‘Joke’ excuse falls flat

The Spokesman-Review

Rex Rammell has the audacity to run for political office. Does he feel this self-appointed position gives him the right to commit treason in public? Where did he get the right to threaten the president of the United States?

How many people arrested for this very same kind of comment said, “I was just joking”? They got caught, they were probably not rich, they were probably not in politics. They probably did not issue another press release the next day pressing the issue and slamming the office of president even further.

Is he looking to win his GOP seat? Is he getting all the publicity he seeks? Wouldn’t Idaho just love to have him being their spokesperson in Washington?
