    ...but parties do not.  Campaigns sometimes vandalize bu that's another matter.

    Just because you're a democrat or a republican doesn't mean the democratic party or the republican party is to blame for every idiotic illegal thing you do.

    Just saying.

    We should treat this for what it is.  a person or a group of people commiting a politically motivated crime.  That doesn't make it a conspiracy and it shouldn't be treated so.

    If a democrat demands accountability in the Capital and no one covers it, does he make a sound?

    •  I'm not sure what you mean by (0+ / 0-)

      "conspiracy."  Is rampant robo-calling a conspiracy?  That seems like a funny word for it.

      I agree, of course, that a political party is not to blame for every idiotic thing an alleged member of the party does.

        ...this is a story about a campaign office being vandalized.  Robo-calling is not vandalism.

        That is what I was talking about.  Taking an act of vandalism and using it to validate certain pre-conceived notions.  We don't know who did this.  We shouldn't be talking as if we do.  We should not be using it to chastize the GOP as if they ordered the "hit".

        Just saying.

        •  Fair enough. (0+ / 0-)

          And remind me never to attempt to stipulate anything for the purposes of debate . . . even if I use the word "stipulate".  People will jump on you as if you meant it really.
