When is the unhinged frenzy gripping crowds at McCain-Palin gatherings -- not to mention McCain-Palin's own role in stoking that frenzy -- going to become a big story?
Today in Wisconsin, a McCain supporter unleashed a long, unhinged rant in which he blasted the "socialists taking over our country" and referred to Obama and Nancy Pelosi as "hooligans." McCain didn't utter one syllable of objection. In fact, he nodded bemusedly at the "socialist" mention.
And at the end of the man's rant, McCain said that the man was "right."
After the man's rant, the crowd got worked up and chanted "U-S-A" a bunch of times. Then McCain replied: "Well, I -- I think I got the message. Could I just say, the gentleman is right."
