Rant coming on

This has got to be the dumbest fucking thing I've ever heard anyone anywhere ever consider doing.

And it's not a joke.  THIS is what the GOP and Tea Party have sunk to -- wild animals.  Nothing more.  Not even sub-human.

I'm finally beginning to think this country actually is in the throes of a civil war, and casualties have been taken on the liberal side.  People who went to hear a Democrat speak.  A doctor who provided abortions.  Worshipers in a church.  A security guard at a Jewish Center.  Even cops trying to stop nutcases who were out to kill liberals.

TP freaks and their their favorite bitches carry firearms to political rallies and threaten armed insurrection if they don't get their way.  Political and judicial leaders call for riot police to put down protesters and suggest they fire at them with live ammunition, if need be.  Organizations of hate viciously harass gay men because they won't stay in the closet and weep fake tears of victimhood when someone points that out.  The list goes on and on.  And what does John Boehner think is the worst thing that's happened this week?  Obama finally decided to stop defending DOMA!  It's lunacy.

The US has always had its crazies at both ends of the spectrum.  I and most of my friends opposed the invasion of Iraq, but none of us went so far as to hope American soldiers would be slaughtered as they rushed into Bagdad, like one leftie professor did.  And more recently, another left-wing professor said Lana Logan deserved to be raped when she was covering the protests in Egypt (as did many right wing "commentators", the only difference being the leftie wound up ashamed of his comments and resigned from his post while the righties still pat each other on the back for being such complete assholes).

But right now the right wing scum have gone completely, totally and absolutely insane...and those are the people in office!  Their "supporters" are frothing at the mouth like rabid dogs.

This is already ugly...I fear it's drifting into complete chaos.  Too bad a wuss is our leader.
