So Much for "Toning it Down"

Supporters hold up signs during a rally for Republican presidential candidate John McCain and his running mate Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin at the Virginia Beach Convention Center October 13, 2008 in Virginia Beach, Virginia. McCain Monday desperately sought to win back voters hit by the economic crisis and flocking in droves to Democrat Barack Obama, saying he had a plan to stop the meltdown.

correct me if I'm wrong, but the campaigns create these signs, right? the confiscate signs people bring in, and distribute the ones the campaign makes.

I have no idea if the campaign created these signs but they are pathetic indeed.

These fucktards vote...thats some scary shit.

It's a heckuva lot funnier than the home-made button one gentleman was sporting at a McCain rally this weekend featuring a rifle target-site over Obama's face. THAT was skank.

These signs are almost clever! In a the-bar-has-been-lowered-down-down-down sorta way.

I am really not sure if I should be scared that these idiots are so vehement in their expressions of (veiled?) racism and violence, or thankful that it's really only idiots and partisans who are expressing themselves like this.

/word verification = jrwaxlty - LOL

And then today when Obama mentioned McCain and someone booed, Obama said "we don't need that."

Class act.

The mob is loose - I do worry. This is sick.

I think there is a Latina woman near the front! Wow. Such diversity!

This is what remains of McCain's base.
He's down to stems and seeds now.

And I thought the purple band-aids in 2004 were as low as the Repugs could go. It just keeps getting worse.

Speaking of "toning it down", did anybody pick up one of those
"Sarah Palin is a cunt" t-shirts that were available from
the Obama campaign website before they were taken down?

Karen Zipdrive said...

Speaking of cunts, why are anonymous commenters afraid to use their real names when they post such stupid stuff?
Never mind, I answered my own question.

P.S. She IS a cunt. So?

Afraid? Yes, I'm quaking in my boots. Is "zipdrive" your real name?
I'm sorry. Maybe you should try posting as anonymous instead.

See it's kinda hard to claim that the other party is failing
to "tone it down" when people affiliated with the Obama campaign
call her a cunt.

I imagine the Obama campaign would explode in self-righteous anger
if someone affiliated with the McCain campaign wore an "Obama is a nigger" t-shirt.

Kinda hypocritical....
