Another Republican Rex Rammell Makes a Fool of Himself

An update to this post. The GOP in Idaho have condemned Rammell's comments. We need more of this. The GOP can't just let the wingnuts take over. They need to stand up to this kind of behavior.

These guys just never quit. Rex Rammell is fringe candidate for governor in Idaho:
Rex Rammell, a former elk rancher 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.

Talk at the meeting turned to the state's planned wolf hunt, for which hunters must purchase an $11.50 wolf tag.
When an audience member shouted a question about "Obama tags," Rammell responded, "The Obama tags? We'd buy some of those." MSNBC
Rammell said it was a joke. But you know, some things are off limits and joking about shooting the president is one of those things. I can't stand the republican party. I know there are some decent republicans out there. I know a few. But as a whole, they're warped and behind the times. The Idaho Statesman doesn't much like Rammell either, who apparently is a lunatic fringe candidate.
