Samuel Wurzelbacher emitted one of his periodic publicity-grunts the other day while campaigning in Prescott AZ for Republican state House candidate and pointing-guns-at-people enthusiast Lori Klein. Since the self-designated Raging Id of Conservative America found himself in Arizona, he apparently thought it a good location to say something inflamatory about Mexicans, so he said this:
“I’m running for Congress. How many congressmen or people running for Congress have you heard, put a fence up and start shooting? None? Well you heard it here first. Put troops on the border and start shooting, I bet that solves our immigration problem real quick.”
To everyone’s complete surprise, many found the comments offensive, while a few nodded and praised Wurzelbacher for his refreshing honesty, because murderous bigotry is part of the great American dialogue, isn’t it?
Here is video of Wurzelbacher saying the thing, and several Arizona polical figures responding to the thing:
We mostly just want to hug Meghan McCain for saying, in a media environment rife with selective editing,
“When you’re making statements like that, it’s cheap and it’s easy and it will get a lot of attention very quickly. But anything that comes cheap and easy probably isn’t that interesting and isn’t going to last.”
She knows EXACTLY what you filthy-minded blog people are going to do with that.
