Lopsided Sense of Outrage

So, a couple of idiots at a McCain-Palin rally apparently called Obama an Arab or a terrorist, and the entire McCain campaign, Republican base, or whatever, are said to be fomenting racism. And McCain and his advisers are so easily intimidated that they waste 48 precious campaign hours defending themselves against something they have not done. I received a call on my radio show last week from an Obama supporter accusing President Bush and John McCain of being terrorists and mass murderers. And these kind of calls have actually been going on since the beginning of the Iraq war. And in this regard my show is not unique. Yet, where is the outrage? There is none. And are Obama and his campaign responsible for the latest of these outbursts? Come on! What a crock.
