Meet the Republican Party: Shery Lanford Smith edition

This is what passes for Republican humor:
The chairwoman of the Sumter Tea Party is taking some heat after posting a joke on Facebook about killing the president and first lady.

Shery Lanford Smith posted the joke on her public profile Thursday afternoon, according to a screen-capture taken by the Sumter Item's Nick McCormac. Smith removed the post after being asked about it.

In the joke, the Obamas' helicopter pilot says to his co-pilot, "I could throw both of them out of the window and make 256 million people very happy!" Smith also posted, "If you're one of [the] 256 million, pass it on," implying she herself would be happy to see the Obamas killed.

The Tea Party and the rest, believe that it would be such a great deal if some nut killed President Obama. Please believe me when I say Shery Lanford Smith, Limbaugh, Hanity, Palin, and the rest, if President Obama is killed by some nut, many people in this country will hang that assassination around your necks. It won't be like Dr. Tiller or Gabby Giffords, where your constant hateful rhetoric caused these horrible actons and your just release a statement saying you had nothing to do with it and that is that. Your security budget will skyrocket.
