Desperation and the Angry Mob: Tell McCain to Renounce the Lies and Threats Made by his Followers

Unfortunately, when the powerful become desperate, their followers can become dangerous.
Palin and McCain can't win on the issues; so they have been focusing their speeches and rallies on personal attacks fueled by anger and hate.
Frighteningly, as their attacks against Obama become increasingly vicious, so does the reaction of the crowds they are addressing.
You can hear shouts of "Terrorist!" and "Treason!" coming from supporters at several McCain/Palin rallies, and the Secret Service is now investigating an incident in which someone shouted "Kill him!" at a rally in Florida.
This kind of fear-mongering and hateful speech is unacceptable, yet John McCain is standing by and saying nothing.
Tell John McCain to renounce these statements, tone down his rhetoric, and stop inciting hatred. Progressive Future has a tool on its website that makes it easy to send him this message - you can find it here.
