Rally attendee calls to 'kill' Obama
Incendiary slams on Senator Obama at McCain/Palin events continue, as evidenced in Scranton, Pennsylvania Tuesday.
As the Times-Tribune reported, after the "Straight Talk Express" deposited Alaska Gov. Palin at the Riverfront Sports Complex to speak to a crowd of about 4,500, one audience member shouted "Kill him!" amid audience booing as GOP congressional candidate Chris Hackett mentioned Obama.
Other epithets hurled against Obama at such events include "treason," "Arab" and "traitor." Senator McCain himself has addressed the incitements, fueled in part by campaign ads accusing Senator Obama of having terrorist ties, by calling Obama a "decent family man" whom one need not fear in the White House.
