For nearly the past two years, these two princes of shamelessness have been trying to win the GOP nomination by pandering to the frothing far-right fringe of their party. Until Wamp's Hotline faux pas, no one had yet uttered the word secession. But when Wamp talked about meeting President Obama at the border (to stop a nonexistent threat) or when Ramsey vowed to give Washington the boot (even as the state was staying afloat with federal stimulus cash), that deserved just as much derision. Ramsey was doing it again on the stump Saturday even after Wamp stepped in it. Does he sound like the reasonable one of the two?
He predicted, "Folks, the November election is going to be a revolution. There's going to be a whole lot more governors like Arizona's Jan Brewer, Texas' Rick Perry, New Jersey's Chris Christie and Virginia's Robert McDonnell. Governors who will stand up to the Federal government and say, 'enough is enough, we're not going to take it anymore; the 10th Amendment means the 10th Amendment."
