Pretty good system. Maybe they can do something about that nose.

A Florida man has been sentenced to prison — again — for threatening to kill the president of the United States — again. Stephen Espalin says he only made the threat to get free medical care, though, and it wasn’t the first time he tried it either.

Espalin, 57, was sentenced to 18 months in federal prison after he threatened the life of then-President George W. Bush back in 2001. He apparently didn’t learn his lesson, however, and told investigators just a few years later that he would kill Pres. Barack Obama with a homemade bomb.

While being treated for heart attack-like symptoms at a Boca Raton, FL hospital in December 2010, Espalin, according to the Sun Sentinel, told Secret Service agents that he had shipped a bomb to the White House only hours earlier.

    Watch, some lefty toolbag at PMSNBC will claim his name is Stephen S. Palin and blame his threats on the former Alaska Gov.

    Ironic because our president is threatening us with “free” healthcare.

    Makes no sense. All he has to do to get free healthcare is walk into any E.R., complain of chest pain and state he has no insurance. Easy-peezy.

    His method gets him free food, free housing in sunny, tropical Belle Glade and free sex for a year and a half.

    His nose was headed to the right, but took an abrupt left turn, it seems…
