    But it's not just one. And it appears that they are being encouraged in their lunacy by the hysteria of other extremist loons who do things like use cross-hairs to 'target' people who voted for the health care bill.

    SEATTLE – A Washington state man has been charged with threatening to kill Democratic Sen. Patty Murray over her support for health care reform, leaving voicemail messages at her office saying she had a target on her back and "it only takes one piece of lead."

    Federal agents arrested Charles Alan Wilson without incident in Yakima, Wash., on Tuesday.

    Murray's office in Seattle reported the threats amid a rash of ugliness aimed at lawmakers who supported the sweeping federal health care legislation. Some lawmakers have been spit on and several have reported receiving threatening calls.

    FBI spokesman Bill Carter said Wilson is believed to be the first person in the country arrested for such threats.

    When you put it that way, death threats to elected officials are no big deal.

    Threats are protected speech or at least they should be. Its actions that are punishable by law not speech unless you live in 'liberal'-land where anything said against the president is either hate speech or dangerous.

    Its kind of like this website when liberals decide to censor other people for such trivial things.
