    "What is objectionable, what is dangerous about extremists, is not that they are extreme, but that they are intolerant. The evil is not what they say about their cause, but what they say about their opponents."

    - Robert F. Kennedy

    If the RNC is posting letters on their website encouraging people to commit specific acts of violence against specific political figures - shouldn't someone BE ARRESTED?

    Incitement is difficult to prove. As is slander and libel. For example, you would think that someone who continuously said that "bush lied" could be sued as well. The reality is that the hoops to jump thru are too narrow.

    Agreed

    First, McCain tells the world that Obama isn't an Arab, now this.

    Can they really win without the nutcase fringe vote?

    I disagree. For example:

    Can you prove in a court that a specific person incited a specific person via the website to harm Obama?

    Can you prove in a court that a specific person intentionally was trying to generally incite anyone via the website to harm Obama?

    Think like a lawyer and you will see my point. Now, a civil suit? I dunno about the hoops there. But the concept of innocent until proven guilty is a tough one to overcome if you've a competent lawyer.
