A while ago I lauded Senator Obama for criticizing his own staff's inappropriate comments. When his press people went over the top in attacking Sarah Palin, Obama took them to the wood shed.
Yesterday, Senator McCain did the same with his own supporters, who were accurately maligning Senator Obama:
At one point, Senator McCain even took a microphone away from a woman who insisted Senator Obama was an "Arab." (see photo)
Fearing the raw and at times angry emotions of his supporters may damage his campaign, John McCain on Friday urged them to tone down their increasingly personal denunciations of Barack Obama, including one woman who said she had heard that the Democrat was "an Arab."Each time he tried to cool the crowd, he was rewarded with a round of boos.
Senators McCain and Obama are trying to keep this election civil. I hope their supporters can do the same.
