I agree!

The reason why they would say "lets stone her, old school", is because Philly fans are remembered for booing and throwing ice balls (stoning) Santa on the rink one Christmas. That is what that is in reference to.

The comment's we've seen and heard at McCain Palin rallys have occurred in the presence of the candidates and until Friday, the rhetoric was encouraged.

And Palin even incited the crowd by introducing the word "terrorist" regarding Obama in her speech.

I thought the McCain/Palin stopped this. Is it still happening?

But only the locals would know what that meant...and she surely wouldn't know it. I don't want the Obama campaign to be soiled by this kind of stuff because he would NOT approve of it.

That's not what they said...they explained what the meaning was. So, the intent was probably different than it sounded, but it STILL was not okay.

It's not cool to accuse someone of having a sentiment they never expressed.

This is about the hundredth post/thread on this. It has already been discussed again and again. Is it still happening???? If it stopped, why are people still complaining????

There is no use complaining here. If it is still happening, then I will e-mail the McCain/Palin campaign to STOP it.

Absolutely not. That is just why it was said, and why they said "old school". Philly fans are notorious for that Santa incident.

I dont see any reason for you to slam mentally handicapped individuals either...while you're being so sensitive about black and feminine issues, you might want to check your handicapist language; "retardation" has nothing to do with it. There is no similarity between public behavior which you find offensive and individuals with cognitive handicaps.
