He should be jailed or fined because if enough people keeping talking about it and instigating it some fool is bound to act upon it as well!

Enough with those who continue to spew racist remarks! Or who try to incite harm to others!!!!!!!!!!

We are in the year 2009 and people you may not like minorities but they are here to stay! So get over it or maybe you need to go steal another country!!!!!!

So anyway I thought the one about Hinkley was funny. I must be a bad person. I think I'll sit in a corner someplace. All alone. And giggle.

Isn't this Country in enough trouble without worrying about what some people are emailing to each other? Lighten up. Sheesh.

'steal another country'. Listen to me good, you loud mouthed d-bag, if you don't like how the US was formed, then go back to the mud hut where you came from and blast the US from there. Hey dingleberry, you see what's happening to those dissenters in Iran? It ain't so bad in the US, afterall, now is it? assclown.

Wow ... where were all these civic minded people when books and movies were being written about assassinating Bush? Bill Maher joked about it.

We won't know it was a joke unless he's waterboarded. If he was brownskinned and worn a turban, he'd be in Gitmo before his family noticed he's late getting hom from work.

This guy is not in my addie, but I have recieved everyone of those jokes mainly through yahoo groups messages.

I consider them harmless and delete them. I don't see the big deal, minorities send jokes about whites too. They don't offend me. I know where the delete button is.

These right-wingers devastated this nation over the past 8 years with one failed policy after another and then when the American people wake up and come out in record numbers to kick the GOP out of power and landslide the first African-American into the Presidency... they fantasize, joke about, and wish for this President to be assassinated.

Right-wingers are unpatriotic and evil; and the Secret Service should take down anyone who even jokes about something like that. This is just more proof why we should never allow the right to have any power in this country. The majority of them are ignorant, bigoted and racist. And on top of all of that, they can't govern.

LOL, it was a freaking joke. It was not like the guy was sitting there planning it. Also they were forwarded to him. Also the SS (get it) has a lot more to do than dealing with this. They have to guard the TARP money, Junker car money ect.., LMAO.

Lance, I can agree the Pullin'-a-Palin joke was in bad taste but do you really put this tasteless joke on the same level as talking about assassinations?.

Come on, you have to see the difference in severity. Dontcha betcha think?

Thank God Atwater is just a blip in the map of California. That being said, this guy should do the decent thing and resign. Sounds like he is a loose cannon.

Carey529Bubba, don't get me wrong. I'm Palin's staunchest supporter. I think the GOP could have no finer candidate for the presidency in 2012, unless maybe they could get Pee-Wee Herman to run.

This stuff is common, I don't know why it is an issue, but I do, it's because the president is Black.

The odds are not slim that these same things were going on under Bush, Clinton and every other White President.

To be fair and balanced, why doesn't the media go digging into Black peoples emails to see what all was said of Bush and Clinton?

Why doesn't the recipients of the Bush and Clinton oriented emails sent out by Blacks tell the media?

Even if the media were informed of these things would they make a story out of it?

Will the media continue down the slanted path that gives the false illusion that racism is by White's only?
