I'm a bit at a loss for this blog posting, as there's been well-documented violence and vandalism committed by all sides of the political spectrum over the past 8 years. In 2004, Republican campaign offices were shot at and vandalized. Democrats were having their tires slashed in 2004, too. This was reported on by the media, and so the reporting on it now as if this is some sort of special phenomena that marks either some unusal anger in the McCain campaign or racism against Obama, or both, is just unbelievable.

Here's a nice report on vandalism being directed at the home of Republican Senator Norm Coleman in Minnesota just this week: There are lots of examples of this on both the Angry Left and the Angry Right.

I'm a bit bemused by the sudden interest in this as allegedly some new phenomena. As if the Angry Left hasn't been engaging in well-documented assassination fantasies (in Broadway shows of all places!) for the past 8 years.
