Pelosi is a middling politician at best and a fairly crappy Speaker of the House. That said, I don't wish harm on her.
And that makes me a hypocrite, because I'd have been ok with someone cold-cocking Paul Ryan to the point he got a TBI. The difference with me and the GOP is that I admit I'm a hypocrite.
Hopefully that is not our only difference, but.........you never know.
Isn't this attack just a redux on an individual level of January 6th? Or the personal attacks - physical and otherwise - since BLOTUS became a candidate back in 2015? It's just on another level. ....and mark my words, the first of what is to become a string of them.
As 710 pointed out, next time it will just be explosives put outside their (or someone like them) house. Not even a stretch - and the FBI, with all its wisdom, has yet to find who placed two bombs at the Capitol.
We, as a nation, are closer to the verge of a civil war.
There is no stopping folks like this. And it's not like the GOP is denouncing them or their actions.
Verbal sparring got Rapist Brett Kavanaugh Congress-appointed security after his decision on Roe v Wade. He got a-scared by people protesting in front of his house or harassing the restaurants to which he patronizes. Imagine how upsetting that might be compared to sexual assault. ....what kind of world is this when you can't order your lobster bisque in peace.
I have yet to hear Congress act on security for the Speaker. And for Kavanaugh, they approved it in like 36 hours. You know they won't do a thing for a democrat, let alone a woman.
Every time you think this country can't get more fucked up, they prove me wrong.
