This is what we have been warning about on the left; that Sarah Palin’s increasingly dangerous rhetoric was putting Obama at danger. Well it looks like the Secret Service also agrees with us:
The Republican vice presidential candidate attracted criticism for accusing Mr Obama of “palling around with terrorists”, citing his association with the sixties radical William Ayers.
The attacks provoked a near lynch mob atmosphere at her rallies, with supporters yelling “terrorist” and “kill him” until the McCain campaign ordered her to tone down the rhetoric.
But it has now emerged that her demagogic tone may have unintentionally encouraged white supremacists to go even further.
The Secret Service warned the Obama family in mid October that they had seen a dramatic increase in the number of threats against the Democratic candidate, coinciding with Mrs Palin’s attacks.
This also goes hand in hand with Palin being a dumb ass. Anyone with a shred of common sense would know that such a dangerous tone could lead to dangers against their opponent. Palin is too dense to figure that out. She is a danger to this nation, and if the Republicans want her to run in 2012 they better think about what might happen then. If she decides to go on the same attack paths as she did this year then the Secret Service might actually have to take action. I got a feeling the brain trust in the GOP also feels the same way, which is why we are seeing this increase in leaks about the real Sarah Palin. They want to destroy her before 2012 so they don’t have to take this very dangerous risk.
