There was less laughter – although plenty of picture-taking – of an outhouse labeled “Obama Presidential Library” parked outside Missoula’s Hilton Garden Inn, where the convention took place.
Nothing on the outhouse indicated who was responsible for it, although it made an appearance in the Memorial Day parade in Corvallis in Ravalli County.
The outhouse was painted to look as though it had been riddled by bullets.
Inside, a fake birth certificate for Barack Hussein Obama made reference to the disproven controversy over the president’s origins. It was stamped “Bull––.” A graffito advised “For a Good Time call 800-Michelle (crossed out), Hillary (crossed out) and Pelosi (circled in red.)”
State GOP Chairman Will Deschamps of Missoula said he didn’t know who’d brought the outhouse, but dismissed it as “a sideshow.”
“It’s not something I’m going to agonize over,” he said. “Some of that stuff is not real good taste. We do have a president of the United States, and we have to honor that.”
Virtual gun violence, birtherism, racism, sexism - what more could a red-blooded, freedom-loving 'Murcan patriot ask for? It's a shame no picture is provided.
From comments at the link:
The same outhouse was in the Memorial Day parade in Corvallis, and it was as offensive there as it is now. David Hurtt, former Republican candidate for Ravalli County commissioner and close friend of the editor of the First Edition, Gene Williams, is responsible for the outhouse.
Sorry but it is not "a sideshow." It's a nurtured mental illness that has lost all respect for American and what it stands for.
Your raffle might as well included cop-killer bullets and kkk hoods for all the dignity you have.
So as you engage your damage control machine, just remember that every negative thing you say and do undermines the very foundation of this country and plants the seeds of civil unrest in today's youth.
Frankly, repubs, you are nothing more then drug dealers preying on the weak minds, and unraveling the fabric of civilized society through your actions. Period!
I've often said that when you think of the Rethugs, it's virtually impossible to be cynical enough. It's also impossible to underestimate their integrity or the thought processes of those hwo have bee taken in by their propaganda.
Wow - we are really screwed.
