Here’s the latest evidence that nothing has changed in post-Tucson America: A person at a Tuesday town hall with Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) got up and asked, “who is going to shoot President Obama?” The exact wording of the question is not clear because, the Athens Banner- Herald reports, there was a lot of noise at the event. Perhaps more significant than the question was the response of the crowd and Broun, who is a member of the Tea Party Caucus and one of the most right-wing members of Congress. The question prompted a “big laugh” from the crowd, in Oglethorpe County, Georgia, according to the Banner-Herald. Broun, for his part, did not object to the question.
