Senator John McCain and his running mate Governor Sarah Palin have been accusing Senator Barack Obama of associating with terrorists in recent days, and as a result, audience members at McCain and Palin rallies have called Obama a "terrorist" and threatened to kill him.
"Sarah Palin was on the verge of inciting a race riot in northern Florida" this week, the Nation reported. The paper said Republican audience members "hurled a racial epitaph" at an African American member of the media while other audience members yelled "kill him" and "treason!" when Barack Obama's name was mentioned. Palin did nothing to stop the attacks and reportedly responded: "Boy, you guys just get it!"
Palin began the attack on Monday when she told 8,000 fans at a rally in Florida that Obama "launched his political career in the living room of a domestic terrorist," according to the Washington Post. "This is not a man who sees America the way you and I see America," she said.
The McCain-Palin ticket has become increasingly negative in recent days and some have called their attacks "dangerous" and "racist." But it's not just Obama who has come under attack.
Washington Post reporter Dana Milbank describes the scene at a rally in Clearwater, Florida this week, where he said "arriving reporters were greeted with shouts and taunts by the crowd of about 3,000. Palin blamed CBS News anchor Katie Couric for her "less-than-successful interview with kinda mainstream media." Palin supporters then "turned on reporters in the press area, waving thunder sticks and shouting abuse," Milbank reported. "Others hurled obscenities at a camera crew. One Palin supporter shouted a racial epithet at an African American sound man for a network

Such shameful behavior from the Mccain campaign. It would seem the influences of John Vogel, Leonore Annenberg, Dr. Anthony Bouscaren, and Marilyn Shannon on Mccain have reared their ugly head.

The number: 22
22 what you may ask?
Answer: the number of times McCain referred to "My friends" in the second Presidential debate.
The number: 1
Only once did he refer to the middle class. He couldn't even say middle class. Instead he struggled to say "middle income voters". Hmm... Who, then might he be referring to when he says "My Friends'???
His Big Oil Friends (Drill Baby Drill!).
His Fannie May Friends, particularly Rick Davis.
His Domestic Terrorist Friends like John Vogel.
His Chicago Annenberg Friends, Leonore Annenberg.
His Friends from the former Lincoln Savings & Loan Association.
His Friend Dr. Anthony Bouscaren
His Friends from the Oregon Citizen's Alliance, especially Marilyn Shannon.
His Friends in the Mortgage and banking industry who love his(???) new mortgage buyback plan.
Hi veteran friends, no wait, they're not to happy with him ( http://www.iava.org/demandaction ).
Gee! It's good to be McCain's friend. Too bad the Middle Class in America does not seem to be one of them.
