From the Nacogdoches Daily Sentinel, in Deep East Texas (this is a snippet, click link for more):
Obama-Biden signs have been disappearing across the nation. Some Democratic Party chairmen are encouraging supporters to take in their signs at night to prevent thefts.

The same thing is happening in Nacogdoches, specifically along Raguet and Austin streets, according to local residents.

One Raguet Street resident said Obama-Biden signs that were displayed in her front yard were pulled out of the ground and thrown down a few days after they were put up earlier this month, and, most recently, a large Obama-Biden sign that was put up following Hurricane Ike was taken and has yet to return.

She said she's noticed signs missing from the residence caddy corner to her, too.

Dr. David Archie, who lives on Colonial Drive, was more than upset about the theft of his two Obama-Biden signs, and his anger goes deeper than party politics to what he described as "the bigger issue — basic freedoms."

Archie, who is a veteran of the U.S. Navy and served in the Middle East, said he believed he "earned" his right to the freedom of speech guaranteed in the First Amendment, and whoever stole his yard signs took that freedom away.

"I have no problem with others expressing their views," he said. "I respect their opinions. But I earned the right to express mine."
I have always been struck by how intensely the right wingnuts will rail against "oppression", from Slick Willie murder conspiracies to the UN's Black Helicopters... and now that their guys are in power and real oppression is happening, they're quiet as a mouse.

Meanwhile, my daughter in Kaufman (not quite as Deep East Texas) reports that everyone there assumes Obama will be assassinated before he's in office a year.

Even McCain gets booed by his own Nut Case Squad:

McCain urges supporters to treat Obama respectfully
By MICHAEL D. SHEAR
The Washington Post
Saturday, Oct. 11, 2008


LAKEVILLE, Minn. – At the end of perhaps the most charged and negative week of the presidential campaign, Sen. John McCain sought to tone down his rhetoric toward Sen. Barack Obama even as his running mate, allies and his own advertising continued to attack the character of the Democratic nominee.

Yesterday, McCain urged a crowd of skeptical supporters at a town hall forum in this Minneapolis suburb to be respectful of his rival for the presidency despite their deep policy differences with Obama.

The Republican nominee drew a cascade of boos from the crowd when he called Obama "a decent person" and told an expectant father that he does not have to be scared if he is President of the United States.

"We want to fight ,and I want to fight, but we will be respectful," McCain said, again prompting loud boos when he declared that he admires Obama's accomplishments. "I want everyone to be respectful, and let's be sure we are. ... That doesn't mean you have to reduce your ferocity. It's just got to be respectful."

At one point in the event, McCain grabbed back the microphone from an elderly woman who had begun to say that she didn't like Obama because he is an Arab. "No, ma'am. No, ma'am," McCain said. "He's a decent family man, a citizen who I just happen to have serious differences with on fundamental questions."

His comments came a day after an angry crowd at a Wisconsin rally shouted epithets about the Democratic nominee, pumped their fists angrily in the air and catcalled repeatedly when Obama's name was mentioned. Several called him a "socialist," and many flipped their middle finger as a press bus drove by.

McCain appeared determined to respond yesterday, saying that he respects Obama and quieting the boos only by saying that "if I didn't think I would be one heck of a better President, I wouldn't be running."

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Apparently Republicans are the only haters

Yep you guessed it folks. You will never see this on the news. However, anything that cast a bad light on a Republican candidate is fair game.

Liberals are so open minded.

You just proved you don't watch regular news. It was covered on CNN, ABC News, NBC [I saw those three], It is on MSNBC, Politico, FARK and nearly every news aggregate on the net.

Well then lets post the links! And of course nothing denouncing the hate mongering and abusive language displayed by your fellow political brethren.

At least the commercial motives of TV are not shrouded in bullshit. Television's grab for your cash is open and honest.
