Another Man Yells ‘Kill Him!’ About Obama At Palin Rally

The Times-Tribune of Scranton, Penn., reports that at a rally for Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, it got a little ugly again.

From live-blogging:

"Chris Hackett addressed the increasingly feisty crowd as they await the arrival of Gov. Palin.

"Each time the Republican candidate for the seat in the 10th Congressional District mentioned Barack Obama the crowd booed loudly.

"One man screamed ‘kill him!’…

"The outburst came during a round of booing from the crowd after Mr. Hackett said Mr. Obama should come to Pennsylvania and learn what the state’s values are."

Couple thoughts.

One: I’m a Pennsylvanian. "Kill him" is not representative of the state’s values. Nor is this, from Palin-haters.

Two: Interesting post from the conservative Ace of Spaces about such yellers. "Some Republicans are, alas, the exact same sort of unsophisticated angry morons who shout things like ‘Terrorist’ about Obama when McCain is speaking, thus putting him on the extreme defensive, or having temper tantrums on blogs when the proprietor requests they refrain from exposing him to any lawsuits. They substantially vindicate every stereotype the left and MSM has about us, and make the rest of us not only look bad, but make us squeamish from even being political associates. And they lose us precious votes….Wanna know why we’re losing? Wanna know why McCain had to make a statement about Obama not being dangerous and being a good and decent man? Because you geniuses embarrassed him with your stupidity and compelled him to say that."
