i am in a state of early retirement, i love sports as well as politics, so i keep busy with a sports site as well as listening to a local sports radio station.
so, i get to express myself in forums that allow my acidic observations to be expressed, sometimes causing a problem as i live in the most tea baggiest state of them all, south carolina.
i hit on this bad joke yesterday, posted it on a sports forum, it lasted somewhat longer than i expected, as they frown on political commentary or whatever. this morning i called the local sports show, and at the end of some sports related exchanges, i threw the joke in at the end, it left the two hosts in a state of shock.....now, as to the joke and the basis of this rather inane posting....my wife does not think it is funny, neither did most of the folks on the receiving end...but here goes:

Though this has not gotten much coverage, I ran across this item early this morning:
Charlotte man accused of threatening Obama
Jerry M. Blanchard, 48, was being held Friday in the Mecklenburg County Jail on the charge of threatening to kill, kidnap or injure a major candidate for president on July 15 and July 28, according to a criminal complaint filed Aug. 1 by a U.S. Secret Service agent.
The affidavit attached to the complaint by Agent Sean Leddy and unsealed this week said that witnesses told federal authorities they overheard the 48-year-old Blanchard threatening to assassinate the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee on two occasions in July.
One witness said he was eating breakfast at a Waffle House in Charlotte with a friend when Blanchard approached and started talking about Obama.
"Obama and his wife are never going to make it to the White House. He needs to be taken out and I can do it in a heartbeat," Leddy quoted Blanchard as saying. The witness also heard Blanchard discuss his intention to purchase a pistol from a gun shop and contacted federal authorities.
