Gosh darn it, say it ain’t so, Sarah

Look, I'm no fan of yours in the first place, but if this is true, you have NO place running for anything.

Worse, 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."   from The Washington Post

So, what did she call him?  You'd think that if she dropped the N-word, more would've been made of it.  Either way, this isn't 1960 and you don't get to say that any more than I get to call you a redneck crazy-ass cracker.  Oops, guess I just did.

  • Not to be the devil's advocate, but I'm not sure you can always blame the leader for the fanaticism of the followers. I know some very very VERY outspoken democrats who take their Obama support to the extreme, and I want to divorce myself from them as much as I'd want to divorce myself from these Palin followers if I was for the McCain ticket. Granted, Palin should be issuing a statement that this kind of behavior is not condoned by her platform and urge her followers to support more reasonable, rational approaches to expressing their opinions. But if she did that, I might actually have some respect for her as a person, so maybe I won't hope too hard that it'll happen.

  • good lord. people are crazy.

  • She's really scaring me. She's getting the crazy fanatics all worked up and nothing good ever happens when they're worked up. I've heard of chants to "kill him!", yet the campaign does nothing to stop it.. Are they so scared of losing that this behavior has become acceptable? I think that makes them pretty contemptible.

  • Nope, sure can't. I mean, I don't blame Obama for what Rev. Wright does or says.
    I guess I just wonder why it's even still an issue for some folks. We're all pink on the inside, lol.

Say What?
