idaho republican: "i would never
support him being assasinated"

idaho republican gubernatorial candidate rex rammell says he was just joking when he suggested hunting president barack obama.

from the twin falls, idaho times-news:
An Idaho Republican gubernatorial hopeful insists he was joking when he said he'd buy a license to hunt President Barack Obama.

[Rex] Rammell, slated to run against incumbent C.L. "Butch" Otter in the May 2010 GOP primary, made the comment at a Republican rally Tuesday in Twin Falls where talk turned to the state's planned wolf hunt, for which hunters must purchase an $11.50 wolf tag.

When an audience member shouted about "Obama tags," Rammell responded, "The Obama tags? We'd buy some of those."

Rammell told the Times-News newspaper he disagrees with Obama's politics but was only joking. Rammell says, "I was just being sarcastic. I would never support him being assassinated."
support it? don't be silly. but joke about it with friends? who doesn't!?

  1. Making a threat like that is a federal offense. If someone said that publicly about Bush during his regime, the storm troopers would have been at his doorstep.
