John McCain and Sarah Palin, you are playing with fire, and you know it. You are unleashing the monster of American hatred and prejudice, to the peril of all of us. You are doing this in wartime. You are doing this as our economy collapses. You are doing this in a country with a history of assassinations.--Frank Schaeffer for the Baltimore Sun

Thank you for this. And thanks to Frank Schaeffer for saying something.

I agree. The McCain/Palin modus operendi is getting incredibly ugly and inflammatory.

I think they should step up the attacks

Care to explain why, Rick?

there was a mccain-palin sign across the street from my house when i got home last night. i stopped my car, took my flashlight with me, pulled it up and laid it down. no way is that gonna be associated with MY house. nuh-uh. apparently they were on a spree in my town yesterday, because there were lots of them around. grrrrrrrrrr...
between that, and question 1 in MA (something that would pretty much kill tons of teachers' jobs among other things), i'm scared for the future.

I hope they heard it loud and clear.

WTF is going on? I have just seen tape on FOX NEWS with McCain doing a 180 an defending Obama as a decent American and family man! Supporters BOOED! (I knew the LSD would eventually catch up with me)

RJ, I heard that on the radio, then read this article, almost like McCain read it too.

Wow Shaina I love your support for the first amendment. Talk about the McCain hatred. Is this how it is going to be when your side gets in charge -- no other opinions allowed? I guess Orwell was just off by about 25 years.

Sorry Erin, but I cannt believe no one here had an issue with the person going onto someone else's property and removing a political sign. "not in my neighborhood" -- and Republicans are called intolerant and filled with hate? What if her neighborhood was overwhelmingly in favor of McCain. Should Shaina be denied poliical signs that her neighbors do not agree with? Do you all also support vandalizing cars with bumber stickers withwhich you disagree?

I do not possess the vocabulary to express my disgust for this person's actions.

hoosierboy, Erin is not responsible for the actions of the hundreds of people who read and comment on her site. if you are so disgusted, there is a link to Shaina's site, you can go and let her know yourself. be careful not to stereotype all 'liberals' (oh i see that's already happened over at your own blog).

and no, stealing signs is not cool (or legal??).
