    And the libs were complaining that Obama would be assassinated. I'd say McCAin is a thousand times more vulnerable...between the terrorist groups wanting Obama for president and the crazed, wild-eyed liberals panicking at the thought of their beloved nominee losing AGAIN I'd say McCain is in a very precarious position......

    Ali, are you sniffing white powder? Wild eyed. Yup, your post fits that description. I heard it will grow hair on the palm of your hand and make you go blind. Be careful.

    My god, what next? It was sent by the DNC.

    ANd yet every time something happens it IS blamed on a Conservative, or I guess you haven't read any of the new threads, someone shoots some, it was a Republican, even when the guy was a Canadian citizen from Somali.

    Some one does something and it was a republican even with no evidence to back the claim up.

    Nothing she's posted is any wilder than the uber-left crap you try to sell. Pot, meet kettle.

    McCain rubbed a lot of folks the wrong way over the water rights in Colorado so that might have a connection. They take their water supply pretty damn serious.

    Inmate may have sent white powder to McCain office
    Thursday, August 21, 2008

    Two of Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign offices were evacuated Thursday after receiving suspicious letters, one of which contained an unknown white powder.

    A government official said a letter sent to the office of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee near Denver contained powder, but was being treated as a hoax and was believed to have been sent by an inmate at a nearby jail in Arapahoe County.

    The letter sent to the office in New Hampshire did not contain powder, but rose suspicions of staffers who were jittery after the Denver area office received its letter.

    Secret Service spokesman Eric Zahren said the two letters are unrelated.

    Despite the likelihood of a hoax, staffers at all the Arizona Republican's campaign offices nationwide were told not to open letters.

    ....

    Mr. Zahren said the other letter was received at Mr. McCain's campaign office in Manchester, N.H. That letter did not contain powder, but further information about it was not available Thursday evening.

    I wonder if Jeepers will call conservatives the "new Jews" and blame Air America?

    I'd say that anyone in the public's eye is in a precarious position, frankly.

    There's no shortage of nutters out there.
