Just goes to show that neither side can really claim the high ground in an election - supporters on both sides are prone to be jerks.

::::::::

Okay, now THIS is disappointing. Shame on whomever thought this (NSFW!!!)would be acceptable wear for political rallies.

"Sarah Palin is a C@#T" How charming.

How does wearing that t-shirt make you any different from the people who are deriding Obama because of his ancestry, his middle name, or his time in a Muslim country?

"C@#t" and "b*tch" are "n*gg*r" and "towelhead," too.

Is Palin an idiot? Yes. Is Palin hypocritical? Yes. Should she be pilloried for those things? Hell yes.

But leave her gender out of it, please. These shirts are making us look no better than the other side. We HAVE to be better than that.

(That said, I want one of these)
