    AP sources: FBI arrests man for threatening Pelosi

    Excerpted from “AP sources: FBI arrests man for threatening Pelosi” By DEVLIN BARRETT, The Associated Press, The Washington Post, Wednesday, April 7, 2010; 4:26 PM
    The FBI arrested a northern California man Wednesday for allegedly making threatening phone calls to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over health care reform, law enforcement officials told The Associated Press.

    Charges against the man have yet to be disclosed, but they are expected to be filed in federal court in California.

    Several federal officials said the man made dozens of calls to Pelosi's homes in California and Washington, as well as to her husband's business office. They said he recited her home address and said if she wanted to see it again, she would not support the health care overhaul bill that since has been enacted.

    One official said the man is believed to have spoken directly with Pelosi at least once. …
    Wow! Just wow! I wonder how stupid you must be to repeatedly threaten the number three person in line to the presidency. I would hazard a guess that you have to be pretty ****ing stupid.

    Unbelievable. Maybe he was wearing a tin-foil hat while he did it and therefore thought he was shielded from tracing by the authorities?

    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    You had a better chance of convincing Bush to pull out of Iraq and Afghanistan than convincing Pelosi to abandon Obamacare.

    Fox News and the Tea Party gets an honorable mention for spewing bull**** that was destined to demand fear and anger from people too irrational to decrypt entertainment from fact.

    The difference is that when a liberal wackjob threatens a Republican, it's dog bites man. When a conservative wackjob threatens a Democrat, it's man bites dog.

    If every left-wing loon getting arrested for an asinine political statement made DP, you'd be scrolling for minutes to see it all.

    I didn't know that Nancy Pelosi was black.

    That's one of the problems in America right now... too much talk, not enough action. Pelosi is one waste of carbon and water I wouldn't mind seeing going back into the ecology.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
