In small Florida newspapers, including the Sarasota Herald Tribune, anti-Obama hate ads have started sprouting including one that lists a series of blatant lies like Barack Hussein Obama will "force doctors to assist homosexuals in buying surrogate babies" and "for Christian organizations to pay for abortions". The emphasis on "Hussein" is reinforced in another anonymous superPAC ad, "Support the civilized man... defeat Jihad."
Forget about the Crusades. Why not just skip to the Roman colosseums where the loss of empire was masked by blood lust aimed at victims thrown into the ring with lions, tigers, or gladiators armed with iron axes and spear tipped poles? Karl Rove's idea -- he's called 'blossom turd' by George W. Bush -- is the moral equivalent of throwing Democrats, homosexuals, and Muslims in a mobile home, pulling out the lawn chairs and letting GOP voters watch while it is set on fire by monied interests independent of the Mitt Romney campaign.
Another reason for Republicans to withhold their vote in November: stay home. Don't vote. Send a message it is time to take back the Grand Old Party, the party of Abraham Lincoln, from extremists.
