So you think talk of this being a harbinger of a Second Civil War may be overly hyperbolic. A brief history refresher then...

Charles Sumner. Preston Brooks. "Google it", kids.

I'd tap the brakes on Civil War talk.

In order to have a "war" you'd need an Army.

Are we going to sign up now or wait for the conscription orders?

It would be funny though if Ted Cruz beat Chuck Schumer's ass with a cane.

If I remember correctly, Brooks walked with a fine.

And if we compare the reactions of disgusting morons like former LA prosecutor Gupta to the reactions then, we can see how PERILOUS is our condition right now

And it's not only Gupta. See Left-Wing Twitter Celebrates Shooting of Rep. Scalise [UPDATED].

I really have a hard time pointing the finger at the left for celebrating this shooting.

I know I'd be hard pressed to not celebrate a Leftist Politician getting shot.

I celebrated the passing of Ted Kennedy and John Murtha.

We differ there, then.

No matter how I felt about the demise of Leftist politicians, I haven't celebrated in a public forum.

Yeah, I believe I did.

I guess it really comes down to how much you hate something.

I really hate these leftist politicians. No less than I hate Bin Laden. Probably more than I hate North Koreans.

That's why I understand the Left's hate .... its as genuine as mine.

I just cant pretend to not be happy when something bad happens to someone I hate.

Although I also understand where your coming from AOW, I just cant lie to myself. I'd be ecstatic if something horrible were to happen to Pelosi.

I think our nation would be better off with them dead.

Cold and callous I reckon. But I'm only being honest with you and myself.

Not suggesting BTW I would kill them if I had the opportunity, But I'm kinda glad to know there are others out there that would.

Although I see your "In a Public Forum" caveat.

..... thats kinda the reason I'm banned pretty much everywhere else I've ever left a comment. :-)

I dont have the good sense you do to not always write what I'm thinkin'

Don't get me wrong...I did not eulogize the Admiral of Chappaquiddick -- or any other departed Leftist.

I hate Leftist politicians. But I figure that when they're dead and gone, I don't need to celebrate. Much, anyway -- and certainly not in a public forum.

Although I do admit to cracking a bottle of champagne now and then.
