This HAS to be a joke
Posted by Jill | 7:30 AM
I realize that teabaggers can be so ridiculous it's funny, but this has performance art written all over it, as a C-Span caller asks Republican Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming if he prayed hard enough for Robert Byrd to die:

If it ISN'T a joke, but a serious caller, than we are in more trouble than we realized. And even if it is a joke, Barrasso's reaction, or rather, non-reaction, to the idea of praying for someone to die, means we are in more trouble than we realized.

What I'd like to know is why, whether the caller was serious or not, didn't C-SPAN hit the kill switch.

I heard that on Mike Malloy last night - it HAS to be a joke. If's it's not, I'm moving to Canada.

You mean if I keep praying that Cheney dies, I'm a bad person?
