    If they really were a hoax, will the media report it as such?

    I'm not sure how else you would characterize this.

    I mean, pipe bombs that are not operational and have a timer?

    Who the hell has mail bombs with a timer?

    It is true that we have seen a lot of hoaxes over the last couple of years as it pertains to racist graffiti, etc., and that these things have been used to rally certain political bases.

    Of course, it is a bit much to think that fake bombs were made...

    But there have been fake bomb scares -- there was an Israeli teen who did dozens of fake bomb threats across the United States, presumably because doing so maintains an environment where people believe that the threat of anti-semitism is real.

    There's no way to know, though, but this is a very opportune time for a bomb scare, and it will rally a particular base.

    Regarldess, whether it is fake or real, it does not reflect on Democrats or Republicans, Left or Right, as a whole.
