    She was ramming the White House gate when the chase started.

    So if she was riled up by anybody's rhetoric, it was Griffin and his nutbag colleagues.

    •  Perhaps (0+ / 0-)

      There are many potential scenarios. One possibility that I've considered is that the woman was attempting "suicide by cop." Due to the Republican shutdown, many working mothers have been denied access to essentials like food, child care and jobs, potentially enough to drive some marginal families over the edge.

        not all of them political.

        Christ, how many times have you been lost in DC? That's just one of a bunch of other non-government-related possibilities.

        Like, are there really working moms teetering on the brink and driving Infinitis?

        There's waaaaay more to this yet, idiot Teahag tweets aside...

        This all started with "what the Republicans did to language".

        •  DC has some serious aggressive drivers, too (0+ / 0-)

          And that's true of Maryland and Virginia, too. Part of the problem is that police rarely do anything, even if you call them. Once, I watched a Maryland officer allow an aggressive driver to drive off without even a word of caution. The driver was reeking of booze and had a child in the back seat.
