The Republican Party of Greene County, Virginia--north of Charlottesville--went off the deep end in its March newsletter.  It contains a column by editor Ponch McPhee which calls for getting Obama out of office as soon as possible if he's reelected in November.  Nope, not by finding a reason to impeach him.  McPhee wants Obama overthrown by a coup d'etat.

In the coming days and weeks  ~ we the people must come to grasp as a common force, our very soul’s, that our future as a sovereign nation is indeed at risk.

If every single individual that you know, would contact 25 other individuals  ~ we can make a difference that will be heard across the Commonwealth and in Washington.

The ultimate task for the people is to remain vigilant and aware  ~ that the government, their government is out of control, and this moment, this opportunity, must not be forsaken, must not escape us, for we shall not have any coarse but armed revolution should we fail with the power of the vote in November ~ This Republic cannot survive for 4 more years underneath this political socialist ideologue.

The newsletter claims a disclaimer saying the views expressed are only those of the writers.  But come on--we're talking about the editor of the county party's official mouthpiece here.  I looked around to find a statement from the party distancing itself from this rhetoric.  Zippo.

It turns out that McPhee hosts a conservative talk show, "Freedom Watch," on WTJU in Charlottesville on Saturday morning.  Drop station manager Nathan Moore a line at

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
