GOP Speaker Of Kansas House Sends Out Email Prayer For Death Of Obama

The GOP speaker of the Kansas House has sent out an email prayer for the death of President Obama. Such "imprecatory prayers" are usually seen from far-right preachers, not politicians.
The Journal-World also revealed that O’Neal had forward another email which referenced the Bible verse Psalm 109:8, which reads: “Let his days be few; and let another take his office.” The very next verse adds: “Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow." The verse became a conservative meme in 2009 after it began appearing on bumper stickers, t-shirts and even toys. The most common slogan was, “Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8.” “At last — I can honestly voice a Biblical prayer for our president!” O’Neal wrote. “Look it up — it is word for word! Let us all bow our heads and pray. Brothers and Sisters, can I get an AMEN? AMEN!!!!!!”
Another email from O'Neal referred to the First Lady as "Mrs. YoMama" and compared her appearance to Dr. Seuss' Grinch.
