This is what demonizing political opponents creates

Holy cow, pretty soon these people are going to start wearing uniforms.

I've seen other videos of these rallies and, as my friend Walt mentioned to me earlier, McCain looks a little uncomfortable by the rage and anger of these crowds. It's a little frightening, maybe, to be in the middle of such a whirlpool of rage. I'm curious as to what these people are so angry about. Their party has been in the majority in Washington for most of the last 8 years. There is a brainless fundamentalist right wing puppet in the White House, evolution is on defense, funding for science is way down, over fifty percent of Americans believe in angels and there are giant evangelical churches all over the damn place. What could they possibly be all riled up about? Oh yeah, McCain and his supporters are portraying their political opponents as enemies of our country. If anything ugly or violent happens in the next year or so it will all come back to people like Sean Hannity and Sarah Palin and their reckless rhetoric. It's really time for those in charge of the Republican's propaganda to step back and look at what they are creating.
