McCain/Palin Supporters

How can any decent person tolerate and support a campaign that encourages and sells this message?

What will the GOP and these people do if Obama is elected in November? If people really believe this about Obama, what will be their patriotic duty in November should Obama be President? Accept that a "terrorist" is leading their country? Does this give the "war on terror" a new meaning? What would you do if you really thought someone was a terrorist with friends who try to kill your family? It is utterly despicable and completely irresponsible. Look at the viciousness and anger of these folks, whipped up into a frenzy by the narrative now being promoted officially by McCain. The closest I have ever seen of this kind of frenzied anger are old news reels of anti-desegregationist rallies of the 50s. The potential outcome of this strategy is terrifying, truly terrifying.
