Arizona Republicans release bullet riddled wanted poster attacking Democrat challenging John McCain.

Courtesy of Think Progress:  

Arizona Republicans, who are scrambling to help Sen. John McCain win the “fight of his political life,” unveiled a poster this week depicting the face of McCain’s Democratic challenger surrounded by bullet holes. 

The Wild West-themed poster accuses Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ) — who is polling neck and neck with McCain — of not holding enough public events during her campaign. 

The image has outraged many in the state, as it comes just five years after another Arizona Democratic congresswoman was shot in the head at a public event.

Yes and we all remember the image that preceded THAT shooting.

In fact Gabby Giffords released this statement to Think Progress to express her disgust: 

“In a state and country that know the toll of gun violence too well, there is no room for invoking the use of firearms in our politics,” she said, in a statement emailed to ThinkProgress. “Our political leaders have the responsibility to avoid a descent into messages that might suggest that elections are settled anywhere else than at the ballot box.”

Damn Republicans are either the slowest learners on the planet, or they simply to not care if they foment gun violence as part of our political process.

    This is awful. McCain has been around too long, and the GOP is sick. Just sick. If we needed are son to 'take away their guns,' we'd sure have it. Unfortunately, they all get to keep their freakin' penis extenders, but they do NOT get to pretend this is not a call to arms. I am ashamed of people who are so desperate for power that they threaten anyone not on 'their side.' That is pitiful. The GOP us pitiful.

    Americans are tired of innocents literally getting sprayed by the 2nd Amendment.

  3. "Republicans ... foment gun violence as part of our political process"
    This is a feature, not a bug. Republican men believe that one day they will be heroes shouting Wolverines! and mowing down all the Russkies/browns and grateful, gorgeous, scantily-clad women will be begging them for sex. Republican women believe, well, nothing that makes any sense.

    That headline alone made me say some terrible words. At long last, they have NO decency.

    A poster like that one raises questions that answer themselves...
    Do the Republicans realize just how dangerous a message that poster sends?
    Yes... yes they do.
    Are the Republicans really that irresponsible?
    Yes... yes they are.
    Are there no depths to which they will sink to win an election?
    No... none.
    If a poster such as that one influences you toward voting for the Republican - then you really need to sit down and evaluate your priorities and values.
    And you might want to seek some counseling.

    I sent this blog post to the Southern Poverty Law Center and asked when they will classfy GOP has a
    Can you imagine if Grampa McCain face was on there? He would have a shitfit!

    I've seen national polls that are showing McCain winning his race by a large margin. Who are we suppose to believe for crying out loud?

    I so hope he loses his bid especially after seeing his supporters publish something like shown above!

    Our country is a fucking mess!

    If Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ) appears at your rally, shopping mall or grocery store.... RUN!

    No telling if Sarah Palin, her drunk son Track or STD riddled Barstool will show up with their Uzis, Ar-17s and Glocks.

    That poster makes me even more nauseated than the SarahPac image - if that is even possible. It does not even imply subtlety. John McCain needs to denounce this heinous act ASAP before another tragedy ensues or society must consider him complicit in his silence!

    I have been donating to Ann Kirkpatrick's campaign. As an Alaskan, it is the least I can do to help reverse the cray cray that was unleashed on the world when McCain picked the McCray Cray that was festering up here.

    So, even after Reagan, even after W. Bush, you guys are still having a hard time believing that the Republicans are diehard evil bastards? Just what will it take to convince you that they are batshit armageddon crazy? A Trump presidency? Why in the hell do you think they have so damned much energy to go after Hillary for thirty years? Crazy people do shit like that. They don't let things go. They harangue until they drive us crazy. It's called indoctrination. The war people use it to reeducate people. We are almost in the hands of crazy people yet we vote them in. So what does that make us?

    There are some politicians who I'm sick and tired of seeing, but I'd never suggest anything close to these two morons graphics.

    When is Wayne La Pierre running for office? I may be nudged into changing my mind. s/
