Republican Senator Dan Kapanke says he's changing up his work schedule after getting death threats and having his car damaged.
Kapanke says he has to get his windshield fixed after someone cracked it in Madison. He says he noticed it after the collective bargaining reform bill passed last week Wednesday night. Kapanke also received threats by email and people have rallied outside his home.

Ah, the New Civility. So much for the President's speech at the Tuscon pep rall.......er.....memorial service.

It's the leftist way - they talk a good talk when it comes to being peaceful, but year after year, event after event, despite their claims that "the right wing" is "violent and dangerous," they continue to demonstrate that they're far more violent than their political opposites.

They're like little children throwing tantrums when they don't get their way. It would be funny if it wasn't so concerning.

There are crazy people on both - Aah, beaten to it!

Doesn't make it not true. Nobody should be getting death threats. He should be voted out of office using the democratic process.

I'm waiting for Janet Napolitano to list union members as potential terrorists as she did returning Iraq and Afghanistan war vets.

That is how desperate people are getting.
That is how radical people are getting.

There is no more moderate; they are getting drowned out and walked over by the radicals on each side.

The US has become a nation of greedy, arrogant, self centered, egotistical people.

How long until someone chimes in that there is no proof it was someone from the Left, and was most likely a Tea Party supporter doing the damage to make Lefties look bad? LOL

I'll say it's likely, but not certain, the threat came from a political opponent of Sen. Kapanke. But really, how often do we hear Tea Party supporters claiming that bad acts from their ranks are "false flags?"

The current administration and its minions are more concerned about the Tea Party types and their danger to America.
