Flashback, October 2010 - Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D, I Repeat - *D*): "Put Him Against The Wall and Shoot Him"

This must be the type of "eliminationist rhetoric" that gives Paul Krugman the heebie-jeebies.

Oh but wait - former U.S. Representative Paul Kanjorski is a Democrat. That means this never really happened.
“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 [sic] 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."
Nothing to see there. It was just a metaphor!
