I get the difference between a direct personal attack on one specific person versus a symbolic racist display that conjurs up a despicable time in our history. They are different, but I don't think either is OK.

I think they just moved it from the trailer in Nicholasville to the campus of Wildcat Cuntry.

Obama Effigy Found

I am assuming the tree was wrestled to the ground and fully disarmed [or delimbed - pruned, whatever]. Limbaugh will surely blame the TREE for this outrageous and uncalled for action for "hosting" the effigy. I am sure that, at some point we will see pictures on Limbaugh's web site [and Fox] of Obama with other TREES, some lurking in the background, some even next to him and conclusions will be drawn that it was, indeed Obama who, with his tree hugging [you see where this came from now] friends orchestrated this to make McCain look bad.

Do we have a birth certificate available on that tree. I want to make sure it's not some Japanese Maple or Chinese Chestnut or Siberian Elm or Norway Spruce. Damned Norwegians.

While I agree with you that "things like this happen all the time...", when it occurs regarding ANYONE that is under Secret Service protection, that is SOP, at least according to my cuz the US Marshall and one of the feds who got paged. We can assume that, if the kids in California followed procedure, they did the same. We can also assume that the feds filed a report that included some version of "things like this happen all the time at campuses.".

But, you know that. You guys just want to cause a stir and distract people's attention with negative reactive emotions. Republican tactics are really getting stale.
it always amazes and disgusts me when when conservatives would try to make something like this the same as hanging a black man. even though i believe it wrong for them to do it to palin, it has no where near the racist or evil value. but many will try to make you believe its the same in order to minimize the effects of brutal racism.
