The spittle factor: publicizing Palin's supporters

By their supporters ye shall know them...
Talking Points Memo | Her Bile Bubbles Over

.... Palin supporters turned on reporters in the press area, waving thunder sticks and shouting abuse. Others hurled obscenities at a camera crew. One Palin supporter shouted a racial epithet at an African American sound man for a network and told him, 'Sit down, boy.'...
Palin is gathering a nice slice of the nastiest bits of America. I wonder how that sits with the religious right?

Sure, we know the religious right has a lot of nasties. It's not been that long since "religious" leaders were signaling approval of fire bombing abortion clinics. (Terrorism, technically.)

They're not all nasty though. Palin's supporters are going to turn some stomachs. It won't convert them into Obama supporters, but it may convert them into non-voters.

This would be a good time for videographers to put Palin supporters on YouTube. The more spittle covered the better.
