    This is the key part of the story....

    The round landed on the floor of the office a foot inside a broken window pane. No one was in the building, and police say an investigation has yielded no suspects.

    Didn't happen.

    Actually the key part was this

    It hit the front window of a building that houses Cantor's campaign office as it fell to back earth at a sharp angle.
    Other people have offices in there other than Cantor

    There's just one problem. It wasn't a headquarters for Cantor. It was one of his offices.

    Looking at Cantor's website:

    Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) :: Republican Whip

    The three offices listed are:

    4201 Dominion Blvd, #110
    Glen Allen, VA 23060


    Culpeper

    763 Madison Rd #207
    Culpeper, VA 22701

    Washington, DC

    329 Cannon Building
    Washington, DC 20515

    Neither of those are the Richmond 25 East Main St office.

    Furthermore there are no obvious markings that its his office:

    Virginia Politics Blog - Police say gunfire that hit Cantor's office was random

    Cantor's office is in a small building several blocks from Capitol Square. It has several small offices in it. There are no Cantor signs on the doors or windows. Various Republican candidates have occupied the offices in the historic Reagan Building through the years, including former governor Jim Gilmore.
    Here is where the office is located:
    25 East Main Street Richmond, VA 23219 - Google Maps

    It is located in the 3rd district http://ftp2.census.gov/geo/maps/cong...cd109_VA03.pdf

    Cantor represents the 7th district http://ftp2.census.gov/geo/maps/cong...cd109_VA07.pdf

    So the fact that Cantor said: "Just recently I have been directly threatened. A bullet was shot through the window of my campaign office in Richmond this week."

    Cantor's claim was disingenuous. He made it seem like he was targeted. The fact is this was completely random. A person would have to jump through a lot of hoops to go through the trouble of shooting at an office building that houses an office for Cantor, which isn't in his congressional district, isn't listed on his website, and has no campaign signs marking it.

    Well, to be fair, they probably lifted that directly from Sean Penn. Did you hear the phone calls to Jean Schmidt?

    NSFW: About Schmidt | The Daily Caller - Breaking News, Opinion, Research, and Entertainment

    And not just tea party people either.



    A few nut jobs do not define an an entire organization. You don't see people claiming Sean Penn and what he says, or Spike Lee, or even Michael Moore, as reflective of the entire Democratic party, so not sure why you would use a fringe member and make them reflective off tens of thousands of tea party members, unless you just wanted to slander the entire group.

    You don't mind then that I can pick out one moonbat from the Democratic / Progressives and then apply them to tens of millions of other Democrats then, right?
    I know that Sean Penn is a very loose and often a whackey cannon to say the least but he is not tied to a "movement" nor a party. I will look up to see who Jean Sschmidt is , her name is not ringing familiar right now.

    True that "A few nut jobs do not define an an entire organization" but this Tea PARTY crfowd has unleashed more than the usual allotment of whacks.
    Even those jerk offs the Code Pinkers have been load and they made some localized trouble but no leaders from any political party meeted and greated them.

    What has bohered me is when I listen to the phones calls the Tea's made those people do not sound as if they are of sound mind. The Tea's say that Democratic Congressmen's their nuts should be cut off, that someone will "get them", that they should get cancer.....on and on. Ok we all have seen those digusting signs with BO's picture turned into Hitler, and the Socialist/Commie thing but that is just stupid by stupid. Signs that said "If Brown will not fix it a Brown-ing will" is just plain inciting to do harm.

    The Republicans may not have actually concieved or created this Tea PARTY monster but they have been it's midwife And it appears their "morals" coach. !!!!

    sure the Demons have had things reported that did not happen but CANTOR IS NO 2 IN THE LEADERSHIP so for him to lie an whine about an non attack and blmae the Demons for what his monster friends did is dispictable.

    Is any of this supposed to make sense?

    Let's just pretend you aren't an expert on ballistics for one moment.... in fact, let's pretend you don't know any more about ballistics than the average person........... and that would be nothing.

    Now pretend you came into your office and found a window broken and a bullet on the floor.

    What would you think happened?

    This is where we find out just how honest you are.

    WTH are you babbling about?

    I don't follow your logic here.

    Sure, our guys may have lied about something, but since the #2 of your guys might have lied about something, we must blast him, some random persons who we consider friends of his, and label him dispictable (which is not a word, btw).

    WTF?



    As far as I can tell, the following occurred:
    1. “Health reform bill” passes.
    2. Protests increase.
    3. Bullet falls through the door of some branch office of a republican congressman.
    4. Congressman, on edge due to the protests and stress surrounding the issue, thinks someone shot at his branch office, and proceeds to contact police.
    5. Congressman does what all politicians do, given such circumstances, and tries to take political advantage of it.
    6. Police investigate, and find it highly unlikely that someone actually shot at the door.
    7. Congressman is embarrassed, etc. (I would assume).
    Education.
