I think this bears some introspection:
bloggerinterrupted hits up a McCain/Palin interview to find out what the boots on the ground think about Obama and Sarah Palin:
Now to be fair: I know a number of individuals who hold what can only be described as well-principled and reasoned opposition to the Obama/Biden ticket’s stated policies, and I firmly believe that this country needs to start treating a difference in political opinion as something much more elevated than which side of a Buckeyes/Wolverines rivalry you fall on.
The atmosphere in the most recent McCain/Palin rallies has moved beyond throwing red meat to the base. It’s rancorous and hateful, and I find it telling that McCain found himself unable to say to Obama’s face the things he and Palin are saying on the stump. But more than anything, I worry greatly about what will happen in the (seemingly very likely) event that Obama wins on November 4th. This isn’t a time for divisiveness and encouraging cries of ‘terrorist’ and ‘kill him’ against a political opponent, and it certainly isn’t the time for the faces of a political party to endorse the same with their silence.
