GOP leader: Me, too

Posted By on Thu, Mar 25, 2010 at 11:42 AM

Rep. Eric Cantor, No. 2 Republican in the House, says he's received phone threats and a bullet was fired through a window in his Richmond office.

Josh Marshall shames Cantor, Boehner, etc. And more here, including some shakiness about the gunshot story.

Love health reform, hate health reform. This much is simple fact: The noise, the anger, the talk of ass-kickings and worse has been the long, persistent and continuing province of one side of the issue. Media and political leaders have fomented it because they believe, not without some reason, that intimidation works.

More on Cantor's increasingly dubious effort to find equivalency in a single, probably insignificant act and a long pattern of bullying and hate speech.
