"Kill him!" again

In Pennsylvania today, the Hate Talk Express motors on:
"Chris Hackett addressed the increasingly feisty crowd as they await the arrival of Gov. Palin.Each time the Republican candidate for the seat in the 10th Congressional District mentioned Barack Obama the crowd booed loudly.

One man screamed "kill him!"

Supporters have been noted shouting “kill him,” “terrorist,” “off with his head” and other equally incendiary terms about Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama. Others have directly suggested Mr. Obama is a Muslim, which he is not, or a traitor. Some comments even drew rebuke from Republican presidential nominee John McCain."
As far as McCain's "rebuke", too little too late, I'm afraid -- if he really wanted to return a modicum of civility to his campaign, he'd stop Palin from telling the lies that get these cretins all torqued up. But he isn't stopping her and she's too dishonest to even admit that her diatribes are the lowest kind of hate-mongering. From Huffpo, here's a video compilation of some of the hate going on at GOP rallies:

And it's spreading...
