Tea Party speaker wants Sen. Patty Murray to 'get hung'.

More people attend UFO Conventions than attend your average Tea Party rally, but Fox News continues to insist that the Tea Party protests are the greatest threat Obama faces and that they represent "the real people".

But, every time I see anything involving this group of ageing white protesters, they seem to be becoming more extremist in their rhetoric by the minute.

Here's the latest from a rally in Asotin, Washington, which is in the far eastern reaches of the state:

"How many of you have watched the movie Lonesome Dove?," asked one 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."
We've already had Tancredo declaring that Obama was elected because "we do not have a civics, literacy test before people can vote in this country" and now we hear calls for people to be hung.

This movement simply gets uglier and more irresponsible by the day.
