Green Room

Maybe Wicker never told him Thankyewverahmuch?

The already strange story about the ricin-letter scare on Capitol Hill got weirder today.  We already knew that Paul Kevin Curtis makes his living at least in part as an Elvis impersonator.  We didn’t know his clientele included Senator Roger Wicker — one of his targets:

Sen. Roger Wicker said he had once hired and met the Elvis impersonator who was charged Thursday with sending poison-laced letters to President Barack Obama and the senator.

Wicker, a Mississippi Republican, told reporters the suspect, Paul Kevin Curtis of Corinth, lived not far from his hometown of Tupelo. The senator had briefly spoken with Curtis a decade ago at a social gathering he and other friends had hosted back when Wicker was serving in the House.

“He’s an entertainer. He’s an Elvis impersonator. He entertained at a party that my wife and I helped give for a young couple that was getting married. He was quite entertaining,” Wicker told reporters at the Capitol on Thursday. “A number of couples gave a party and he was the entertainer and we kicked in on our share.”

But did they kick in enough for a tip?

Ricin guy = Democrat/Progressive.

Just like the Unabomber.
Just like Dr. Nidal Hassan.
Just like Jared Lee Loughner.
Just like James Holmes.
Just like Christopher Dorner.
Just like Dr. Gosnell.

Do we see a pattern emerging here?

I am all for Gun Control. In measured steps, that is. First, we take all guns away from Democrats/Progressives and incarcerate them for life if they are found in possession of one. Then we wait 10 years and see if that drives down crime, etc.

Think of the *children*. Even a single life could be spared.

Democrats are dangerous. If i had to choose between an NRA member and a Democrat to be my neighbor, it’s no-contest. Democrats are just too unstable.
