Olbermann: McCain Campaign "Tacitly Inciting Lunatics To Violence" Politics

Keith Olbermann brings it:

I hate to even mention the A-word, but if McCain and Palin keep on going like they're going it will be hard not to conclude that they're trying to get Obama killed. An outrageous accusation, I realize, but they're not idiots. They see what they are stirring up, and yet they continue. If they're not actually trying to get him killed, clearly they are at least willing to run that risk. It's beyond despicable.

If you're too young to remember the assassinations of the sixties, this may all sound like hysteria. But believe me, it's all too real. By labeling Obama a terrorist and a traitor, they've not only given tacit permission for him to be assassinated, they've made it so whoever does it will be a hero defending the homeland. If that's not an invitation to violence, I don't know what is.
