McCain rallies are getting ugly

Check out some of the comments made by a McCain supporter in Wisconsin:

“When you have an Obama, [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi and the rest of the hooligans up there going to run this country, we have got to have our head examined. It’s time that you two are representing us, and we are mad. So, go get them,” one man told Sen. John McCain at a town hall meeting in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

This people are pissed because they just can’t believe that they’re candidate has fallen behind, in danger of losing the race. To which I say:

Only it isn’t going to be funny if this kind of mentality escalates beyond ugly words.

McCain and Palin aren’t doing anything to quell it. In anything, they’re egging these people on. You jerks in the crowds yelling things like “treason” and even “kill him.” That’s just wrong. And is something bad happens it will be on their, McCain’s and Palin’s, heads.

But still some are blowing it off, like the Republican shill on the Diane Rheem show this morning. He said it was a few unfortunate incidents being blown out of proportion by the media. Of course. Thankfully, Juan Williams was ther to call it was what it was: Offensive! And Elinore Clift, who said, rightly, that McCain and Palin were playing a dangerous game with inflamatory rhetoric.

  1. No wonder political analysts have called the McCain campaign the sleaziest in history!!! Because it is!! Look at what they(McCain and Palin) are doing!!

  2. About ten weeks ago, a man armed with a shotgun entered a church in Knoxville, Tennessee, killing two and severely wounding six. He siad that since he couldn’t kill liberal political leaders he would kill those who elected them.

    Police found in the shooter’s house copies of books by Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, and Michael Savage. There is much speculation that the shooter got his inspiration from those books.

    With the rage being generated at McCain-Palin rallies, it is only a matter of time before people act on their anger. And there will be bloodshed.

    I hope that the Republicans will begin to ct responsibly before there is a tragedy.

  3. I for one am a Republican wishing for a Obama win. Once he is in office with the fringe of the democratic party in charge things should get interesting. I can find a way to eat less to save money, maybe not buy a car or anything major for four years. Just to have another Jimmy Carter exit when it is over, and people are tired of being taxed into the ground. The Democrats will be out of office for another extended decade after that just like last time. They elected B. Clinton (moderate) and he did great. But they have gone way to far left for the majority of Americans now and the backlash is going to be felt once people get hit in the pocket book enough.

  4. You’d have to be a Republican, to be that cynical.

    Yes, Scott. I’m sure you existing on rice and Ramen noodles and not buying a new car will plummet the economy into an even deeper abyss. How ingenious of you. Obama doesn’t stand a chance.

    So you predict when Obama cuts the middle classes taxes and discontinues loopholes for the richest mfers in this country they’ll be clamoring to toss him out of office? What a novel prediction. Well, I guess we’ll see.

    As for your hope that Dems will be excised from the majority for another decade plus some, you might want to check out a book entitled Millennial Makeover. If history and the predictions of the book bare out, you could be looking at a 40 year stretch of Democratic rule. How sad for you.

    Ultimately your little cry baby rant is really the only argument (if you can even call it that) that you and your ilk have left as you see your Republican “dynasty” come to a much deserved end.

    Now. Hit the road.

  5. I do believe there are plenty of Republicans who will act responsibly, Nathan. Unfortunately, McCain and Palin don’t seem to be among them. They are only stirring the pot. But you can sure shit bet that if something tragic does happen they will not take one iota of responsibility for it. Responsibility is something expect from others but not of themselves. So I wouldn’t hold our breath on that count.
