Roy Rogers - now there is some good eatin'

Jordan179 quotes an Obama-gets-assassinated fantasy done by Earl MacRae in The Ottowa Sun.
"They do not want to hear that he is a better American than they are, these right-wing extremist fascists in the land of America who no doubt believe it's God's will Barack Obama not get to the White House, no method of deterrence out of bounds, in their zealotry to protect and perpetuate Roy Rogers, John Wayne, Mom's apple pie and the cross of Jesus in every home."

Among the funniest aspect of this is that MacRae apparently does not know the meaning of "deterrence," and imagines "Roy Rogers" and "John Wayne" to be symbols of racist assassinations (to the younger among you Gentle Readers: they were cowboy movie actors!!!)

Not to mention that for many people on the East Coast 'Roy Rogers' is the name of a really good fast-food restaurant.
