But words can have more serious consequences than lost votes and we've already had a glimpse of the Palin effect.
Dana Milbank of The Washington Post reported that media representatives in Clearwater were greeted with taunts, thunder sticks and profanity. One Palin supporter shouted an epithet at an African-American soundman and said, "Sit down, boy."
McCain may want to call off his pit bull before this war escalates.

Last week, I pointed out how the scales fell away from Kathleen Parker's eyes and she suddenly realized to her regret that some of her colleagues on the right don't take kindly to criticisms.
Well, K-Pax has had yet another revelation about her instigated brand of politics:
Yea, um, not to put too fine a point on this, K-Pax, but you brought this on yourself. Where were you when your conservative "colleagues" were calling Bill Clinton a "scumbag"? When Rush Limbaugh was calling Chelsea Clinton a "dog"? When John McCain was laughing when constituents were calling Hillary Clinton a "bitch"?
The comments to this column, which is actually fairly reasonable until you consider who is writing them, make K-Pax out to be a criminal or worse. Perhaps this experience will have softened her, I don't know. I can only hope that she can find some solace in the fact that she's not the first, nor the last, person to be the target of the hate-filled venom of the Town Hall mafia.
