Palin Effigy Hangs From Noose
More love, tolerance and that spirit of "talking with their enemies" from The Obama Cultists.

An effigy of U.S. Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin hanging by a noose as part of a Halloween display drew complaints on Monday, but local officials said the homeowner was covered by free speech rights.
A mannequin dressed to resemble the Alaska governor, with her trademark beehive hairdo and glasses, was hung by the neck from the eaves of the home in famously liberal West Hollywood.
On the roof, a mannequin of Republican presidential candidate John McCain, protruded from the chimney surrounded in flames, holding his head as he was apparently burned alive.
"We have been getting some phone calls this morning complaining about it but if (the homeowner) isn't in violation of municipal code we have no reason to cite them," West Hollywood spokeswoman Helen Goss said.
"People have First Amendment rights (to free speech)," Goss said. "I would speculate that if it's part of a Halloween display then its political satire."
Homeowner Chad Michael Morisette told local KCAL-TV the display should be considered Halloween "art" and said his neighbors would probably be more offended by a similar scene invoking Democrat Barack Obama.
"I know if we had done Barack Obama, people would have probably thrown things through our windows," Morisette said. "The image of a hanged black man is a lot more intense than the image of a hanged white woman for our country, the history of our country."
Earlier a cardboard likeness of Obama was strung up from a tree at an Oregon university and an Ohio man who told local media he didn't want to see an African-American running the country hung a ghostly figure bearing an Obama sign from a tree in his yard.
I guess if it's art I should get busy Photoshopping Obama on fire, in a noose, hanging from a tree surrounded by a bunch of white-hooded Klan members for a Halloween edition for this blog. Hey...it's, art!
Recall how The Obama Cultists went batshit crazy when a Halloween display depicted the Shadow of Death "stalking" Barack Hussein Obama, Junior?
I wonder if Chad has been visited yet by the Secret Service? Maybe they can rendition him to a nice rat-infested prison cell located somewhere in Eastern Europe.
I know the Little Pinhead Liberals who read this blog will scream like idiots saying, "what about the threats to 'kill Obama' at the Palin rallies?" Sorry Libs, the 'kill him' allegations have been investigated and found to be false, baseless and nonexistent.
So much for the Tolerant Leftists.
I encourage The Insane Liberal Clown Posse and the Obama Cultists to continue these types of stunts. Then, on election day, scratch your
(Thank you, Bug!)
