Tea Party Blowhard Connected To Bomb Threat

Apparently, saying things like "...if ballots don't work, bullets will" actually does inspire dumb rednecks to do crazy things.  Those are the words of Joyce Kaufman, a tea party radio host in Florida who was expected to take over as Allen West's Chief of Staff. 

Yesterday a man emailed a south Florida local radio station threatening to bomb a government building, or possibly even a school.  The threat was taken so seriously that the entire Broward County school system went into lockdown.  Over 230,000 had to stay locked in their classrooms until the warning was lifted at 1:30 pm yesterday.  A Fox affiliate is now reporting that the writer of the email said he was inspired by Kaufman.  Two other newspapers in south Florida are suggesting that the threat-maker may have been trying to defend Kaufman against the negative press she has recently received.
The email reportedly threatened, "I'm planning something big around the government building here in Broward County, maybe a post office, maybe even a school."

How many people can honestly say they're surprised by this type of thing?
