What is up with liberals openly condoning violence lately? It’s weird, right?

West Virginia’s senatorial candidates debated recently, and Democrat incumbent Joe Manchin was, apparently, feeling violent about his opponent Patrick Morrissey. At a recent campaign rally, he said:

“It took every bit of my discipline not to beat the living crap out of (Morrissey)”

The bizarre comment was met with cheers. Morrissey was less impressed.

I’d stick this one in the “if a republican said it” file, but it’s getting awfully full.
