Republican member of Congress "jokes" about hunting and killing Democrats

From Think Progress

In a new interview with Rep. Gregg Harper (R-MS), Politico asks the congressman what the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus does. Harper’s response:

We hunt liberal, tree-hugging Democrats, although it does seem like a waste of good ammunition.
I wonder if Mr. Harper would enjoy pretending to kill Democrats on-line, too.

This is, of course, part of a disturbing trend of the mainstreaming of eliminationist rhetoric within the conservative movement.
