Thank you, John McCain & Sarah Palin! You both have just unleashed the worst kind of hatred that I sometimes forget can be in us humans. Who knew there are still some in this country that are being consumed by such vile hate? Well, I guess the Republican Party knew.
Palin's routine attacks on the media have begun to spill into ugliness. In Clearwater, arriving reporters were greeted with shouts and taunts by the crowd of about 3,000. Palin then went on to blame Katie Couric's questions for her "less-than-successful interview with kinda mainstream media." At that, Palin supporters turned on reporters in the press area, waving thunder sticks and shouting abuse. Others hurled obscenities at a camera crew. One Palin supporter shouted a racial epithet at an African American sound man for a network and told him, "Sit down, boy."
For the sake of our nation's well being, we can NOT allow this hate to win! If the McCain-Palin GOP operation intends to resort to this kind of ugly racism to win, then they don't deserve to win. America is better than this.
