Anger Is Crowd's Overarching Emotion at McCain Rally

WAUKESHA, Wis., Oct. 9 -- There were shouts of "Nobama" and "Socialist" at the mention of the Democratic presidential nominee. There were boos, middle fingers turned up and thumbs turned down as a media caravan moved through the crowd Thursday for a midday town hall gathering featuring John McCain and Sarah Palin.

"It is absolutely vital that you take it to Obama, that you hit him where it hits, there's a soft spot," said James T. Harris, a local radio talk show host, who urged the Republican nominee to use Barack Obama's controversial former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., and others against him. washington post

I can't decide what elements are worse in the politics of fear.

The fact that these politicians are all friends until its time to campaign against each other where they have no problem painting the other as the new red level "terror threat" from communist China with a tax agenda, or the fact that the gullible crowd eats it up so well they end up in a frothing wide mouthed frenzy.

Even worked up to the point of vandalism and or physical attack.
After the election of course both parties involved go back to hugging each other.

When will we learn we're all in the same boat with these leaders of ours?
