Tennessee State Rep. vying to become leader of the tinfoil hat brigade

Apparently Republican Tennessee State Rep. Kelly Kiesling is vying to be the leader of the tinfoil hat brigade.

A Republican member of the Tennessee state legislature emailed constituents Tuesday morning with a rumor circulating in conservative circles that President Barack Obama is planning to stage a fake assassination attempt in an effort to stop the 2012 election from happening.

Rep. Kelly Keisling (R-Byrdstown) sent an email from his state email account to constituents containing a rumor that Obama and the Department of Homeland Security are planning a series of events that could lead to the imposition of “martial law” and delay the election. Among the events hypothesized in the email is a staged assassination attempt on the president that would lead to civil unrest in urban areas and martial law.

What’s next…..conservatives questioning whether President Obama was actually born in Amer….oh wait.

  1. Republican Mantra 2012: Vote for me! I look, sound like and am as clueless as you are!

  2. It’s a good thing no liberals ever bought into crazy theories exactly like this during the Bush years in the 2004 and 2008 elections.

      1. Rich, you must have a short memory. As I said, it was this exact same rumor more or less — instating martial law and calling off the election. Don’t forget the one about reinstating the draft. A simple google search would provide much evidence, if your memory fails you.
