Another anti-Obama outburst picked up by television microphones, this one from a Palin rally today:

Does the McCain-Palin campaign really want to find out exactly where political-base-rallying ends and demagoguing a mob begins? Or, worse, exactly where demagoguing a mob ends and inciting violence begins?

These audiences are full of morons. All the booing and whatnot...oh, maybe that's because Failin is a cheerleader for the republicans. She's just there to say the crap that will get the base riled up. She is there for her base...hey didja know that Al Qaeda means "The Base??"

It's good to see that the GOP has a monopoly on stupid motherfuckers.

America will always end of with the leaders it deserves, not needs; deserves.

if you guys want to see how nuts it's getting... go to the Hillary for McCain site and read the comments. It's getting nuts!

They can say anything and get away with it, because the mainstream media will not hold them accountable, nor will mainstream Democrats. Rev. Wright gets the stick for saying "god damn America." These nutjobs will get a pass, while the mainstream media says "race" but not racism might be an issue this election.

So what exactly are the Democrats doing to guard against fraud, intimidation, and disenfranchisement? I haven't heard a peep about this from major sources and it makes me crazy with worry. We've had two elections in a row stolen - what's being done to stop a third?

#6, I used to read those comments during the primary, and I just about had a coronary. Please don't tempt me.

I'm just waiting for her to start asking "Will no one rid me of this meddlesome senator?"

I couldn't understand what he said. What was it?

@10 then let me not tempt you with this:

"And lest we not forget the Palestinian terrorists that Obama hangs out with and gives speeches in support of in Chicago - where any terrorist can go to find a respectable teaching job when needed. Remember the bombing of our Marine Corps barracks in Lebanon? Over 300 marines were killed in that terrorist attack. John McCain warned against putting our Marines in harms way, Obama hangs out with the founding members and other masterminds of the bombing plots. But Obama will say “How was I supposed to know he used to be a terrorist?”"

Oh, N/M..

omg. i will pay anyone's salary for a year if you go to republican events in the south yelling "secession!" maybe it will rile up these nutjobs just enough to leave -- no slavery this time, no civil war.

Does anyone else get the perverse sense that McCain and Palin, whether intended or not, are whipping their supporters into such a fury that sedation or assassination is becoming an increasing possibility?

Posted by Doctor Professor | October 7, 2008 2:42 PM

This is just a teeny bit off topic, but well worth the trip.

It's a great blog written by an 82 year old woman.

This is what desperation looks like.

@19: I'd prefer sedation. Maybe they can all go into a cryogenic sleep, only waking up when the South rises again... which will never ever happen.

Posted by Scalpel | October 7, 2008 3:17 PM

@20- Sedation, that's Cindy McCain's slogan.

OMG! A hothead at a Republican rally? Let's get the ACLU on this right away!

in north america we hate to say it, but we have committed war crimes in those countries. we love to praise the brave men and women in uniform, but the truth of the matter is that some soldiers have done some pretty fucked up shit to the civilian populations there.

i know, it is what happens in wars of occupation, and war is war, and blah, blah blah, but we should come to grips with the fact that not everything our boys do over there is heroic and our nation has commited war crimes which we will never be held accountable for in international courts.

they have bombed entire villages, hospitals neighborhoods, shot cab drivers, raped young girls, and killed women and children and a few elderly poppy growers. we have tortured thousands of inocent civilians who just happened to be in the wrong place. and these are the documented cases. some of which have played extensively on 60 minutes.

some of it comes from the high comand and some comes from foot soldiers. obviously not all soldiers are comitting atrocities, but enough of em and to say otherwise is simply patriotic bull shit.

were just as guilty of the blind, we support our troops and they can do no wrong as the republicans are, some of the shit that has happened over there would be called war crimes if we were any other country. just recently a soldier got only 8 months for killing a bunch of civilians in cold blood, if this was bosnia hercegovinia he would be on his way to the hague as a war criminal.

the reason why those attacks (palin's) work is because everybody wants to beleive that we have not done wrong and that despite it all, our boys are doing a righteous job over there. and that the fact that were from north america makes us incapable of commiting war crimes. well, im sure a lot of em are, but we have done some god awful shit in those countries and for the most part people dont care. sorry for the long post.

You know, I used to mock Hillary Clinton (whom I liked, and whom I would have voted for) as being the stereotype of the VP of Marketing at a particularly banal corporation.

But this skank? Ugh. She's the receptionist that slept with the elderly boss and, through blackmail and intimidation, became the PR spokesperson for a company who just accidentally poisoned 4,000 kittens.

Posted by Catalina Vel-DuRay | October 7, 2008 4:25 PM

Catalina, the poisoning wasn't accidental. They knew it was out there, and they knew the kittens would die. They didn't try to clean it up or report it because, frankly, they don't give a fuck about a bunch of kittens, plus they thought they could get away with it.

I can't look at her ugly mug anymore without having a sudden, visceral urge to punch it.

Posted by east coaster | October 8, 2008 5:33 PM

Oh--I didn't get it for a minute. I assumed the "treason" shout was in response to Palin, not Obama.
