FOX Pundit Wishes for Obama Assassination, Laughs
Source: HP

The incident happen in an exchange with the FOX News anchor. When asked her opinion of the recent scandal surrounding some comments made by Sen. Hillary Clinton, which Trotta described by saying that, "some are reading as a suggestion that somebody knock off Osama." Hemmer quickly corrected Trotta, having noticed that she had said "Osama" when she meant "Obama." At this point, Trotta said, "Obama. Well...both if we could!" Trotta then laughed gleefully.

3. I'd suggest a Secret Service visit, and a no-fly listing.
And a little explanation from them that suggesting someone should knock of a presidential candidate "if we could" while on the air is reason to be put on an FBI watch list and no-fly list.

6. I saw that video
It is horrifying that anyone could utter something like that. I don't see why they would air that.

10. Media Reform is vital to the future of this country. Corporate Media is responsible for a great deal
of what Bush's Unitary Executive has gotten away with. If the Media Elite wanted Impeachment, there'd be Impeachment.

17. Damned liberal media
no doubt trying to drum up sympathy for that guy Osama...Obama...whoever.

Given your apparent newness around here, I will--this time only--choke down my aversion to doing this, and attach a :sarcasm: thingie.

24. When you reply to a posting...
Right above the Subject line, in the "Message Options" area, there's a link to "Smilies lookup table". Click on that and a wonderous world of nice, nasty, heartwarming, and snarky smilies will be revealed to you. Click on the one that fits your mood, and it'll be inserted in your message. Ain't technology grand? :-)

14. This really scares me
The reactionaries are on the march against Obama for sure, and will stop at nothing to keep him from the White House. If something happens to him there's gonna be hell to pay for sure.

16. Yes, it's scary.
Just realizing that there are people among us with such twisted minds is scary enough. To think that this particular woman broadcasts to a large fan base that presumably accepts her words is terrifying.

15. That's the rightwing "family values".
Advocating death is their way of life.

21. TTBOMK, that is a crime! If I talked about wacking her, I'd be guilty of a crime, right?
All you have to do is get it on tape!! Crime solved.

Now, who is going to do something about it under the Bush Junta?
This is another good test of whether we have Justice and Democracy!

22. What next, laughing about overthrowing the Kennedys?
I think I finally realize the one and only good thing about the Bush Junta coming into power in 2000.
They accomplished it without killing a Kennedy!

Every damned one.
