Ok, I see on Fox News (oh aren't I just eeeeevil for actually watching the political coverage on ALL the cable and network stations) tonight that there is a Halloween display in California that includes an effigy of Sarah Palin being hanged by a noose. Apparently, this display has been up for three weeks, and this is the first I'm hearing about it. Law enforcement officials have said there is no legal recourse, and they have no legal reason to ask the homeowners to take it down. It's not a hate crime, they've decided. The media - at least the national media - haven't mentioned it until now. Hmmm....... Do you suppose that would have been the reaction if it had been an image of Obama?
