This is one of those times when context is key.

Palin hung by a noose in Hollywood is grotesque.

Palin having sex with a hung moose in Tijuana is huge money.

I don't know why anyone would want to call attention to themselves that way. Teenagers could get beat up with that mask and someone could light that Palin lyncher's house on fire. I don't even want signs on my lawn now that people have fun breaking them.

Mito Aviles, left, and ChadMichael Morrisette stand in front of the effigy of candidate Sarah Palin placed on their home in West Hollywood.

(these guys aren't helping the no on Prop 8 vote, so much for tolerance)

Palin Effigy Hanging from a Noose is Not a Hate Crime Say Los Angeles Police

Donovan said the Secret Service tries to determine the motive behind displays like the one in California.

"These effigies or other similar visual presentations could ... be an intent to intimidate people," he said. "Through interviews or further investigation, when they're brought to our attention, we're proactive in addressing these matters."

Whitmore said he visited the house where the effigy is displayed on Tuesday morning to get a look at it -- a mannequin wearing "Palin-style" glasses, a brown beehive wig and a red coat, dangling by a thick white rope coiled around its neck.

Sheriffs have gotten between five and 10 angry phone calls from residents who say they're offended by the Halloween lawn exhibit, Sgt. Kristin Aloma of the L.A. Sheriff's Department's West Hollywood unit told the Times.

Authorities are keeping an eye on the neighborhood and the house, she added.

The mayor of West Hollywood, meanwhile, wants the mannequin taken down.

"While these residents have the legal right to display Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin in effigy, I strongly oppose political speech that references violence -- real or perceived," Mayor Jeffrey Prang said in a prepared statement.

"I urge these residents to take down their display and find more constructive ways to express their opinion."

In addition to including more typical Halloween paraphernalia like skeletons and spider webs, the display also has a John McCain figure in a chimney with fake flames around him, according to the Times.

Chad Michael Morrisette, who lives in the house, said the exhibit has become something of a tourist attraction, with visitors stopping frequently to take photos.

Morrisette acknowledged that if the display were of Barack Obama, instead of Palin, there might have been more of an uproar.

"The image of a hanged black man is a lot more intense than the image of a hanged white woman, for our country and the history of our country," Morrisette told KCBS-TV.
Not a hate crime? I tend to agree.


If it was an effigy of Obama,
I would want it taken down immediately.

True, unfortunately.

I read that their neighbors have been standing at the curb holding up bedsheets to prevent passers-by from viewing the display, as a protest of sorts.

Politically, it could play badly. Not a question of 'should'.

well, this is tangental, but what the heck.

in the interest of appearing "acceptable" to straights, might it be politically shrewd for gays cut back on certain elements of gay culture such as this:

Harmless camp, no one will care. Hanging an effigy by a noose is a wee bit different.

Neither should, neither rationally does. It could only stir up people who already tend towards hostile stereotypes. But why risk giving them the ammo? No one needs the attention-getter of hanging a candidate for national office in effigy on their lawn.
