It has become very clear that the mood this election year has transcended the frustrated voter into the angry voter, but many are outraged at what they see as an all new low from a North Carolina parking lot owner. The parking lot owner decided that any cars with Barack Obama stickers are no longer welcome to park in his lot.
Although in an interview the parking lot owner states he was just "trying to make light" of the election year, he also made it very clear that Obama supporters are not welcome, and he has no intention of taking down the sign until after the election in November.
This outrageous behavior is just the tip of the iceberg of what has lately become a very polarized election year. Many are attributing the increase in anger among voters by John McCain and his running mate Sarah Palin, who have openly been encouraging ideas that are divisive and come very close to crossing the line of bigoted insinuations.
Most recently, hostility toward reporters at Palin rallies has become so bad that racial epithets are common-place, and chants such as "terrorist" and "kill him" in reference to Barack Obama are not openly discouraged.
