Because when you think "enlightened political discourse," you think of "dog droppings"

Republican U.S. Rep. Marilyn Musgrave's re-election campaign was already heated, and it just got smelly as well: Her staff accused a Democratic activist Thursday of leaving an envelope full of dog feces at Musgrave's Greeley office.

Musgrave spokesman Shaun Kenney said someone stuffed the envelope through the mail slot in the door on May 31 and then sped away in a car. Kenney said most of the preprinted return address was blacked out, but staffers used the nine-digit ZIP code to trace it to Kathleen Ensz, a Weld County Democratic volunteer.

Ensz told The Associated Press she left the envelope at Musgrave's office but said it "wasn't in the office doors, it was in the foyer." Asked what she meant by the act, she declined comment. ...more

I suppose it speaks for itself. I'm just amazed she admitted to doing something so juvenile, tasteless and unsanitary.

If this were done to her opponent it would probably be classified as bio-terrorism given the (admittedly small) risk presented by the dog feces. The abject hatred that the left has for Musgrave is unfathomable.

Maybe it's time to start cataloguing incidents of Democrats' crimes against their opponents, such as this 2004 criminal case in which Kerry-Edwards campaign staff, including the son of a member of Congress, slashed tires on Republicans' GOTV vehicles.

It's probably too early to speak of terrorism, but "thuggery" sounds about right.

In 2000 a homosexual activist went undercover in the Republican primary in Iowa and tried to infect one candidate's staff with the flu by doing things like licking doorknobs. The thug bore the appropriate surname of Savage.
