McCain's brownshirt problem 

McCain: I admire Senator Obama and his accomplishments, and I respect him...
Audience: "Boo! Boo! Boo!"

McCain: [Obama] is a person you don't have to be scared of as President ...
Audience: "Boo! Boo! Boo!"

My Obama bumper-sticker was rudely removed and torn up in Wisconsin a few months ago. Since, far more serious attacks by vandals have occurred in California, Michigan, Utah, Ohio, Oregon, Texas, Ohio, Florida, Tennasee Indiana, and Minnesota.

Right-wing anger has been stoked by Republicans for years. And specifically and recently by the McCain campaign against Obama. The successful results have been showing up at McCain/Palin campaign rallies. God is on their side, so all this is of course justified.

Look for it getting worse, even and particularly after the election.
