It is not, however, illegal to threaten a congressman.
This man is Jim Jordan, Republican congressman from Ohio. I am watching him, as we speak, pester Hillary Clinton during the Benghazi hearings. I hate him. I mean, I really hate him. And it’s not because he’s Republican, or conservative, or a Tea Party member.
It’s because he’s a fucking gnat. It’s like listening to and watching a street rat gnaw at your toes. He interrupts incessantly, he’s disrespectful, he’s intrusive, he’s repetitive. He’s just an absolute asshole of a politician, and were I living in Ohio I’d be embarrassed to have him speaking on my behalf, and voting on my behalf.
I am not threatening Jim Jordan. But were he to appear at my front door, asking for a place to sleep or eat, I’d punch him in the face, and enjoy doing so.
