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.

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.
