“You need gloves to touch him.”

Today I watched a video of a young white boy entering a McCain/Palin rally in Ohio with his parents.  He said, “you need gloves to touch him” referring to Barack Obama.  “You need gloves to touch him.”  His parents laughed when he said it.  The boy was no older than 8 or 9.  Don’t tell me that kind of talk isn’t dangerous.  This should and will be McCain’s legacy, his unbridled, hate-mongering campaign, the campaign he keeps pursuing then backing away from.  If Obama was holding rallies in front of crowds of black people who called McCain a ’terrorist’ and yelled ‘kill him’ referring to McCain, Obama would be in jail.  But McCain/Palin smile and wave at the crowds as people yell ‘nigger’ and ‘behead him’ about Obama.  Why is that?  And why haven’t the Clintons denounced McCain?  Why did it take David Gergen on CNN to bring up the possibility of violence growing out of the McCain rallies?  I’ve used up all the energy I can muster writing about Bill and Hillary Clinton and their blind ambition tour of the past 2 years.  I trust they end up in the same political trash heap as McCain and Palin. 

McCain and Palin have unleashed a monster.  Trouble is, it didn’t take them long to do it.  The monster is just under the surface, scratch and sniff and it comes out of hiding, looking for someone to blame for the mess our country is in.  Hitler found a monster to blame in the 1930s.  That was only 80 years ago.

    People are in general afraid of what they don’t know. They hang onto what they “think they know” in hopes of it being right. It rarely is.

    Anyone who has listened to all of the speeches and looked at the McCains should know he is not the man for the job. I don’t like his sneer; I don’t like his generalizations; I don’t like his fear/ hate statements–all designed to attract those who really don’t know. What he wants is not so much the presidency; it is to be top dog. God forbid he is elected.
