“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.)
