There is something really disconcerting about the rhetoric being unleashed on the public by the Palin/McCain ticket.
I remember old drunken Joe McCarthy. I remember the crazy talk of law and order that led to National Guard kids shooting a bunch of college kids at Ohio State and Kent State, I remember the crazy stuff before Bobby Kennedy was shot, I remember the angry underground unhinged garbage about John Kennedy. I remember all the crazy crap said about Martin Luther King Jr. It isn't enough to say we can't control all that the crowds say at our rallies. I remember the hero-worship by the rabid pro-life crew of the man that shot and killed the abortion doctor. The worst thing we have in this country right now is allowing for plausible deniability. Not all of the unhinged crazy bigots are in jail or committed.
