Ugliness Watch: "because It Rhymes" Edition


NYT: GOP Crowds chant "John McCain! Not Hussein!":

Ms. Palin was midway through her stump speech when a group of
supporters began shouting it in unison, drowned out a few seconds later
as Ms. Palin talked over them.

A similar chant, “Vote McCain, not Hussein,” was heard at a
campaign event for Ms. Palin in Williamsport, Pa., earlier this week....

After the rally in Florida ended, two of the people leading the chant explained why they did so.

“Because it rhymes,” said Shirley Mitten, 64, a volunteer at a pregnancy center and a resident of Brooksville, Fla.
