Perennial candidate Rex Rammell is no stranger to controversy, nor does he shy away from a quality publicity event, but he may have bitten off more than he could chew back in April. During a GOP fundraiser in Eastern Idaho, Rammell--who was running for governor at the time--joked about issuing Obama Tags after chiding Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter for not buying the first wolf tag issued in the state. Rammell quickly issued a clarification but that only dug a deeper hole. He stated that everyone should have known he was joking because Idaho doesn't have jurisdiction over hunting seasons in Washington, D.C. One group we're sure didn't get the joke was the Secret Service. They tend to take threats on the president's life pretty seriously.
