Secret Service Looking Into Threats to Obama at Palin Rallies

b4s_palin100708a_40933c.jpeg
Now before you go comparing John McCain/Sarah Palin rallies where there have been four separate incidents of people in the crowd screaming things like ‘terrorist’, ‘kill him’ and ‘treason’ – before you go comparing those to Klan rallies – know that the Klan no longer has a crowd draw because they decided to stop using incendiary language. So the comparison is unfair…to the Klan.

The reports sounds like they are whipping up a lynch mob. Bridge to nowhere? Bridge to the 17th century.

Anyway, Radar Online is reporting that the Secret Service is now looking into the threats. What exactly are they looking into? Shh it’s a secret.

The question is – when does the media call a spade wielding racist mob a spade wielding racist mob?
