What kind of country are we living in? Has a large segment of the population completely lost their minds?? First we have this story from Florida:
The home of a Central Florida Republican headquarters manager was shot up and damaged over his support of Sen. John McCain, the man told police.
And it gets even worse. Check out this story from Pittsburgh:
Police spokeswoman Diane Richard said the robber took $60 from Todd, then became angry when he saw a McCain bumper sticker on the victim's car. The attacker then punched and kicked the victim, before using the knife to scratch the letter "B" into her face, Richard said.
When you add these stories to the story I posted about yesterday when the McCain/Palin bus was shot at, and I really worry what's going to happen on election day. Seriously, can we afford to allow this attitude to prevail in the U.S.? But this is what gets me:
The Obama-Biden campaign released a statement, commenting on the attack. The statement said, "Our thoughts and prayers are with the young woman for her to make a speedy recovery, and we hope that the person who perpetrated this crime is swiftly apprehended and brought to justice."
Where is the condemnation for the action? The outrage that this is going on in his name and for his campaign? At least Obama's competition cared enough to contact the girl to check on her welfare. It's not enough to say "I hope he's arrested", you've got to say "Stop this right now. No campaign is worth someone's life and/or health, and I will not continue if this is the only way I can achieve victory". I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for that statement, are you?

UPDATE: It was reported today that the girl who claimed she was attacked and carved up made the whole thing up. Now she says she was driving and looked in the mirror and saw the black eyes and "B" on her cheek, but can't remember how they got there. Okayyy! In addition, the moron at the McCain office who shot his mouth off to the press needs to be stomped into the ground for instigating such a ruckus. The girl is being held in a facility for mental evaluation and has been charged with filing a false report. She could go to prison for two years, and in my opinion, should. Things like this cannot be tolerated. The same thing happened with Susan Smith, who blamed a black man for kidnapping her two little boys, when in reality she had driven her car into a lake with the kids strapped inside, screaming for help. We don't need more gasoline on the fire called race relations.
