It's Always Nutty in Philadelphia

An arrest has been made in one of the cases of nutjobs threatening Republican Congressman Eric Cantor. This guy seems like a real winner.

Michelle Malkin has all the details, including pictures of the suspect, one Norman Leboon, who claims to be the 12th imam when he's not threatening American Jews.

Oh... and he's apparently a two-time Obama donor.

Norman Leboon? You couldn't make up such an name. Life imitates art, and the art is absurdist comedy.

Good as place as any to repost what I did just over a day ago on the WTF topic:

On the "On Topic" -

- Drunk driving inflated into political violence. Played hard it can result into an escalated counter-strike against members of the perceived opposition. Common tactic used by authoritarian parties to violently seize control of nations. Can be used by both partied in a political contest. Carries a heavy cloak of deniability. Can take years, if ever, before the survivors realize that they were the ones who initiated the violence.

And elsewhere, others of suggested political orientation are arrested for 'sedition'

Dude threatened Obama as well, Mark Sanford, Harry Reid, and all the worlds satellites, the King of Saudia Arabia, Iran, Israel....

Apparently he's pro Princess Di though, so it's not like he's always angry.

Over 2,000 video threats? What a loser! Well, someone is paying attention to the loser now. To bad for him it happens to be law enforcement.

So that's where the 12th Imam was hiding! And here I thought he was stuck in a well over in Iraq or something. No wonder they couldn't find him.
