    After Tea Party rallies waving guns and shows racial slurs on signs, this is the next logical step.
    Let's hear what the Tea Party says:
    "Our nation was founded on violence. The option is on the table. I don't think that we should ever remove anything from the table as it relates to our liberties and our freedoms." —Tea Party-backed Texas GOP congressional candidate Stephen Broden, suggesting the violent overthrow of the U.S. government if Republicans don't win at the ballot box, interview with Dallas's WFAA-TV, Oct. 21, 2010

    I just hope this person really was a nut job, and not someone that was just trying to test security.

    Yeah they're imaginary alright. It's easy to pretend something doesn't exist when it doesn't affect you. Ask GZ if they were imaginary, they donated money to his defense.

    Man...you GOPers/Teatrolls are truly uncreative in your fake and baseless outrage.

    Let me help you: "Oh sure...when someone hops the WH's borders, he's all over it."

    Incredibly stupid...but at least it would have been closer to , albeit it not quite, clever.

    Well, I've decided to be come a Liberatarian today, so I don't care about this, or anything else: where's my weed? Are we in Colorado yet?

    Since their map-reading ( or any reading) skills are not that good, I disagree.

    Whoa, dude, have you started to calm down yet, or are you still on that clock tower with a rifle? Seriously, tom, you need to lighten up about the whole Libertarian thing.

    Man oh man, Real TP, do you misread me. I sent a message yesterday that didn't get posted saying that I apologized if I misinterpreted your comment and added that perhaps I should look in the mirror. I really didn't realize that's what you were doing. As evidence that I have learned, read my post on the dude that hopped the fence.

    Smith, learn how to read. You mentioned the klan, not the GOP. I read often. And when GZ was arrested, the klan not the GOP, unless you consider them one and the same, donated money for his defense. Google it.

    Good one Bill from GA!!
