From the report of an incident yesterday:
CALEDONIA, Wis. -- Police in Caledonia are investigating the assault of a campaign volunteer as she was canvassing for Senator Barack Obama Saturday afternoon.
In an exclusive interview with 12 News, 58 year-old Nancy Takehara of Chicago says she was going door-to-door when she came across a disgruntled homeowner.
“The next thing I know he’s telling us we’re not his people, we’re probably with ACORN, and he started screaming and raving,” Takehara said. “He grabbed me by the back of the neck. I thought he was going to rip my hair out of my head. He was pounding on my head and screaming. The man terrified me.”
Here are some words from Mr. Sponge from a couple of days ago:
When radio hosts like Hugh Hewitt tell their audiences that voting for Obama will literally get them killed; and when guys like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity go on and on about Barry Hussein Obama's supposed association with terrorists; and when the McCain campaign itself resorts to a strategy that paints Obama as a socialist Other who literally doesn't see America in the same way that good folks like John, Cindy, Sarah, and Todd do; how is it a surprise that GOP voters are putting 2 + 2 together by expressing fear and anger that the damn terrorist black Muslim might get elected?
Let me answer this for you in no uncertain terms: It is not a surprise that the GOP base is behaving this way. It is not a surprise that a constituency which has been the target of 8+ years of non reality-based drivel has suddenly woke up in a country that has two trillion-dollar mistakes, a drowned city, and all-around corruption; and that they can only bring themselves to point their fingers at the only villain they truly know: f'ing liberals.
How do you suppose that citizen of the leafy groves of Caledonia, Wis. gets his information, boys and girls?
And just yesterday afternoon the new MOB mayor tells us to go into survivalist mode because of the financial meltdown caused by the liberals:
And much to the surprise of the liberals that will have caused [the current financial crisis], the rich will get even richer as assets will return to their rightful owners as the wealthy scoop up many and varied bargains in equities and real estate discarded by those who have become under or unemployed.
So don’t wait for the effects of an Obama administration and an activist liberal congress to trickle down to your financial situation. Prepare yourself now.
That's right! Be armed, and be sure to beat every fifty-eight year old woman who comes to your door canvassing for Barack Obama.
John McCain and his handlers have decided to lose this one ugly, and the Republican party wants to be sure the country in ungovernable during an Obama administration. It may be already, with all the cronyism, looting and free booting, and general corruption of the last eight years, coupled with the fact that a big part of the wealth that many Americans believed they had was Raptured out of their pockets.
