Comic Chris Titus hints at assassinating Palin ‘if she gets elected president’

Sometimes there is a line that is crossed between what appropriate for comedy and what’s likely off limits. But did comic Christopher Titus cross that line?

In an appearance on Monday’s “The Adam Carolla Show” podcast, Titus may have waded into that territory. In responding to a question about former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” in which Palin defended her interpretation of what happened during Paul Revere’s pre-Revolutionary War famous ride, Titus launched into a description of what he would do if Palin were elected.

“You know what man?” Titus said. “I am going to literally — if she gets elected president, I am going to hang out on the grassy knoll all the time, just loaded and ready — because you know what? It’s for my country. It’s for my country. If I got to sacrifice myself, it’s for my country.”

Titus has appeared in numerous television shows and had a primetime sitcom on the Fox broadcast network that started in 2000 and lasted two years.

    Hi. This is Christopher Titus. I told a joke, in a comedy club, on a comedy podcast. I also apologized even after 400 people who said I shouldn’t threaten to kill anyone, threatened to kill me and my kids. With all the crazy that is in politics these days do we really need to go after comedians? Sarah Palin got away with the Paul Revere brain fart by saying “Technically I was accurate” Well then, the truth is I did not threaten to kill Sarah Palin as the Warren commission proved no one was shot from the grassy knoll so “Technically, I did not threaten to kill her”.  Goose, gander, right? Except I apologized and took the hit for a tasteless joke. Palin has never taken the hit, apologized or ever took responsibility for any gaffe, screw up or saying ” Don’t retreat, reload”. I’m not right or left, I have voted dem, rep and Perot. I believe that we have the right to free speech which obviously none of you do. You stand in the shadow of the constitution yet turn your back when it doesn’t suit you. My apology for the joke was real but my opinion of Palin is unchanged. She is either dumb or not good under pressure both of which disqualify her from POTUS. “You don’t give the stupid Cheerleader the Uzi” I stand in my belief and will not change it. Ron Paul on the other hand is Nostradamus and the media ignores the guy. Great ideas, great education, military record, doctor. When he speaks on abortion he is talking from a doctors view point. Apologies are not enough, you actually want me to agree that she is qualified to be president. Not gonna happen. Your Ted Nugent comments are mild and you all just brush them off and he was holding an automatic weapon. He also threatened to kill not just Obama but Hilary too. You guys okay with that? Hypocrite, look it up.

    PS I dont think Lee Harvey Oswald was in the Havana Funny Bone doing kill JFK jokes before he went to Dallas.

      You are absolutely AMAZING, Christopher!  F*** Sarah Palin – I’d throw her @$$ on a fire just to keep your feet warm. You shouldn’t have to apologize for a “tasteless” joke. Your irreverent sense of humor has done more for me than any shrink or prescription or deity ever could. When you held out your battered heart and allowed (nay, forced) me to laugh at your pain, a beautiful thing happened inside of me! As I grew to know your life and see things through your eyes, a lot of my own pain and shame and rage became nothing but a joke. Jokes don’t hurt, Christopher. Too bad none of these butt cracks realize such wisdom. Perhaps some of them will evolve…

      My eloquence and wit are not at all unimpressive, but when I stood in your presence in Addison, TX a few months ago, all I could do was try not to cry and thank God for you. I’m not at all the God-thanking Christiany type, but whoever or whatever wrote THIS comedy deserves a “kudos” for what happened on October 1, 1964. Apologize if you must but when the time comes, you go right ahead and make a grand spectacle on that grassy knoll… that way, nobody will be watching me in the book depository! (Take THAT, you huffed-up morons, and don’t hold your breath for MY apology!)
