Hardin County GOP Official: I Hate Vermont and the “Maggots” Who Reelected President Obama

By Bradford Pearson |

From the Star-Telegram’s Bud Kennedy:

One party official from Southeast Texas calls for — not secession — separation.

“Why should Vermont and Texas live under the same government?” writes Hardin County Republican treasurer Peter Morrison, a Ron Paul supporter and author of a race-heavy Tea Party newsletter.

“Let each go her own way,” he writes, demanding an “amicable divorce” from the U.S. and from the “maggots” who re-elected President Obama. 

When Kennedy got Hardin County Republican Party Chairman Kent Batman* on the phone: “OK, well — I guess I need to start taking a look at his newsletters.”

Probably a wise move, as Morrison went on to disparage Asian-Americans and Hispanics.

* HOLY SURNAME BATMAN. What’s the etymology of that? Does he come from a long line of baseball bat-makers? Or literal half-men/half-bats?
