Georgia Rep. Paul Broun: “My Folks Give Inbreeding a Bad Name”
“Haw haw haw, assassinating the president. Now son, you hadn’t oughta be talkin’ lahk that now. That there librul media maht could report it and give folks the wrong idea.”
Rep. Paul Broun (R—Bone Stupid) held a town hall meeting earlier this week in Oglethorpe County, GA. One of his constituents asked “Who’s going to shoot Obama?”
Regardless of what Broun thinks of Obama (and it’s not pretty), he should have at least pretended to be shocked and outraged at his inbred questioner. Broun’s response was:
“The thing is, I know there’s a lot of frustration with this president. We’re going to have an election next year. Hopefully, we’ll elect somebody that’s going to be a conservative, limited-government president that will take a smaller, who will sign a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.”
It’s no accident that Broun’s public events attract a lot of hate-spewing dumber-than-dirt rednecks. Like attracts like. When it comes to hateful rightwing rhetoric, Broun is right there at the top (or bottom). Comparing Obama to Hitler; saying Obama is going to “kill the elderly” with Obamacare and the stimulus package; accusing Democrats of planning to “take over all of society” — Paul Broun has been there, done that.
Way to go, voters.
