Tim is looking more and more right as this thing goes on. Somebody is going to get hurt.

MIAMI (AP) — A man who authorities said was keeping weapons and military-style gear in his hotel room and car appeared in court Thursday on charges he threatened to assassinate Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Raymond Hunter Geisel, 22, was arrested by the Secret Service on Saturday in Miami and was ordered held at Miami’s downtown detention center without bail Thursday by a federal magistrate.

A Secret Service affidavit charges that Geisel made the threat during a training class for bail bondsmen in Miami in late July. According to someone else in the 48-member class, Geisel allegedly referred to Obama with a racial epithet and continued, “If he gets elected, I’ll assassinate him myself.”

When a wingnut photographer is allowed to enter the press area with a “good shot” at the Presidential candidate and clearly disrupts the event in an anti-Obama screed, things need to get much, much better from a security standpoint. Hopefully this will spur that on.
