...If something happens to Obama. I told everyone a thread I started three days ago would be my last in Politics & Religion until after November 4th, 2008, BUT... ...I simply can't deny what I am seeing here, over the course of the last few days, where the nutcase part (admittedly small, but vocal) of the GOP has been showing up at Palin and McCain rallies, and shouting "terrorist," "kill him," "bomb him," and "nigger" openly and loudly at these rallies, in reference to Obama. This is an exact and direct result of the historically unprecedented campaign of fear-baiting and incredibly hate-inciting words Palin and McCain (but especially Palin), along with GOP surrogates, have been using loudly about Obama, a United States Senator. This is as slimy as it gets. I'm not worried about it helping McCain, who has proven he is now unfit to be the President of The United States, as it will only destroy his campaign. However, if something happens to Obama, it will be due in least at part as a result of the errant words, false connotations and factual distortions used by McCain, Palin and their surrogates. By the way, Homeland Defense Secretary Chertoff briefed Obama earlier than other Presidential Nominee in history about the risks posed to his security ( http://www.nytimes.com/2007/05/04/us/politics/04obama.html - "Secret Service Guards Obama, Taking Unusually Early Step"), and to see McCain and Palin not only ignore that briefing, but inflame the hatred is nothing short of treasonous. John McCain needs to end the bullshit, with no uncertainty, immediately. He has already severely damaged his reputation in the eyes of Republicans, Independents and Democrats. He may do much worse if he doesn't act quickly and decisively on this issue.
