    Tea party planner says she made 'hanging' remarks

    Tea party planner says she made 'hanging' remarks - Yahoo! News

    An organizer of a weekend "tea party" gathering in eastern Washington said Thursday she was the speaker who drew applause from the crowd by calling for one of the state's Democratic U.S. senators to be hanged.

    But Dianne Capps of Clarkston said her remark about Sen. Patty Murray was taken out of context, and what she meant was that Murray should be voted out of office in November.

    "Nobody had a rope to hang Patty Murray," she said. Capps' comment Saturday at the Lewis & Clark Tea Party Patriots meeting at the county fairgrounds in Asotin, Wash., were captured by television station KLEW of Lewiston, Idaho. While speaking to the crowd from the podium, Capps said Murray should suffer the same fate as the character Jake in the western "Lonesome Dove."
    .....so she talks about a hanging in a movie....then she says she meant she wanted to vote somebody out of office.... If she is going to make excuses for her extremism, she should at least make the excuses sensical. This just doesn't make any sense. Why would you bring up such a ridiculous example? This is not even a gaffe. Just shows the extremist ideas of some of the prominent faces in the Tea Party.

    There's no way she meant it literally though, right?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    ..... Considering some of the crazy people who have been taken under the wing of this "Tea Party" I really do not know. Maybe she said it in a moment of excitement but it is still quite the telling statement.

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    When I saw the comment, it made me cringe. If she was speaking metaphorically, she should have chosen more carefully.

    Anarchists? Sure. But can you tell us how this relates to a leader within the Tea Party saying they want to hang an elected representative? I guess you won't. You'll just keep posting more silly pictures in hopes that the comparison sticks. Can you show us a single Democratic leader supporting these anarchist posters? I want to see it. I want to see somebody like Nancy Pelosi saying they support killing soldiers. I bet you won't. Why don't you go feed your hamsters? You keep feeding them straws. They look hungry.

    Re: Tea party planner says she made 'hanging' remarks

    The tide is turning in Washington State......
    More & more people are turning away from the tax & spend Democrat incumbents.....
    Probably a poor choice of words, but Ive talked to several people who generally don't vote & they will actively be voting against the Democrat candidate, any Democrat candidate......
    This state is basically divided into red & blue geographically, but the former fence sitters will vote Republican this time...
    Her blatent pandering to minorities with regard to illegal immigrants has turned a lot of now jobless people against her.....
    Cantwell got lucky in '08 with her timing, Murraay is on the chopping block & it's about time.......
    The whole upside of Obama winning is that we were able to get rid of a bunch of the crappy politicians that were stinking up the joint....
    They left Washington in a $3B hole, now they shape national policy......
