Obama supporter celebrates victory by leaving dead pig in Romney t-shirt at Manhattan Beach GOP HQ

I love bacon as much as the next red-blooded American. But I’m not sure this was that kind of gift.

KABC-TV:

A dead pig clad in a Mitt Romney T-shirt was left at a Republican campaign office in Manhattan Beach…

“I thought it was a dead body because of the way he approached it,” said Manhattan Beach resident Andy Gaeta. “And then when he lifted the shirt, he saw the head wrapped in barbed wire and it’s cut in half, the whole skull was. It looked like something from a butcher’s market…”

To one Manhattan Beach resident, the disturbing display suggests political attacks during the election took their toll on the community.

“That is representative of something that kind of turns me off to this whole political system and this recent election and how divided it’s kind of made us all,” said Manhattan Beach resident Tucker Heaton.

Gee. Ya think? That was exactly the idea, and it worked.

But I’m sure a lot of people have no problem with stuff like this. Demonize, dehumanize, repeat.

Once again: The only person angrier than a liberal who just lost is a liberal who just won.

P.S. Patterico channels our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters:

According to sources I just made up, Big Media types quickly agreed: The Republican Party needs to take a long, hard look at itself. When good Democrats are pushed to the point where they have no choice but to express their political views by slaughtering a defenseless animal and dumping it at their opponents’ front door — well, it really says something about the GOP.

I blame Bush.
