I mean if stunts like this are effective, why not keep repeating them?
Republican Maryland Rep. Andy Harris was reportedly assaulted by protesters inside of his office on Capitol Hill on Tuesday.
According to Jennifer Bendery, a reporter for The Huffington Post, the Capitol Police confirmed that protesters pushed in the door to Harris’ office and assaulted the congressman.
“Harris was trying to hold his office door closed but was not successful,” Bendery tweeted. “Also the demonstrators were smoking weed.”
Wait, they were smoking weed? Isn’t weed supposed to make you mellow?
Sadly, we’re almost certain to see more of this.
Update: Turns out they may be pro marijuana protesters.
I am being told by some that the protesters who assaulted Rep. Harris were actually marijuana legalization activists, in which case 1) um, you're wasting your time with a dude who represents Maryland's eastern shore, friendos; 2) excellent job showing the flag for your cause.

Again, pot is supposed to make you mellow.
The Kavanaugh confirmation circus has amped up tensions, but this is a good reminder that we reached a fevered state long before the Kavanaugh nomination.
