I don't know what's more disturbing about the tea party clip shown below -- the quote that grabbing the headlines...

A tea party gathering in Asotin County, Washington turned more than a bit ugly on Saturday when a featured speaker actually called for the hanging of Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash)....

"How many of you have watched the movie Lonesome Dove?," asked an unidentified female speaker from the podium. "What happened to Jake when he ran with the wrong crowd? What happened to Jake when he ran with the wrong crowd. He got hung. And that's what I want to do with Patty Murray."

... or the image that appears in the clip just after the woman speaks:

It's horrifying enough that these teabaggers have a hearty chuckle over the thought of lynching Murray, but then we get "Emasculate the black guy!" Gosh, what does that bring to mind?

What great patriots these folks are.
