Palin appears to be showing her true colors, whipping up the crowds at her rallies into a frenzy of hate.
I give McCain his due, in the film clip I saw he was trying to calm the crowds down, trying to instill some reason into the insanity and saying the right things. But the mob mentality that adores Sarah Palin only settled down to grumble.
McCain said to the crowds that this is an election about who is better suited to lead, not about his opponent being a bad person, he reiterated that Obama is a good person, a 'family man' he called him.
But it is too little too late. He is discovering that the weapon he chose to fight this campaign with, fear, is a very sharp two edged sword. He is also discovering that it is hard to put the genie back in the bottle. Trite little cliches, I know. They got that way from being too true too often.
