This Stuff, or Why I Want This Election To Be Over
Can we just hold this election tomorrow and be done with it? Not just because Obama's up in the polls right now (though, for real, let's hold on to that lead, huh?), but because this kind of ugliness seems to be really ramping up now.
Yes, I realize this was some liberal smartass picking up a camera and finding the most ignorant ones, but he was pretty upfront about that, for one, and it didn't seem to take a whole lot of effort to find these ones.
And yes, there are liberals who are just as mouthy and ill-informed. Who call Sarah Palin a stewardess and McCain a corpse. But this year especially, the other side -- the side highlighted in that video -- is just uglier, isn't it?
It is. Claiming Obama is a covert Muslim terrorist --a sleeper cell unto himself -- is uglier than anything the left could possibly dream up about McCain. It's dirty on both sides, sure, but one side is so, SO much dirtier. And the electorate can't make them shut up fast enough.
