Palin staff keep journalists locked inside press area to prevent them from writing ‘negative things.’»

Constantly under the watchful eyes of security, the media wasn’t permitted to wander around inside Coachman Park to talk to Sarah Palin supporters. When reporters tried to leave the designated press area and head toward the bleachers where the crowd was seated, an escort would dart out of nowhere and confront him or her and say, “Can I help you?” and turn the person around.

When one reporter asked an escort, who would not give her name, why the press wasn’t allowed to mingle, she said that in the past, negative things had been written. The campaign wanted to avoid that possibility Monday.

Palin has still yet to give a single press conference since being tapped as Sen. John McCain’s running mate on August 29.


I WONDER IF THIS IS THE SAME RALLY AT WHICH A SPECTATOR SHOUTED "KILL HIM!" IN REFERENCE TO BARACK OBAMA. :evil: :evil: :evil:

Apparently McSame and Ms. Mooseburger have been doing a fantastic job of preaching to lunatics. So good a job, McSame has been trying to calm them down, and has been booed for doing so.

I hope Obama makes it to election day.

It was one of those damning praise things. He defended Obama by saying he couldn't be an Arab because he was a good family man, implying no Arab could be a good family man. McWar should get about zero votes from Arabs if they were listening. The boos came because the right wing wackos are convinced Obama is Muslim and they don't have enough discernment to know they're not one and the same.

Palin was booed (and cheered) at the Philadelphia Flyers hockey game yesterday, too, although extremely loud music was begun to help drown out the boos. She had brought one of her many children with her, as usual.

I have been seeing some discussions about the role of the Secret Service in the McCain campaign. Apparently, the SS has to investigate every possible threat that may become evident during these political rallies, and they've certainly had their work cut out for them recently with the McCain supporters. The suggestion is that the SS told McCain he'd better tone it down. :?

Yes, I did catch that dig at Arabs. Can't be an Arab and a good family man too, eh?

If the Secret Service is trying to curb the hate from McSame's followers, it is about time! Strikes me as too little too late though. Rightwingers have been feeding that hate for a long time now.
