Two anti-Obama hate epithets were shouted today at rallies for John McCain and Sarah Palin, one calling for his death.
In Albuquerque, New Mexico, McCain “pushed his campaign’s most recent line of attack against Obama: that the Democratic nominee represents a relatively unknown risk,” reports CNN’s Politicker Ticker.
“‘All people want to know is: What has this man ever actually accomplished in government?,” McCain said. ‘What does he plan for America? In short: Who is the real Barack Obama?’ Someone in the crowd responded by yelling: “Terrorist!” The crowd roared, and McCain seemed startled, but it is unclear whether he actually heard what the man shouted. He did not respond to the attack.”
The Washington Post‘ s Dana Milbank, filing from Clearwater, Florida, wrote that Palin went into her Obama-hangin’-with-Bill Ayers-the-terrorist riff in front of a large crowd. “And according to the New York Times, he was a domestic terrorist and part of a group that, quote, ‘launched a campaign of bombings that would target the Pentagon and our U.S. Capitol,'” she continued.
The crowd loudly booed, Milbank reports. “Kill him!” proposed one man in the audience.
