Outside the Montana state Republican Party convention this weekend was an outhouse labeled the “Obama Presidential Library” and covered in painted-on bullet holes.
Inside the outhouse contained a fake birth certificate for Barack Hussein Obama, according to the Helena Independent Record.
It was stamped “Bull——.” A graffito advised “For a Good Time call 800-Michelle (crossed out), Hillary (crossed out) and Pelosi (circled in red.)”
State GOP Chairman Will Deschamps said he didn’t know who was responsible for the outhouse but called it a “sideshow,” the paper reported.
“It’s not something I’m going to agonize over,” he said. “Some of that stuff is not real good taste. We do have a president of the United States, and we have to honor that.”
There was no indication of who brought the outhouse and parked it outside the hotel where the convention was taking place, though it has made a previous appearance in Montana at a Memorial Day parade in Corvallis.
Newt Gingrich was the featured speaker at the convention.
Update Sunday 12:55 PM: A reader sends in a picture of the outhouse from earlier this year in Corvallis, Montana, now featured at the top.
