So. This is really where we’re at now:


Ronald Derisi, of Smithtown, was scheduled to appear Friday at a federal court on Long Island. He is 74.  Federal prosecutors are not naming the senators who received the threatening messages.

A call to Derisi’s residence seeking comment rang unanswered.  It wasn’t immediately clear whether he had an attorney.

Capitol Police say Derisi called the senators from a pre-paid cellphone and left threatening voicemails before and after Kavanaugh’s contentious confirmation this month.

Ronald Derisi sounds like a real peach.

All snark aside, this is unacceptable. It was only last year that Rep. Steve Scalise was almost murdered for his politics. The violence — and the threats of violence — have to end before someone really does end up dead.
