As poll numbers indicate a secure lead for Barack Obama in the last few weeks before Election Day, attendees at various GOP rallies have vented their frustration with the democratic nominee through an onslaught of racially charged attacks. Signs that link Obama to Osama bin Laden and beliefs that Obama is a terrorist and Muslim have become common among GOP supporters. John McCain, though he promised to run a respectful campaign, seems to encourage such behavior when he asks, “Who is the real Barack Obama?” Furthermore, Palin contributes to the narrative by suggesting there is a relationship between Obama and “domestic terrorists.”
