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