This story has been more or less in the background for some time, as the receipts of envelopes containing swastikas, cat food, and shit sent by right wing extremists is fairly run of the mill. But the latest envelope from what appear to be white supremacist teabagging terrorists sent to Congressman Raul Grijalva’s office appears to have contained a toxic “white powder.” His office has been shut down and his campaign in this very close race has been severely disrupted.

Details here.

And, this:

    But the tea party is a legitimate political movement giving voice to concerns over the constitutionality of Democratic policies.

    Strange, isn’t it, that this story isn’t being carried in the Phoenix-area papers? (Which, amusingly, are accused by the teabaggers of being far-left agents of pinkofascism.)

    Well this guy is going to violently overthrow the government if the leadership doesn’t change. It’s really frightening these people could be elected considering just how crazy they are.

    How do we know it has anything to do with the tea party? Can’t just be some Jethro Clampit hillbilly with envelopes, a cat, some talcum, and a sharpie?

    I have not mentioned the Tea Party. Why do people always assume that racist, hyperlibertarian, morAnic, mean spirited, gunsucking selfish politics comes from the Tea Party?

    Also, is there really a Tea Party? Officially? If there was, I’d be a lot of these yahooistic teabaggers would join in a second.

    ETA? The Real IRA? Continuity IRA? The Naxalites in India? All terrorists are Muslim?

    It’s obviously the fault of the liberals. If these liberal Democrats would just keep their mouths shut and not try to change things, patriotic Americans wouldn’t feel the need to send them toxic substances in the mail.
