Prediction #3

Here we go! I love being right. I should also point out that all of these incidents are anonymous incidents. Meaning it could have been anyone, if you get my drift. But don’t worry – there are plenty of crazies out there. Won’t be long before they find their token psycho, and they’ll parade him around. There will be subtle and not-so-subtle stories about his or her links to the tea party and the right in general. Oh, just wait. We’ll see the propaganda machine in action very, very soon.

A coffin was placed on a Missouri Democrat’s lawn, another in a string of incidents against lawmakers after their vote Sunday on a health care overhaul.

Rep. Russ Carnahan (D-Mo.) had a coffin placed “near his home,” a spokesman said Wednesday evening.

The coffin was from a prayer vigil.

This came after Rep. Tom Perriello’s (D-Va.) brother’s gas lines were cut, Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) received death threats and Rules Committee Chairwoman Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) received a message saying snipers were being deployed to kill children of those who voted for health care overhaul.

Several other Democrats have had threats leveled against them, prompting a closed-door briefing of Democratic members by the FBI, Capitol Police and the House Sergeant at Arms.

And one more for fun..

FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Colorado Rep. Betsy Markey is among more than 10 Democrats in Congress who have received threats over voting for passage of the hotly contested health care reform bill.

A man called Markey’s congressional office the day before the Sunday vote and told an assistant that “[you] better hope I don’t run into you in a dark alley with a knife, a club or a gun,” MSNBC reported Wednesday.

The FBI is investigating threats against the lawmakers after acts of vandalism that included shattered windows at four Democratic offices in New York, Arizona and Kansas and a severed gas line at the Virginia home of a Democratic lawmaker’s brother, MSNBC reported.
