Why Do Conservatives Think Their “Shoot Obama” Jokes are Cute?

Why Do Conservatives Think Their “Shoot Obama” Jokes are Cute? We got this one from Dr. Boyce Watkins, one of the premier Black Bloggers of our Day:

On the June 18, 2008 edition of the Don Wade & Roma Morning Show, Rep. Mark Kirk of Illinois’s 10th congressional district, spoke of an hypothetical assassination attempt on Sen. Barack Obama. For those of us who can recall, this would not be the first time a Conservative has spoken of Barack Obama in such terms. Late last month, FOX News Contributor, Liz Trotta, referred to the controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton’s reference to RFK’s assassination, saying, “some are reading it as a suggestion that somebody knock off Osama,” and when corrected by the interviewer, Bill Hemmer, she said, “Obama. Well…both if we could!” To put an end to this, visit yourblackworld.com

Blogging Black’s Response

This behavior is unbecoming of a U. S. Representative and he should not be allowed to retain his seat in the next election. Any viable candidate in his district should have their campaigns bolstered by his ridiculous comments!
