Is this seriously going to be a non-item? Come on, folks! I’m sure that the man will say that it was “merely” a dig at Obama’s position on gun control . . . but I don’t find anything even REMOTELY funny about a white (“CHRISTIAN”) Republican making jokes about someone trying to shoot Senator Obama.
And maybe Field is right . . . maybe it’s true that this country isn’t ready for a black president . . . but I am not giving up just yet . . . even if 68% of people polled on our local right-wing talk radio station didn’t think that this t-shirt was offensive . . . even if I saw with my own eyes the Secret Service swarming all over downtown Grand Rapids when Obama was in town . . .
