* "I'm scared of an Obama presidency."

It's one thing to play dirty during an election. But, what the fuck is this crap? Now, I know we've seen some hate mongering.. Farrakhan, Minister Wright and so on... but the statements above are from your everyday American people. What does that say about our state of mind as a country. We are fucked up indeed.
This is some scary shit, man. McCain and Palin have ignited something they might regret. This could lead to an assassination attempt on Obama, and Palin should take the fault for it. Regardless of who wins the election, this is the scariest thing I've seen on TV. Pure American Hate. Bad move of McCain to chose Palin as a running mate, her, along with the economy and hate mongering might just bring them down. And it's too bad to. I'm a democrat and I always wanted to see McCain, the American Hero, run for president. But once he chose Palin, it didn't feel right. Now I know why.
For the sake of America, I hope the right man wins the election and takes us out of this funk we are in.
