More violent rhetoric - Who said this?

Take a guess as to who said the following words and to which party they belong...

"Instead of running for governor they ought to have him and shoot him. Put him against the wall and shoot him. "

Well, we haven't seen this plastered all over MSNBC, CNN and ABC, so if you guessed that it was a Democrat who said it you'd be right.

Those were the words of the now Ex-Democratic Congressman Paul Kanjorski of Pennsylvania, referring to newly elected Republican governer Rick Scott of Florida.

Here's what he said in full,

"That Scott down there that's running for governor of Florida," Mr. Kanjorski said. "Instead of running for governor of Florida, they ought to have him and shoot him. Put him against the wall and shoot him. He stole billions of dollars from the United States government and he's running for governor of Florida. He's a millionaire and a billionaire. He's no hero. He's a damn crook. It's just we don't prosecute big crooks."

Anyone want to guess what would've happened if a Republican had said this about a Democrat? If said Republican were a gun owner? Better yet, what would've been the reaction if a Libertarian or Republican pro-gun blogger like TJIC had said it? Hell, just imagine if Sarah Palin had said something like that.

But hell, a Democratic Congressman said it. Nothing to see here, no violent rhetoric from the left. Move along.
