  •  Doverspa is Coburn supporter (none)
    The comment that started all this self-doubt about calling the Republicans on thier veiled threat of violence was by Doverspa, who is a staunch supporter of Coburn.  Remember him?  You know, death to abortion providers, and lesbians are infesting the junior high schools in Oklahoma.

    And you guys are giving him mojo?

     

    •  In case it matters (none)
      Yes, I supported Dr. Coburn's candidacy because of his stances against pork politics in the House.  I expect he will be a thorn in the side of Republican leadership in the Senate just as he was in the House and hopefully he'll be able to slow spending.  I also support a lot of liberal causes including gay rights.  I am pro-life and believe Oklahoma should have control over its own abortion laws.  I have not hidden my views on this site and you can look at my past comments to see that.  I am no troll, I am a Republican.  I hope you recongize the difference.

      I do not know how any of this affects my assertion that the quote above is not a call to violence.  I further assert that most of you would go balistic if  a similar quote by a Democrat was asserted to mean there was going to be blood in the streets.  But one truism in politics is that both sides are consistent about being inconsistent (or better: everyone is a hypocrite).
