Congressman Mark Kirk Suggests Shooting Illinois Governor

April 16, 2009

When I wrote  in some comments on this blog about the absurdity of the tea parties, and the vile emotions that are conjured up by such rabble-rousing groups, I forgot to mention the angry white men who provoke the simple-minded  masses.

Here is another example.  This time from Congressman Mark Kirk.

I think that the decision to raise taxes by 50 percent in Illinois is political suicide,” Kirk said of Quinn’s proposal to raise the tax rate to 4.5 percent from 3 percent, coupled with an increase in the personal deduction. “I think the people of Illinois are ready to shoot anyone who is going to raise taxes by that degree.”

I am sure that all my conservative friends (readers) will step up and pounce on this truly disturbing statement.  Or am I to assume that this is the style of political speech that we can expect from the party that got soundly booted from national government?

 Wonder if  Mark Kirk needs a new fitting for a brown shirt?
