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.”Still, it has to be better than having a bunch of large, foam #1 fingers pointed your way.

I’m Out of Touch
Yes, Palin and her crowd are vile, but I’m not sure I’ve even seen a thunder stick much less had one waved at me in anger.
