workshops on safety with lessons drawn from the 2012 session. They were badgered (no pun intended), harangued, threatened, and fists thrown at them every day while the Democrats fled across state lines to try to impede progress.

Just so nobody get confused, this is NOT related to the shooting, it happened a few hours ago.

Someone grabbed his arm then yelled at him. Not much of an assault.

“Someone grabbed his arm then yelled at him.”

Sounds like the life of every married man in America.

No. However, this guy is a top notch Tea Party guy. He should be treated with utmost respect. The assault was not much. However, he was required to report it and of course the media goes overboard.
