Fear of An Obama Planet

Did you ever wonder why the closer water gets to the drain the harder it swirls? It's as if it knows what's coming.

That seems to be the story on the Straight Trash Express these days. And the Commander seems to be losing his grip, referring to Obama as "that one" and treating a black man who asked a question at the recent debate as something of a low grade moron: "I'll bet you haven't heard of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac." The contempt is palpable.

Sarah Palin, self professed pitbull in lipstick has been active as well, and her rallies in Florida and other places, well stocked with fellow travelers and stage managed to a fault (because nothing happens by accident on the campaign trail), have greeted her use of Obama's name with hoots of derision, cries of treason! and in one memorable case "Kill him!" 

I've usually got something smart to say but here, I'm just stunned. 

Is this what the party of Lincoln became? Do these people think that this is going to win them an election?

We've got a ways to go here, but I'm calling this one. Stick a fork in the Straight Talk Express and send the pitbull back to the dog pound.
