Tea Party Spokeswoman Thinks It's Really Funny When Political Opponents Die

Jen Ennenbach, spokesperson for the St. Louis Tea Party, thought it was extremely funny that renowned U.S. diplomat Richard Holbrooke died after surgery to repair a tear in his aorta. This is what Ennenbch tweeted:

Meanwhile, caring and decent human beings reflected on Holbrooke's life:
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called Holbrooke one of America's "fiercest champions and most dedicated public servants."
"Richard Holbrooke served the country he loved for nearly half a century, representing the United States in far-flung war zones and high-level peace talks, always with distinctive brilliance and unmatched determination," Clinton said.

Holbrooke served under every Democratic president from John F. Kennedy to Obama in a lengthy career that began with a foreign service posting in Vietnam in 1962 after graduating from Brown University, and included time as a member of the U.S. delegation to the Paris Peace Talks on Vietnam.

On Capitol Hill, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry, D-Mass., called the loss of Holbrooke "almost incomprehensible," adding that his "tough-as-nails, never-quit diplomacy" saved tens of thousands of lives.
This actually isn't a first for Ennenbach, who earlier thought that it would be really funny if I choked to death.

  1. Jen is obviously not only a miscreant, she's ignorant of Holbrooke's contribution towards efforts to seek and maintain stability in the various conflict zones around the world. But I suppose she gets something of a pass, since she was barely out of diapers when the Bosnian conflict began. Tweens really shouldn't be involved in discussing important things. Jen, sweety, please go back to your Hannah Montana shows.
