A shameful despicable act

by Janet Crain
A candidate up for election next Tues. has been hung in effigy. A mannequin, dressed as the famous politician it represents was hung by a noose on a public street. It is still on display along with another mannequin representing the running mate. A shameful despicable act. Surely there will be a hue and cry from the Democrats and the entire media about this terrible event.

Surely we will hear a denouncement from Senator Obama about this shameful treatment of Governor Sarah Palin.,0,7613791.story

Halloween Palin Prop Sparks Controversy In WeHo
WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) ― A Halloween decoration showing a mannequin dressed as vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin hanging by a noose from the roof of a West Hollywood home is drawing giggles from some passers-by and gasps of outrage from others. The mannequin is dressed in brunet wig, glasses and a red business suit. Another mannequin dressed as John McCain emerges from a flaming chimney.

Chad Michael Morisette, who lives in the house, told CBS 2 News that drivers and bus passengers have been stopping to snap pictures of the macabre scene. Morisette says the effigy would be out of bounds at any other time of year, but it's within the spirit of Halloween. He says "it should be seen as art, and as within the month of October. It's Halloween, it's time to be scary it's time to be spooky."
