I'm astonished that a public figure can make a statement like that and not immediately be drummed out of the party for it. Even suggesting crap like that is incredibly dangerous.

It's so cute when they eat their own.

I'm curious how he'd respond to being called a "carpetbagger" since that was his entire campaign focused on against Warren

To be fair: there are like 1000 NH State Reps. and they're all looney tunes.

Why?  They do it all the time.


And it's no surprise that it's a Republican threatening to start killing people if a less crazy Republican gets elected.

No, the Tomahawk Chop was also a centerpiece of the Brown campaign

True.

What the hell is with the senate candidates who lose end up going full speed fail when they campaign? I mean a close race is one thing but he went cuckoo bananas right off the bat

Iove how he says "we're not here to threaten anybody"...

Then threatens armed insurrection.

If this much crazy is getting elected, I'd hate to know how much crazy is voting for those sociopaths.

"If things continue the way they are, there may be a day or a time where firearms and ammo are necessary," he continued. "It happened in the Revolutionary War. I'd like to think we're not there yet, but as things continue to unravel, that may be the next step."

Oh, it's one of those assholes.

So, if he loses here, or even wins here and then loses a later election, what state will he go to next?

No it isn't. The one consistent truth about the people who threaten armed revolt is that none of them have the stones to ever actually do it.

According to wiki, there's 398.  Still a mind-bloggingly huge amount.

"If things continue the way they are, there may be a day or a time where firearms and ammo are necessary,"

But it's OK folks, because...

"We're not here to threaten anybody,"

We're just going to make the threat and move on, mmmmkay?

Based on the headline, I assumed it was a sore-loser Democrat. But now we've got screeching about Second Amendment Remedies for losing a farking primary?

I'm live in NH, follow State politics fairly closely, and have never heard of this bozo. The State has shifted into the Blue  column with an all Women Top Political Offices, with only one of them being a GOPer. She is the most unworthy Pol in the State at the moment. She was anointed by the very mealy mouthed Judd Gregg. She won by default, and then NH folks heard her voice, and saw her throw her lot in with those two Militarist Clown, McCain and Graham. She's toast  and you hear it in her voice every time she speaks public. You can literally see the fear in the sound of her voice, which is saying something.
Now if we could just take the State Senate which the GOPers held onto by 1 or 2 votes, and they now stand in the way of the State accepting Medicaid expansion under the ACA. Those GOPer Senate Pricks are costing me a bloody fortune in egregious Insurance premiums(16-19K per year, or $350-$400 per WEEK!!!), which I can't continue to pay with an income of 50-60K per year.

Isn't that like at least an eighth of the state population?
 
2013-12-17 10:27:34 AM  
Before we blow this out of proportion, it's important that we remember that, despite all his flaws and apparent lack of any moral fiber whatsoever, Scott Brown drives a truck.
 
2013-12-17 10:28:26 AM  
we're not here to threaten anyone, however we may have to murder government officials with our firearms

For comparison, I checked Massachusetts.  There are only 158 there.  Forgot to mention, NH has 2 vacant seats, and so does MA.  Also from the NH wiki:
<i>On average, each legislator represents about 3,300 residents. If the same level of representation were present in the U.S. Congress that body would have approximately 99,000 members, according to current population estimates. </i>

Throwing temper tantrums is the one thing Republicans can still do well. You may not know how they'll throw one, but believe you me, if they have half an excuse, they'll throw one.

An uprising against an elected official you're not happy about is ridiculous enough, but an uprising against the person going to represent your party IN an election? That's just failing democracy repeatedly.

Yes, but we are in some sort of HMO with Athem BlueCrossBlueShield which has a monopoly in this state

I just don't get how someone can run for office in one state, lose, move to another, and immediately run away... seems like you should have to of lived in said state for a decade before being allowed to do so.

It's an old George Carlin routine: The truth of America is somewhere between "Live Free or DIE!" and "Famous Potatoes."
