I am fuming over the rhetoric and tone of the McCain/Palin campaign.
Seriously, these two have gone too far and their statements and insinuations are fanning the flames of hatred, intolerance and violence among the most ignorant of their supporters.
We know they are losing and they know it, too. But rather than elevate the tone and rhetoric of their speeches and offer some useful ideas to help a damaged America stabilize, they both ramped up the hate speech about Obama, and in the process emboldened the worst kind of racists and hatemongers who support them.
God damn it, they can't talk about Christian Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Obama's 20-year association with his church and call Obama a Muslim at the same time.
God damn it, they can't fault Obama for what Bill Ayres did as a Weatherman 40 years ago when Obama was 8.
God damn it, they cannot encourage their followers to start yelling "terrorist," "kill him" and "off with his head" at their rallies.
These people are insane!
Bitter, mean spirited and hate mongering candidates have no place in the government.
When one of McCain's idiot supporters claimed Obama was a Muslim, McCain made a feeble attempt to correct her by saying, "No ma'am, Senator Obama is a good family man."
So ignorant and steeped in hatred is he, he inferred that Muslims by nature cannot be "good family men."
We have millions of tax paying, law abiding, American born Muslims in America, most of whom are "good family men."
McCain and Palin need to cut through all the veiled references and code phrases and just be truthful and say what they really mean:
"My friends, we don't want a nigger president."
They are beyond pathetic.
I plan to send Obama's campaign $10 for every instance of racist, xenophobic hate speech I hear from the McCain/Palin camp until the election is over.
