Ha ha! We should kill the president! It's funny!
Rex Rammell, a long-shot candidate slated to run against incumbent C.L. ''Butch'' Otter in the May 2010 GOP primary, made the comment at a Republican rally Tuesday in Twin Falls where talk turned to the state's planned wolf hunt, for which hunters must purchase an $11.50 wolf tag. The hunt is due to begin on Tuesday.
When an audience member shouted a question about ''Obama tags,'' Rammell responded, ''The Obama tags? We'd buy some of those.''
Rammell told The Associated Press Thursday he sees no reason to apologize for the comment because it was just a joke.Rape Rex Rammell! What? It's a joke?!?!
Best excuse, ever. I didn't start it. I look forward to Rammell's debate with a five-year-old.
After Rammell's comment was published in the Times-News, he said one person sent him an e-mail indicating he would ask the FBI for an investigation.
Threatening the president can be a felony punishable by five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.''I'm probably safe,'' Rammell said. ''I'm not the one that started the whole thing.''
