McCain Tells Supporters to Dial Back the Hate, Gets Booed for It

clipped from

John McCain on Friday moved to calm rising anger among his supporters at rival Barack Obama, calling him a decent man and at one point taking the microphone away from a woman who'd called Obama an Arab.

Their anger apparently still at flash point, McCain's supporters then booed him for his conciliatory words about Obama.

Increasingly angry, supporters of McCain and running mate Sarah Palin have responded at rallies with loud cries of "terrorist" and "traitor."
But when one man said he was scared to raise his unborn child in a country that might be led by a President Obama, McCain disagreed.

Later, another supporter told McCain, "I don't trust Obama...He's an Arab."

McCain stood shaking his head as she spoke, then quickly took the microphone from her.

How disappointed they must be to find out they don't finally have an openly racist candidate. Good luck getting that geni back in the bottle, John. You may not have created this monster, but you gave it a place to live.

It's a little late to try to kick it out now.
