Conservative DJ Roger Hedgecock Says Dems "Crave Dead Miners"

Roger Hedgecock is a syndicated, conservative radio personality and former San Diego mayor. He recently hosted a show from the tea party rally in Searchlight, Nevada and has filled-in on Rush Limbaugh's show.

Today, he went a little over the edge, first claiming that the West Virginia mining disaster is the fault of Democrats who "crave dead miners," before suggesting that China may have sabotaged the mine. Then he claimed that the Ohio man who pleaded guilty to punching children at Wal-Mart must be an Obama voter because Dems are "hostile" to children.

The third post he quickly deleted--but not before I screen captured it.

Here's his link.

Lest you thought Hedgecock's "dead miner" tweets yesterday were just a momentarily lapse in judgment, here's what he posted to Twitter this afternoon:
