BREAKING on CNN! Risin poison letter sent to U.S. Senate.
Sounds like the military reasserting control.
This is crazy, I need to cum in a tight ass to calm down.
Wow. All of Cheney's old Halliburton props and ops are up and swingin'!
Hopefully a GOP Senator got the letter.
Cheney's at Thatcher's funeral tomorrow. I hope he croaks of a heart attack right there at St. Paul's Cathedral.
Just reported.. letter was sent to a Repug senator.
Why was it intercepted?
Oh good lord.
It wouldn't surprise me if(Insert Repug Here)sent it to himself to gain sympathy and foster outrage.
What a pathetic attempt to upstage Boston! There's no doubt the Rethug had it sent to himself.

RICIN, not risin.
[bold] Envelope tests positive for ricin at Washington mail facility [/bold]
Washington (CNN) -- An envelope that tested positive for the deadly poison ricin was intercepted Tuesday afternoon at the U.S. Capitol's off-site mail facility in Washington, congressional and law enforcement sources tell CNN.
After the envelope tested positive in a first routine test, it was retested two more times, each time coming up positive, the law enforcement source said. The package was then sent to a Maryland lab for further testing.
The envelope was addressed to a U.S. senator, though the sources would not say which one.
Ricin is a highly toxic substance derived from castor beans. As little as 500 micrograms -- an amount the size of the head of a pin -- can kill an adult. There is no specific test for exposure and no antidote once exposed.
It can be produced easily and cheaply, and authorities in several countries have investigated links between suspect extremists and ricin. But experts say it is more effective on individuals than as a weapon of mass destruction.
Ricin was used in the 1978 assassination of Bulgarian dissident Georgi Markov. The author, who had defected nine years earlier, was jabbed by the tip of an umbrella while waiting for a bus in London and died four days later.
All mail goes through off site inspection, testing and irradiation before it gets to the senators and representatives. THis was started when anthrax was sent back in 2001.
Recipient is reported to be Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Mississippi).
I know nobody likes raisins, but really, it does seem to be going a bit over-board here...
It's sent to Roger Wicker, according to AP.
Someone's been watching Breaking Bad....
OMG, is this for real? I don't believe it.
Some Democrat should have spread the rumor the envelope contained naked lesbian sex pictures of Hillary Clinton.
Most of the Republican Senators would be dead by now.
You in danger, gurl!
R19, were you around during the fall of 2001? There were anthrax scares directly after 9/11. This seems to be reminiscent of that.
Great. As if those assholes in the Senate need an excuse to get out of work.
This is the end. I just booked a first class flight on the Concorde to Turkey. I bought a slutty outfit. I'm going to take as many Turkish loads as possible before the world explodes like the cock of cage meat on his first night out of prison after serving a 22 year sentence for check forgery.
