And the Threats Keep Coming….

GOP hopeful jokes about ‘Obama tags’

‘I would never support him being assassinated,’ Idaho candidate says

BOISE, Idaho – An Idaho Republican gubernatorial hopeful insists he was joking when he said he’d buy a license to hunt President Barack Obama.

Rex Rammell, a former elk rancher 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.

Talk at the meeting turned to the state’s planned wolf hunt, for which hunters must purchase an $11.50 wolf tag.

When an audience member shouted a question about “Obama tags,” Rammell responded, “The Obama tags? We’d buy some of those.”

Rammell told the Times-News newspaper the comment was “just a joke.”

“I would never support him being assassinated,” he said.

Then don’t suggest it, shit-for-brains.

  1. Girl, you sure know how to tag these things! 🙂

    Remember how folks used to get tossed for any chance at a Bush really for wearing anti-war t-shirts? I don’t understand how the gun toters are getting in these days. They’ve already proved what they have for brains just from showing up with a gun.
