Letter to GOP senator laced with ricin, Tea Party to be blamed in 5…4…3…2…

130416-Senator-Roger-Wicker.380;380;7;70;0On Tuesday, a letter sent to the office of Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) tested positive for ricin, a poison so powerful that a dose as small as a few grains of salt can kill a full-grown adult.

The letter, fortunately, never made it to the senator, as it was caught at an off-site mail facility in Washington, D.C., CNN said.

The question now is, how long will it be before propagandists in the Democrat-media complex blame conservatives or the Tea Party as they always do when something like this happens.

A post at Twitchy notes that some on Twitter have already made the connection.

“Probably right wing terror groups sent Ricin to all 16 “Traitor” Republican Senators to end gun control filibuster,” one person said without providing any evidence.

But that’s the way liberals work.  They don’t need evidence, just the accusation.

Politico added:

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) said members were briefed that the substance had been found in a letter and a suspect has been identified.

McCaskill said the letter came from an individual who frequently writes to lawmakers. She wouldn’t identify the person but confirmed officials had identified someone.

Politico also reported:

The incident comes one day after three people were killed and 176 were injured as two bombs exploded at the Boston Marathon. Lawmakers speculated on the unfortunate timing. The FBI is investigating the Boston bombings as an “act of terrorism,” though whether domestic or international is unclear. President Barack Obama will travel to Boston on Wednesday.

No doubt, soon we’ll hear hosts at various news outlets blame this on conservatives or the Tea Party.
