To call last night’s debate a town hall or open forum was a super practical joke perpetrated on the voting public.
There wasn’t anything open or free-wheeling about it.
The deck was stacked with a bunch of unsmiling robots, who mumbled out their pre-selected questions, while reading them off their pitiful scraps of pre-screened, pre-programmed paper.
But what if…
What if one of them would have had the moxie to go off-script and blurted out: Hey, Johnny, I dare you to look Barack in the eyes and say you see T-E-R-R-O-R-I-S-T staring back at you.
You hide behind your bulldog in lipstick and let her do it; it’s time for you to be a man and do it for yourself. Face to face. Here and now.
It’s time to own up to the truth, the truth that you’ve been lettin' Sarah Palin lie for you.
She lies for you so frequently with a wink and a nod, in a crescendo pitch that she’s inciting your manic crowds to riot.
How dare you stand for and tolerate anyone shouting out “terrorist” or “kill him” at a Palin/McCain rally?
Yeah, I said it that way deliberately, because you are not a leader, my friend.
With the first incident, you should have been out there with a bullhorn out-shouting the asses.
You should be throwing one of your temper tantrum that you are famous for, and laying down the law.
You should be out there tellin' them that you won't tolerate your supporters behavin' that way. You will not tolerate it for one instant.
You should be telling them that anyone who dares try it again will be instantly arrested and carried out of your rally on a rail.
You toss people from your rallies for doing no more than standing quietly with a sign or wearing a button you don’t like, because they dast to disagree with you or challenge you.
How McCain un-American, squelch free speech of you.
