"Webster might survive a nine millimeter, but doubtful he'd survive a 50 cal."
In this era of “violent rhetoric,” which is blamed on conservatives, there‘s a recent GOP death threat you probably haven’t heard of. Not a threat made against a liberal, but rather a threat made against the chairman of the Maine GOP that actually references the Tucson shootings:
The threat came after the assassination attempt of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, while much of the media was trying to blame that incident on conservative rhetoric and made a point to cite supposed examples. That the threat in Maine didn’t garner national attention, then, is surprising. Or maybe it isn’t.
