Two Arrested for Hanging Obama Effigy on Kentucky Campus. Hanging the effigy wasn’t illegal. That was just extremely poor judgment. Arresting somebody for doing it? That’s wrong. That’s way beyond wrong. An effigy of Sarah Palin hung in California for weeks. Disgusting–but the police kept their distance. (Not out of principle, from what I can tell.) But hang an effigy of Barack Obama–the Annointed One, the Saint, the One–and you’re in jail. This. Is. Wrong.
And it’s just what the loudest of the Obama supporters Think. Is. Right. If he wins–and, more important, if his supporters get the levers of power they’re drooling over just now–we are in for a historic, dangerous, vicious, divisive time like we haven’t seen since… oh, I’ll just come out and say it: Not since the division of the Civil War. I hope Obama calls down his goons before they get out of the gate. Does he care? We’ll soon find out.
