Elsewhere: Hate is bi-partisan

In case you were starting to think that the fear-mongering haters this election were all of the right-wing-Obama-is-a-Muslim-terrorist variety, some hater in West Hollywood has hung an effigy of Sarah Palin by a noose from his house and engulfed another effigy of the Republican actually running for president (I know, I keep forgetting too) in flames on the chimney. 

According to the LA Times, sheriff’s officials don’t consider it a hate crime.

Still, it doesn’t have to be a hate crime to be hate. This is anything but good Halloween fun. In fact, it’s just as disgusting and counter-productive as that jerk in Ohio who thought it would be a good idea to hang a ghost with an upside Obama sticker on it in front of his house.

Only one more week until the madness ends.
