As Tempting As It May Be

The top student official for the College Republicans at the University of Texas tweeted today that, while the idea of assassinating President Obama was “tempting,” she would rather no one did so he can go down in history for ruining the country instead.

At 2:29 p.m. ET, UT’s Lauren E. Pierce wrote: “Y’all as tempting as it may be, don’t shoot Obama. We need him to go down in history as the WORST president we’ve EVER had! #2012.”

Pierce, the president of the College Republicans at UT Austin, told ABC News the comment was a “joke” and that the “whole [shooting incident] was stupid.” Giggling, she said that an attempted assassination would “only make the situation worse.”

“Insofar as she’s a representative [of the College Republicans], maybe it shouldn’t be said, but she’s made a positive statement in a way, ” said Cassie Wright, the group’s vice president.

“I don’t really see anything wrong with it,” Wright added. “It’s just a personal comment, not representative of any group. Just freedom of speech, you know?”

Just freedom of speech, ya' know? Just like its my freedom of speech to tell you to eat shit. It's just a personal comment. Not representative of any group.

Conservatives aren't funny.

By the way, who the hell writes "proud Zionist" on their twitter bio? Good luck with that.
