Tea partiers in Virginia have second thoughts on whether to burn Democratic congressmen in effigy, according to the local chairman:
I still would like to do it, but it’s still up in the air at this point. We’ve already started stacking firewood and building the effigy…we will have a bonfire. Burning someone in effigy was just gonna be part of it.
The local guy concedes they’ve been getting a “lot of flack” since they announced the effigy-burning party.
