I guess folksy people are free to incite murder

From AMERICAblog:

“Now it turns out, one of his earliest supporters is a man named Bill Ayers,” Palin said.

“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.

Palin went on to say that “Obama held one of the first meetings of his political career in Bill Ayers’s living room, and they’ve worked together o  various projects in Chicago.”

I suppose we can’t be certain Palin heard the comment in question, so perhaps she gets a pass for not chastising the creep who yelled the “kill him” comment. But the fact remains, McCain and Palin are playing a very dangerous — and very irresponsible — game here.

(For a similar, somewhat less grievous, but nevertheless despicable, example involving McCain himself, go here.)

    Sarah Palin loves her role as Bully Girl. She is wearing it like a second skin. It fits her to a T. The fool fails to see how it tarnishes her in the long run. People really dont like bitchy women. When Hillary went negative, it killed her chances. But, Sarah, the Pitbull with Lipstick, is proud to talk trash. Since she doesnt make sense the rest of the time, she had to find her voice somewhere. Smearing, lying, character assassination: Watch Sarah lap it up and spit it out! She cannot wait to get onstage and sling that mud, all done in a fake, phony, downhome accent, dropping her g’s like pigeon poop. And, if it incites the crowd to murderous agitation, so much the better. After all, this is the woman who promotes shooting animals from airplanes, after chasing them to exhaustion, then letting them suffer a painful death, since the shot is seldom initially fatal from an airplane. Such vicious cruelty is hard to believe, but Shotgun Sarah doesnt give a rat’s ass about any suffering she might cause by her injudicious words or actions. Damn. Another Dick Cheney The Consummate Sociopath, in high heels. How did we get so lucky……….It must be a new requirement for Republican Vice-Presidents.
    McCain can leave the dirtiest work to Sarah. He realizes it is her cup of tea. I used to work for the Daughters of Charity, Ascencion Healthcare. It was a pattern of theirs to promote people like Sarah Palin. They admired very aggressive, abrasive, incompetent women and men. They ‘mistook’ it for leadership. In the end, it has gotten them into a fair amount of trouble, huge fines, and failed ventures. The Director of Nurses and the V.P. for Mental Health were such folks. The DON had no experience in mental health nursing. She was paranoid, aggressive, and vicious. The V.P. was underhanded, passive aggressive and totally incompetent. The two of them finally went after each other. All the decent staff left. The Units became known as the worst in the city. Now, only two small units are left, with bad reputations. The DON and the V.P. had their positions downsized. But, they were the Bully Boys for the Daughters. Those Hard-Eyed Old Nuns(with tax-evading accounts in the Cayman Islands) could continue their pretence of “Caring” and let two incompetent, nasty people do the dirty work.Inevitably, the whole mess collapsed. You see this time and again in companies. Evidently, the greedy CEOs of these big investment firms fit the same mold. Surely, Carly Fiorino(sic?) who trashed Hewlitt Packard, was the Queen of Incompetence. So, it is no surprise that Sarah Palin is picking up the standard of the Republican Party, covering it with filth, and carrying it proudly. If a fanatic nutcase in the audience is incited to murderous rage, then Sarah will have done her job well. Believe me, she heard they creep. She didnt respond, because she got a response that pleased her. Like I said, she makes my skin crawl.

    yesterday, i watched “War made Easy” (by Loretta Alper and Jeremy Earp (Review)

    couldn’t stand it - really, had to change the channel, whenever Bush was on

    “a plethora of visual proof, troubling to the point of absurdity”

    (sorry - seems, that my comments look like spam, sometimes…)

    McCain and Palin are playing a very dangerous — and very irresponsible — game here.

    but “War made Easy”also told about Wayne Morse (watch it and whine! What a difference between “Brave Morse” and “Slimy McCain”! I would LOVE to hear words like that today - and an honesty like that!)

    “the foreign policy belongs to the american people…. all the president is, is the administrator of the people’s foreign policy”

    and Barbara Lee (what a difference between “Decent Lee” and “Polished Palin”, the pin-up girl of what is left of democratic rituals)

    “let us not become the evil, that we deplore”


    The REAL American heroes: Morse and Lee - alone against a stampede…

    Wayne Morse: one of only two senators to vote against the Gulf of Tonkin resolution
    Barabara Lee: 480 to 1

    next time - there would be no one left, challenging the kingship of the American President?

    some days ago i heard a joke about the Financial Crisis: However, there is an advantage, when America Is Broke - no money left for wars

    just found (hearsay, but telling) ;.)

    asteroid Palin” (the link is http://tech.groups.ya ho o.com/group/mpml/message/21168 - please remove blanks)

    I for one advocate the naming of this asteroid after Alaska Governor and
    McCain running mate Sarah Palin. Why? It’s small, not that bright, and won’t
    make much of an impact. Not to mention, McCain can probably remember when
    that asteroid was first created. However, scientists have not confirmed
    whether or not the asteroid shot a moose from a helicopter.
