Re: Ricin sent to US Senator

We can obviously rule out any democrat, as they're non-violent and would never hurt anyone. Did Wicker cross party lines recently? Did he do anything that might get him labelled a RINO? He's got an A+ rating on the NRA scorecard.

I was wondering why you didn't say something like this in the first post, but I guess delayed climax is more fulfilling, isn't it.

Re: Ricin sent to US Senator

Is it too late to make a Breaking Bad joe and/or take pot shots at Democrats?

It's never too late to take shots at Democrats but leave Breaking Bad alone.. It's at least got something good about it.

Re: Ricin sent to US Senator

first letter was from Memphis, which is located near the Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas borders. Can't get more "Red State" than Tennessee, Alabama or Arkansas, can you?

Google search reveals:

Yes, he recently voted for cloture to end the filibuster on guns and was labled a traitor and a RINO amongst other things.

He also had lunch with President Obama, which is perhaps even worse.

Re: Ricin sent to US Senator

Reports are coming in of "suspicious letters" to several other Senators (Carl Levin, Richard Shelby, Jeff Flake); it's too early to tell whether they're real threats or just cases of jumpy nerves.
