Obama Rally Draws 100,000 in Missouri.

In Missouri over 100,000 people turned out to hear Barack Obama.

The excitement this guy generates really is something else. Republicans like Michelle Malkin have mocked Obama's claim that "something is stirring" in the American heartland, but, looking at these phenomenal crowds, it's hard to deny that the effect he is having is simply staggering. Indeed, even some lifelong Republicans are voting Democrat for the first time in their lives thanks to Obama.

And it's having an effect, even in places like Missouri:

For months Missouri polls put Obama as much as ten percentage points behind Republican John McCain. It was widely believed that McCain’s pick of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate would have won over the state’s conservatives and boosted his chances there. So far, that hasn’t happened.

A Rasmussen poll released on Friday shows Obama leading in Missouri 52% to 46% for McCain.

And Sen. Claire McCaskill had harsh words for Palin, who made a comment which is simply staggering.
Referring to comments Palin made earlier this week in North Carolina about “pro-America” states, McCaskill said “We have reached a new low in America politics when a candidate dares to say that one part of America is pro-America and another part is anti-America.”
Palin's latest comments are actually beyond belief. She is now actually saying that a state which votes Democratic is basically anti-American.

I really believe that this election will one day be studied as an example of political negativism which has previously been unmatched. It's certainly unmatched in the amount of proven lies which the Republicans have blithely repeated long after what they are saying has been shown to be untrue. They joy is that it isn't working. Even Republican newspapers are endorsing Obama at a rate that McCain must find staggering.

His problem is that he has no message, which only highlights the negativity which fuels every day of his campaign. Obama took the moral high ground and, from the record breaking crowds that are turning out to hear him, he made the right choice.

This Hate Fest is almost over. And, with Palin now labelling half of her fellow citizens "anti-American", it won't be over a moment too soon.


This is how bad it's looking for McCain:
So a canvasser goes to a woman's door in Washington, Pennsylvania. Knocks. Woman answers. Knocker asks who she's planning to vote for. She isn't sure, has to ask her husband who she's voting for. Husband is off in another room watching some game. Canvasser hears him yell back, "We're votin' for the n***er!"

Woman turns back to canvasser, and says brightly and matter of factly: "We're voting for the n***er."
That's breathtaking.
