    Senate candidate under fire for posting grisly images to Facebook

    The TP has a new idiot.

    Dr. Milton Wolf, a U.S. Republican Senate candidate from Kansas, is under fire for posting to his Facebook page a collection of grisly "X-ray images of gunshot fatalities and medical injuries" he acquired as a radiologist and making "macabre jokes" about them online, the Topeka Capital Journal reports.
    The best part is, his cousin is none other than President Barack Hussein Obama II.

    Asked about these posts:

    "I'm not going to play these kinds of gotcha games," he responded before walking away.
    Gotcha games? You put this on the internet YOURSELF, and it's a gotcha game?

    The amount of money spent by GOP benefactors has given SOME of these primary candidates a false sense of security.
    For what's best for our Nation, I feel for the DECENT members of the GOP, the silent majority, who need to become vocal.
    This is how they will attract independents to their general election candidates .

    Kansas is an interesting place.

    One sentence buried in the middle of a long article "......endorsed by groups aligned with Tea Party organizers."

    What does that mean? The Tea Party likes blood and guts?

    Do any of the Liberals believe that a story this damning should have a little more substantial evidence? The guy is insane, but to leap on that single strange sentence as some sort of broad Tea Party descriptor is wrong.

    He's claiming to be a GOP candidate but he's really working for Obama.

    Gotcha.

    Gotcha.
    Uhm, in a weird, I imagine unintended way, aren't most of the TeaPartiers working for either Obama or at the very least Democrats? Seems to me they are very helpful to their enemies. This is just another example.

    Doctors, medical types, EMTs, firemen and cops end up with odd senses of humor. You kinda have to, to survive and stay sane seeing some of what we see. Some of the jokes are indeed macabre and 'black'
    and may fall flat to those who don't understand the context and experiences of such people.

    In short... I haven't seen his page but I doubt this is really such a big deal.

    Thats true but I've never seen anyone describe a decapitation as beautiful

    However, Wolf and others viewing these Facebook postings relentlessly poked fun at the dead or wounded. The gunshot victim, Wolf joked online, wasn't going to complain about the awkward positioning of his head for an X-ray. In a separate Facebook comment, Wolf wrote that an X-ray of a man decapitated by gunfire resembled a wounded alien in a “Terminator” film and that the image offered evidence people “find beauty in different things.”

    Maybe but how did the Tea Party get into this profound discussion?

    Are you saying Obama is a Tea Party member?
