Two users of the online social network Twitter lost their minds Saturday and Sunday while watching the health-care debate move towards its Zenith, Gawker and Jezebel report. Blogger Solomon Forell, proprietor of the blogs “Barack Obama Was An American Electorate Mistake,” “Anybody But Barack Obama 2012,” and “The Audacity of Hype,” tweeted Saturday, “ASSASSINATION! America, we survived the assassinations of Lincoln and Kennedy. We’ll surely get over 2 BarackObama’s head!” Later on Saturday, Forell tweeted, “The next American with a clear shot should drop Obama like a bad habit. 4get blacks or his claim 2 b black. Turn on BarackObama!” According to Jezebel, the Secret Service is investigating Forell.

It will likely open an investigation into Jay Martin as well, who was the only CSPAN viewer last night whose health-care commentary consisted of, “if I lived in DC I’d shoot [Obama] myself..point blank. Dead F***ing serious.”
