Ah, so this is how you get Republican approval: Republican Tea Party favorite, Jesse Kelly won the Republican nomination primary last night to fill the seat left vacant by the resignation of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ).
Kelly who was Giffords’ 2010 Congressional opponent held a June 12 gun event that was billed as follows on the Pima County Republican website:
“Get on Target for Victory in November Help remove Gabrielle Giffords from office Shoot a fully automatic M15 with Jesse Kelly.”
Kelly’s comments occurred after failed Governor Sarah Palin’s dubious comments toward Gabby Giffords.
Jesse Kelly, was never bothered by Sarah Palin’s controversial remarks, instead, he amped up the lack of civility.
But, this type of political discourse, as lacking as it is, is acceptable in the Tea Party’s eyes. Hell, look at had-been rocker Ted Nugent, whose recent violent remarks were cheered on at an NRA convention.
Better yet, look at who they nominated to fill Gabby Giffords’ seat:
Can we get some adults in office now please? I know, I ask a lot.
