It Gets Nasty

With the Republicans now free-falling in their failing campaign, they’re resorting to lies (yes, more), racism (yes, more) and this:

Incitement to hatred? McCain’s actually resorting to that? It’s not as if it’s not something he’s indulged in before. It’s not just McCain doing it though – his pitbull’s doing it too, and with an even more alarming response:

“Boooo!” said the crowd.

“And, according to the New York Times, he was a domestic terrorist and part of a group that, quote, ‘launched a campaign of bombings that would target the Pentagon and our U.S. Capitol,'” she continued.

“Boooo!” the crowd repeated.

“Kill him!” proposed one man in the audience.

I’m being disingenuous you say? They didn’t tell their supporters to say those things you say? Well whilst McCain did look unsettled by the ‘terrorist’ response, he didn’t say anything against it, any more than Palin did to her more murderous minion.
