Working overtime to quell the masses
I see once again as soon as the media looked the other way ("oooh! shiny thing!") the McCain/Palin rallies went right back to their high level of rhetoric - McCain in Virginia:
“I’ve got to give you some straight talk. Let me give you the state of the race today,” McCain told the crowd. “We have 17 days to go. We're 6 points down. The national media has written us off…. But my friends in all this planning they forgot to let you decide. My friends, we've got them just where we want them.”(emphasis added)
The line has become a familiar one – and drew a now-familiar reaction from the strongly-Republican crowd, which began booing and chanting “Liberal media!” One woman threw a pack of gum at CNN Correspondent Ed Henry.
Right outside the entrance to the outdoor venue, a sign urging voters to "stop Barack Obama" featured the Soviet hammer and sickle, and the Muslim crescent.
I didn't even mention the McCain aide's comment about the "real Virginia", coming right on the heels of Palin's comment about "pro-America areas". Yeah, GOP, it's really the Dems who're dividing this country, isn't it?
And throwing stuff at the press? Why, how mature.
These are your supporters, Senator McCain. Hope you're happy with them.
