In case you missed it, Utah's Republican Rep. Paul Ray was so moved by the botched execution in Oklahoma that he has come up with what he thinks is a more humane solution: firing squads. Last night, Sean Hannity couldn't think of anything not to like.
Hannity said, "After what happened in Oklahoma, I mean, you're not going to mess up a firing squad, right?"
Ray assured Hannity that no executions have been botched by firing squad since 1897. In case you're wondering, Utah outlawed firing squads in 2004 but not retroactively. So inmates who had been sentenced to death before then could still choose that method. Utah's last execution, in 2010, was by firing squad, according to Ray.
If only Hannity had known, he could have gotten on the firing squad bus long ago!
Although Ray couches his support for a firing squad in humaneness, his other comments to Hannity suggest otherwise. When asked about that botched execution in Oklahoma, Ray said:
I don't know if you can call it botched because he still died. ...And I don't feel bad the guy suffered. I mean, look what he did to that little girl.
Hannity promised to keep following the issue.

Sorry, but metal detectors and/or x-ray screening won’t stop Slanthead. He claims he has concealed carry permits in New York and four or five other states. He’s said many times (on radio) that he never leaves his 17-room North Shore McMansion without his two fully-loaded Glocks!
Carrying one or more of his AR-15s (three publicly admitted to, says he wants more) into FNC’s 6th Ave. building might be more of a problem. Even mounting a gun rack in the rear of his reinforced Escalade — as he threatened to do when he got pissed at Gov. Cuomo — might get Hannocchio stopped by cops in the city.
Let’s hope Slanthead moves sooner rather than later. Last few times he’s had Gov. Perry on the radio, he’s promised to buy a small ranch in Texas, and maybe also keep his Moraya Bay beachfront condo in Naples, Fl. That may turn out to be a problem, if the oceans keep rising (of course Seanny, the ice sheets aren’t melting — that’s a librul lie!). Even if the waves don’t reach his bed, there may be no electricity there as the power plants in South Florida are all along the coast.
So Texas will be perfect for our boy. There are countless McDonald’s down there he can swagger into fully armed to the teeth. One place he probably won’t try to order a meal while pointing a barrel at the fast food worker’s face will be Chipotle, now that this chain has just announced that armed right wing scumbags arn’t welcome.
Then again, I don’t remember Slanthead — who almost every day tells us about his disgusting diet of Big Macs, etc. — ever saying how much he loved tacos and other Mexican junk food. And from what I read (I don’t eat there), Chipotle is supposed to be much better and healthier than the typical junk food. Though I’m sure that If Hannocchio showed up, he could ask for triple extra salt!
He is a sick and twisted individual. Hannocchio loves Florida because of the Stand Your Ground Law, and Texas because you can carry your firearms in public.
Right after he proves waterboarding is trivial.
Animals suffering because of climate change (a librul conspiracy, for sure), shoot ’em! Birds in the wrong place, shoot ’em! Someone spills a little popcorn on you, shoot ’em!
