Discussion Topic: On Buying “Obama Tags”
By Dave Hurteau
Remember Rex Rammell? His name was all over this blog for a while in 2006 when the state of Idaho ordered that his escaped domestic elk be shot. Rammell was kind of vocal about that decision. And in case you’re wondering what he’s saying these days, here’s the latest from an AP Story on AOL News:
Rex Rammell, a long-shot candidate slated to run against incumbent C.L. "Butch" Otter in the May 2010 GOP primary, [was at] a Republican rally Tuesday in Twin Falls where talk turned to the state's planned wolf hunt. . . .
When an audience member shouted a question about "Obama tags," Rammell responded, "The Obama tags? We'd buy some of those."
Rammell told The Associated Press Thursday he sees no reason to apologize for the comment because it was just a joke.
"What I would say to all my Democrat Idahoans: Take a deep breath and relax," he said. "We're not going to go out and hunt Obama."
