All in good fun? Maybe, but for some reason, this is rubbing me the wrong way.

I don't like Palin at all, but I do think that this is taking it a little bit too far. I've seen some pretty funny halloween 'political' setups but hanging her by a noose...

all is fair? why would you condone any of it?

All of it is wrong - two wrongs don't make a right.

Who said I condone it.....all I said was, it was fair for them to express theirselves in that way....i'am half black....you think for one minute I think this is right? You have to be out of your mind!!

I don't think all is fair. It shouldn't be happening, period. I don't care if you like a candidate or not, this is the seed of hate dressed up as "art" for Halloween.

It's wrong no matter who it's focused on. Spinkie, your point is valid, yet women (and men) were also hung way back when if they were deemed to be a witch.

This election is leaving a really bad taste in my mouth, and most of it is from the supporters of either party, not the candidates themselves (although they do, too) . There are some real idiots out there.

That may be true about the witches...but there were no witches in my family....there were family members of mine who were slaves at one point in time so I relate to that hanging a little better than i'd like too....however....I think hanging ANYONE is WRONG!!

Yeah, I don't support them, but that's not cool. I wouldn't want one done of me, unless, I did it myself.

I can see why the people that did it thought it was justified, but it was still wayyyyy over the top.

It's wrong wrong wrong. If they did that with Obama -- the s*** would hit the fan. It has to go both ways. Must be former republicans. They'll learn manners. eventually.
