McCain's people are full of shit - they could easily circulate a memo before the rally specifying not to resort to the Hussein nonsense. I don't buy for one second that they mind.

Keep throwing shit in the wind, it'll land right back on your face.

And it just so happens that people at McCain rallies start bringing back the Hussein thing at the same time that Sarah Palin is playing up Obama's terrorist ties.

My mom and I watched it too, and we were both just talking about what a remarkable, intelligent woman she is. She's definitely become one of my role models. The way she came from a poor family and was able to attend Princeton and Harvard Law School and balance a career with being a wife and mother is something I want to emulate some day. I love watching strong, independent women who challenge and encourage their husbands, not just stand in their shadow and beam like some teenage groupie. She's the type of woman I want be someday. The best guage of this, for me, was talking to my grandma after the interview and listening to her talk about how impressed she is with Michelle. My grandma came from a world where even while earning straight A's in high school, didn't have a chance to go to college because she had to go to work as a secretary to help support her widowed mom and younger siblings. She chose to be a housewife after my dad was born, but she always believed in equal rights for women in the workforce even when it wasn't popular. When she sees Michelle she sees a woman, she says, that is an inspirations, My grandma always talks about the opportunities women have and how those who choose not to get an education and use it as a means of helping others, or women who fade into their husband's shadow throw their lack of gratitude into the faces of women of her generation who were so capable of achieving great things but didn't have the support or the chance. It makes me grateful for my education and the choices I have in life now.

I saw a car on campus today with 2 bumperstickers. One was an Obama sticker, the other simply said, in cursive, "diamond".......

After a week of McCain supporters being incited to shout "kill him!" and "terrorist!" and "treason!", a man in Louisiana was arrested for threatening to kill election officials. The Smoking Gun has his arrest report and mug shots. It seems his voter registration card was delayed, and he was insistent that he would bring his shotgun to their office and kill them if they didn't hurry up because he needed to "keep the n*gger out of office."
NBC is also reporting that at today's McCain/Palin rally, there were screams of "Off with [Obama's] head!"

I am embarrassed on behalf of your entire country to be honest.

Oh, like there are no raving lunatics in Canada.

Seriously, though - very frightening. I'm glad the "kill him!" guy was treated as a real threat.

Excellent.

Edit: I'm really sorry I watched that video and really ashamed of myself for thinking I wanted to punch that blonde woman in the face.

Be kinda funny if these people turn out to be Obama supporters who want to embarrass Salin Palin but aren't quite smart enough to hack into her email account or sneak in a "God hates fags" sign to hold up in front of a television camera.

In all seriousness, I hope Obama gets the absolute best of the best in security, because there are alot of racist muthafukas in America that would love to take a shot at him.
That, God forbid, would be enough to drive me out of here....

Where'd you hear about the sign? I haven't heard that one...

It's not like conservatives aren't writing articles like "I'm a liberal but I support...".
