4 weeks until election day

I can't wait for this thing to be over. McCain is fading fast and is going to pull out all the stops over the next month which means it's going to be everything short of holding up a sign that says "Dammit, he's a scary black man!" Time to get the 'ol base all riled up...
At Palin's rally where she once again claimed Obama was buddies with terrorists
In Clearwater, arriving reporters were greeted with shouts and taunts by the crowd of about 3,000. Palin then went on to blame Katie Couric's questions for her "less-than-successful interview with kinda mainstream media." At that, 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."

At another stop in Florida:
In the latest instance of inflammatory outbursts at McCain-Palin rallies, a crowd member screamed "treason!" during an event on Tuesday after Sarah Palin accused Barack Obama of criticizing U.S. troops.

How about another one:
"And, according to the New York Times, he was a domestic terrorist and part of a group that, quote, 'launched a campaign of bombings that would target the Pentagon and our U.S. Capitol,'" she continued.

"Boooo!" the crowd repeated.

"Kill him!" proposed one man in the audience.

I guess it's no surprise that they're now doing everything they can to keep reporters away from the crowd. Not for their actual safety, I guess. Just to make sure they don't write what they say. Like I said, I can't wait for this thing to be over.

Here's the good news. McCain's poll numbers are continuing to crater making Obama an almost 9:1 favorite to win at this point.
