The Great Hussein Pumpkin

BBC reported on Republican campaign techniques sickening the American voter:

Across America, ghosts, ghouls and snaggle-toothed jack o'lanterns peer out from a million suburban stoops; it is just two weeks until Halloween. But this fall. a genuinely frightening spectre is said to be lurking in the bushes, ready to pounce on the good people of Middle America.

He is tall and slim but his past is dark. He 'pals' with a terrorist intent on blowing up American values. He was raised in a strange land amongst Muslims. His religious mentor in more recent times is a preacher of hate.

His name alone is enough to strike fear into many a God-fearing soul. Whisper it quietly: Barack Hussein Obama is coming to get you.

Over the top? You bet, but then that is the tone adopted by some of the die-hards in the Republican campaign for the White House.

Early this month they looked at the polls showing a significant and growing Obama lead. They saw the economy in a tailspin and they felt the anger of a nation disgusted by Wall Street greed. And they reached a conclusion: it was time to go negative.
Wuuuuuugghhhhh! Aaaaaaallllggghhh! Does anyone have a Pepto Bismol?
