I'm trying to insinuate that many of McCain-Palin Supporters (A mob) are mindless rednecks that are fun to watch. Now not all McCain-Palin are mindless racist rednecks, but these are the funny ones. And that I'm going to miss the videos of them looking like.... well themselves.
I wonder if any of them have killed themselves yet?

If they are sane well adjusted individuals, and they most likely are . . . they will get mad weep, moan, and gnash their teeth for a few weeks, then get over it. Whether or not you (plural) voted for him, he is going to be our president . . . like it or not.

Oh I love the fact he's going to be our next president. I can't wait for it. I just worry about the ppl in these videos.
If you watched those videos you will not see any sane well adjusted individuals. Just mindless redneck racists. I can't even understand the level of hate when A child says "ppl have to wear glove to touch him or the black will rub off" or an old lady says "if he becomes president the blacks will take over"
Maybe the McCain-Palin camp would have done better if they did not pander to those ppl.
Unfortunately, there are extremist crazies in every camp. Fortunately, they make up a very small percentage of otherwise sensible people. Sensible people, of course, are not nearly as fun as crazies to watch on tv, so that's who we see in clips like this.

It's fascinating to go and watch these, now that several more months have passed. I wonder what the people in this video think, now? My other thought is the "terrorist by association" reminds me far too much of the McCarthy anti-communist crusade of the 1950's and '60's. "Anybody who's a friend of a communist must be one, too!" Alot of good and decent people's lives were ruined because of that fear-mongering, and did they catch one communist spy? No, they did not. Meanwhile, several spies for the Soviet Union were working inside the FBI. some were there for 20 or 30 years, even. The lesson? Fear-driven hunts rarely catch the bad guys.

Those in power that did thos witch hunts "knew" they were not Communists. They were doing it for several reasons. If the other person was a political opponent, it was a way for then to eliminate their competition. If they weren't a political power, it was to assert their own political power over someone to make themselves look good in the eyes of the media.
This video is another example of such. A political power using his enemies ferver (spelling?) to promote their own ideals. That is all politics is, using someone to your advantage to get done what you want to get done.
