She must have been lonely

…and wanted a visit from some of those hunky Secret Service dudes:

Hours after Pennsylvania State Police arrested a 21-year-old Idaho man for allegedly firing a semi-automatic rifle at the White House, the top student official for the College Republicans at the University of Texas tweeted that the idea of assassinating President Obama was “tempting.”

At 2:29 p.m. ET, UT’s Lauren E. Pierce wrote: “Y’all as tempting as it may be, don’t shoot Obama. We need him to go down in history as the WORST president we’ve EVER had! #2012.”

Pierce, the president of the College Republicans at UT Austin, told ABC News the comment was a “joke” and that the “whole [shooting incident] was stupid.” Giggling, she said that an attempted assassination would “only make the situation worse.

Republicans, it’s your dull-eyed, feeble-minded, slow-witted Future, giggling brainlessly over assassination jokes.

Hard as it might be to believe, there could well come a time when the gong show currently beclowning itself in the GOP presidential primaries actually looks good.

    Y’all are being ironical I’m sure about this Souhern beauty pageant contestant who twittered about whacking our Commander in Chief. After all, calling her lonely is redundant being a UT Republican and all since that class of politicos must be as rare as hens teeth there in the Peoples Republic of Austin.

    Believe it or not, her replacement is even worse.

    If I could afford to move, I’d be hightailing it out of Texas pronto.

    “Jokes” about assassinating George W. Bush were a dime a dozen when he was president. Hell, they made a movie about his fictional assassination:

      Yes, I remember it, I even posted about it and called it something like “a new low in Bush Derangement Syndrome”.

      You know, saying “You guys do it too” long ago stopped being a valid justification for dumbness from either side. Yet amazingly, I continually see the same lame excuse offered up by lefties and righties alike when they get called on some issue.

      The political dialogue will never mature until we start admitting when we’re wrong and dumb instead of trying to make excuses for it or turn it on its head. Just a thought, cause I know you’re a thoughtful guy ;)

        I agree that “the other guys are worse” is no defense. Bad behaviour is not excused because others do it. This particular case is strange because Texans should be particularly sensitive about presidential assassinations. The city of Dallas is still, to this day, smarting from 1963.

        But pointing out the fact that both sides misbehave does give perspective. In particular, it helps prevent anyone from thinking that their party is on the side of the angels. Politics is a very rough game in the U.S., and if one side is more ethical than the other I have failed to notice it.

          Exactly. Being so blindly partisan as to believe one side is always right and the other always wrong is the mistake that keeps us from having productive dialogue.

          I think it’s more mutually-beneficial to look at it like this: we all want the same things, basically, we just have different ideas about how to achieve them. So, with that in common, there must be compromise solutions that work for everyone.
