A Real-Life Lynching?

At rallies over the last few days, both John McCain and Sarah Palin have been baiting their crowds of core supporters with stories about Barack Obama's ties to "terrorists who want to destroy America". As fevered supporters at the rallies shout "Terrorist!" and "Kill him!" McCain and Palin lean back and grin...

It would be impossible for my loathing for those two to sink any lower, but it just did. Don't they know there are some nutty people out there who might try to do just that? Or is that what they're hoping?

One has to wonder.

It wouldn't be the first witch hunt Palin was a part of.

Those two really scare me. Stirring up hatred is not patriotic. What could they be thinking?

Do you have a link to such a speech? I'd like to reference it for a friend of mine...

Yeah, it is getting pretty ugly out there. That's part of what prompted me to do my most recent post. I think these guys have sunk to new lows.

Yeah, I've been surprised at the level McCain/Palin have sunk too. Palin though has this soulless quality I find chilling since she seems to revel in almost Hitler-like stance with far too many people going along with it.

smells like fascist spirit to me.

As someone who works with people who used to be members of the SPD, MOVE, and the Black Panthers, I am not scared.

Fuck.

I am sorry to be profane on your esteemed organ, colonel, but ... fuck. What else can I say?

It's pretty bad, but I think that the rabble-rousing will push most fence-sitters over to the Obama camp.
