Default Republican attack strategy empowering the crazies?

I haven't read any of this officially. I heard it on a local opinion show on the radio on the way to work today, and I'm asking if anyone else has heard this.

The commentator said that at some of the Palin rallies, when Palin mentioned Obama the crowd was shouting things like "KILL THE TERRORIST!"; and that when she criticized the "media elite", that the crowd started yelling at the press and photographers, and that someone yelled, "GET DOWN, BOY!" to a black photographer who had stood up to take pictures.

The commentator said that this was partly the reason that McCain's camp is turning down the attack strategy; that there are some among his supporters who are perhaps not rational.

On the one hand, it seems incredulous; on the other, you never know where the crazies might gravitate, and what they might do.

EDITED TO ADD: The only part of this that I know is TRUE is that I heard it on the radio. I have no idea whether the crowds were actually threatening to turn into mobs.

Probably not true because we all know the MSM would be making a huge deal of it!

I'm only saying that I heard this on the radio. OUR crazies burn SUVs and chain themselves to trees and attack at the G9 Summit, at least lately.

I deplore extremism of any kind. I've seen how mobs can get. I've seen idiot protesters at anti-war rallies. All mob violence does is undermines the cause which it is trying to promote; mob violence is all fury and no purpose. Mob violence is like setting off an ammunition dump; it was a great explosion, but it killed everyone.

"They"... I hope you don't mean conservatives. These people, if the story is true, are not conservatives. They are nut jobs at conservative rallies. They are the kind of people who might fantasize Palin as their Aryan bride. They are Travis Bickles.

Was that a defense? How do you feel about those on the right that buy the BS I identified? I'll tell you how I feel about lefty stuff you identify.

From Monday's Washington Post... sounds like someone is going to get a visit from the Secret Service.

Quote:
It was time to revive the allegation, made over the weekend, that Obama "pals around" with terrorists, in this case Bill Ayers, late of the Weather Underground. Many independent observers say Palin's allegations are a stretch; Obama served on a Chicago charitable board with Ayers, now an education professor, and has condemned his past activities.

"Now it turns out, one of his earliest supporters is a man named Bill Ayers," Palin said.

"Boooo!" said the crowd.

"And, according to the New York Times, he was a domestic terrorist and part of a group that, quote, 'launched a campaign of bombings that would target the Pentagon and our U.S. Capitol,'" she continued.

"Boooo!" the crowd repeated.

"Kill him!" proposed one man in the audience.

And,

Quote:
Worse, Palin's routine attacks on the media have begun to spill into ugliness. In Clearwater, arriving reporters were greeted with shouts and taunts by the crowd of about 3,000. Palin then went on to blame Katie Couric's questions for her "less-than-successful interview with kinda mainstream media." At that, Palin supporters turned on reporters in the press area, waving thunder sticks and shouting abuse. Others hurled obscenities at a camera crew. One Palin supporter shouted a racial epithet at an African American sound man for a network and told him, "Sit down, boy."
