  •  This is an act of terrorism... (6+ / 0-)

    And most likely, domestic in origin.

    It was also, most likely, a broader attempt to do what that right-wing group's ad on Univision could not: scare those of Hispanic origin into staying home and not voting.

    I pray no one will suffer any physical or physiological injury from this among Congressman Grijalva's staff. I also hope no psychological damage is done to anyone planning on supporting him with their vote. Quite the opposite, in fact.

    I'm not any fan of trying and convicting someone in the court of public opinion, but I really do think we can add this incident to the similar ones Markos mentions in his book.

      I can't think of any possible gain an Islamist terrorist could get from this...Attacking a candidate? He's not even an officeholder.
