The Fun Never Stops in Arkansas

From Raw Story:

The author of a county Republican Party newsletter in Arkansas says that he and other conservatives in the state “most likely won’t try to kill” Republican lawmakers who voted to expand Medicaid under President Barack Obama’s health care reform law.
In the April edition of the Republican Party of Benton County Newsletter, Chris Nogy argued that “this betrayal deserves a quick implementation of my 2nd amendment rights to remove a threat.”
“I don’t feel the same way about the Democrats as bullet backstops as I do about the Republicans who joined them,” Nogy wrote. “We need to let those who will come in the future to represent us [know] that we are serious. The 2nd amendment means nothing unless those in power believe you would have no problem simply walking up and shooting them if they got too far out of line and stopped responding as representatives.”

And there you have it, folks. Today's GOP. If you don't like the way your elected officials vote, in NH, you file criminal complaints against 189 of them.

In Arkansas, you just start shooting.

Arkansas is determinedly bringing the stoopid these days:

"I wonder how many Boston liberals spent the night cowering in their homes wishing they had an AR-15 with a hi-capacity magazine?"

Charlie Pierce had my favorite response to that:

Go put on a pair of shoes and fry me up some squirrel, Gomer.
