While the hostage crisis in New Hampshire was underway, it was interesting to see the reaction on some of the right and left blogs. For example, on the conservative side, Ace Of Spades, the recent winner of the Web Blogs Best Conservative blog, and widely considered the most R rated of the conservative blogs, typical reaction was:
Thoughts and prayers go out. Hope this ends quickly and safely.
He's asking to speak to Hillary. Hopefully it's just some random nut that they can take down before he hurts anyone.
Damn, best wishes to the people being held hostage. Good luck to the NH State Police in getting this wrapped up safely and quickly.
When there was a comment such as
Ok, since I'm an inconsiderate bastard, I'll put this out there. How about a pool on whether this guy is on the extreme right or extreme left. I'm betting the left; an anti-war fucktard with no sense of irony.There was a quick reply such as:
Not now, okay? The why and who doesn't matter right now except as it helps the cops deal with this. Any violence in the political system threatens us all.
We can figure all the rest out later, right now the only important thing is the safety of these two people.
Over at Michelle Malkin, very similar comments.
Now compare that to what was posted at liberal blogs, and remember, it is a Democratic candidate's office where this is happening, not a Republican.
Over at Think Progress, the first 9 comments:

Watch Fock Snooze try to pawn this off as an Obama backer, or more likely, a Hillary “Oh, I’m a victim” stunt

Or will Faux claim it is blowback from retired gay Generals?

Ah, so this is how the RiechWingers are gonna react to Hillary running for Pres, can’t say I didn’t see this one coming. They are desperate pyschos that think guns and aggression are the answer to their plight.

One would expect this from bloggers with names like Age of Rifles, or some other dumbshit handle…

Over at Democratic Underground, 4 of the first 6 posts were deleted because they were inappropriate even for DU. I can not imagine what it takes to have a comment deleted on that board.
