    Let's be reasonable.

    •  not sure what that means.. (0+ / 0-)

      Sounds like you're using circumstantial evidence to convict a large group of people based on the actions of a few.

        I'm making some general discussion here, not prosecuting anyone.

        You acted like it wasn't even reasonable to assume Republicans did this. And I say it is, because they have the best motivation.

        Of the large group of people with motivation to do something like this, one or two or a few actually carried out the act.

          Of course it's reasonable to think that the person or persons who did this identify with the GOP. What I don't think is reasonable is this:

          Bereft of ideas, with no record to run on, Republicans are resorting to such vile tactics to hold power. They hate democracy, they hate having the voters hold them accountable, they hate being challenged.

          We are seeing them for what they're worth, clearer than ever before.

          First off this rhetoric is truly Coulter-esque. Switch one word and you could have something that Rush or Hannity spew on their shows.

          Furthermore, the clear implication is that all Republicans believe in these sorts of tactics and we all know that's just not the case. There's also a clear implication that the GOP has orchestrated these actions and there is zero evidence to support that claim.

          That is what my posts in this thread have been about.
