True Colors

In a post below, frequent commenter I'm Not Ned says "But they can't use the "N" word and have nothing else left."

The times, they are a-changin'...

Worse, Palin's routine attacks on the media have begun to spill into ugliness. In Clearwater, arriving reporters were greeted with shouts and taunts by the crowd of about 3,000. Palin then went on to blame Katie Couric's questions for her "less-than-successful interview with kinda mainstream media." At that, Palin supporters turned on reporters in the press area, waving thunder sticks and shouting abuse. Others hurled obscenities at a camera crew. One Palin supporter shouted a racial epithet at an African American sound man for a network and told him, "Sit down, boy."

It's not the first time I've been wrong.

Lesson learned: Never think you understand a maverick.

It's going to get worse every day up til the election, too. Bet on it. They'll be hanging a black man in effigy at her rallies before Halloween.

And I don't think it's going to get better after the election and inauguration, either. These people are truly unhinged, and one of their absolutely worst fears is about to become real.

Combine all that with a massive recession...ugh. Look out below.
