And furthermore ... money quote from the wonderfully cutting Mr. Rich:
But we’re not at Election Day yet, and if voters are to have their final say, both America and Obama have to get there safely. The McCain campaign has crossed the line between tough negative campaigning and inciting vigilantism, and each day the mob howls louder. The onus is on the man who says he puts his country first to call off the dogs, pit bulls and otherwise.
It is long past fucking time the press started calling out Grampy and Bible Spice for their racist, hate-filled rhetoric. This is not, and never has been, something that could be mistaken for your standard, garden variety smear campaign. It’s a lynch mob – complete with hysterical villagers screaming about the "stranger" in their midst. The only things missing are the pitch forks and torches. And the Republicans own it.
Looks like the gloves and, more importantly, the white hoods are finally off.
