Palin's McMob: the Ohio vids...

YouTube videos shot by an Ohio Obama supporter of some Palin rally attendees confirm once again what we already know: that negative, viral, email campaigning works, at least with some people. I subscribe to a few such 'newsletters' that explain/allude to/imply the "Obama terrorist bloodline" in no uncertain terms (some are more subtle than others but most strike me as pretty effective in convincing those desperately wanting in fact-checking ability/willingness).

How representative are these people of the Conservative movement and in particular the Palin crowd? Probably not very and they don't have to be either. Despite Obama's now undeniable lead in just about every poll, the prospect of a photo-finish, decided by a few thousand (or less) voters is still very real. And then a small army of "Obama is a terrorist" people would come in very handy, see also McCain's latest efforts at reviving the Ayers thingy (Once a Terrorist, Always a Terrorist)...

Watch them: funny and shocking at once...

Part 1:



Part 2: You need gloves to touch him (dixit: a child...)



And on the heels of that story, news that McCain has to tell a rally crowd that Obama in not an Arab. Things gettin' just a tad too ugly right now?

All guilt by association tactics should be denounced.

I heard on National Public Radio, a McCain rally in nearby Wisconsin. The crowds are rabid.

I wonder if we'll see a militia revival, with the GOP losing power.

Ren:

It's an incendiary mix: financial meltdown, markets not recovering and one of the most hotly contested elections ever (one in which race also plays a part), all at once.

Sparks may fly (I hope sincerely that they won't)...

Gert: McCain is an idiot for renouncing his supporters. He should instead use the Obama-is-an-Arab punchline to his advantage. For folks like me having a President with Arab blood is unthinkable with the U.S. in a state of war against Islamist Iran and the insurgency in Iraq and Afghanistan.

On second thought, I'm now considering voting for this very "Arab." Seems like he genuinely supports Israel (far less than Bush or McCain but nevertheless) and Palin was just a bad, bad choice for V.P. Besided, McCain is likely to "disintegrate" while in office leaving the she-witch to do his bidding.

I'M CONFUSED...GIVE ME SOME DIRECTION, YOU DARNED LIBERALS;-)
