Careful What You Say About People's House

How determined are the Democrats to push the idea that the Tea Party is somehow responsible for the shootings in Arizona? They're going to propose legislation making it illegal to threaten members of The People's House.

Rep. Robert Brady, D-Pennsylvania, said he will introduce legislation making it a federal crime for a person to use language or symbols that could be perceived as threatening or inciting violence against a Member of Congress or federal official.

Brady is particularly incensed over a web posting by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin during the 2010 election in which she targeted 20 House Democrats, including Giffords for political defeat. The posting showed a map of the United States with the 20 Democratic congressional districts identified by gun sights.

Remember, there is no evidence that the political atmosphere in any way contributed toward the violence against Rep Giffords.
