Morning, chillens! There’s no better way to start a Monday than with a stiff shot of schadenfreude, so let’s suit up and see what’s inside the airlock door, shall we?
First up, it’s the “It Couldn’t-a possibly been one of us!” shuffle:
Racial slurs spray-painted across Obama billboard in Pittsfield Township (Ann Arbor or Ypsilanti)

Racist slurs were spray-painted across a large Barack Obama presidential campaign billboard alongside a heavily trafficked stretch of US-23 in Pittsfield Township sometime overnight Tuesday.
And the U.S. Secret Service is investigating what now appears to be two threatening letters against Obama that were received in Livingston County, according to news reports.
Michigan State Police were on the scene of the billboard Wednesday morning, and have called in for tracking dogs, police said.
Black spray paint was used to draw three swastikas, symbols of Klan hoods and to write “KKK,” “Rebel” and two racial slurs.
The billboard, roughly 10 feet tall by 50 feet wide, is located where Textile Road deadends near US-23, east of Carpenter Road.
This looks like an excellent chance to disavow the KKK wing of the Republican Party, right? I mean, you could take a stand here and say thatovert displays of racism aren’t cool. Right?
To: Darren McCartyWouldn’t’t be surprised if 0bama’s campaign did it.
To: Darren McCartyI’m not so sure its not leftists who are doing this.
To: ParadoxI’m not so sure its not leftists who are doing this. Yep. It’s totally their style. Probably one of those anarchist protestor types that were rioting in Minneapolis.6 posted onWednesday, September 17, 2008 2:37:20 PM
To: Darren McCartyYes I agree it helps the left. But I would suggest also, it was a leftie who did it! This has been part of the game plan of the left, and their activists organizations from all interest groups, for YEARS! Every single one of them uses this kind of tactic.
Why, he’s right! Every single one of those lefties draws racial slurs on pictures of black guys. It’s part of the official playbook!
And following that line of illogic to its illogical conclusion:
To: Darren McCartyYeah, right.Your certain some blacks didn’t do it?
Not that they have ever done that in the past. /S
Glad you turned that “stupidity” tag off, G.Mason, now go find Occam’s Razor and perform a little self-sterilization surgery before you have the misfortune to reproduce.
The entire rest of the thread is full of “agent provocateurs” and “Lefty ‘Community Organizers’ did this”, so we’ll just take the pinheadedness as read, shall we?
Next up – “from the same people who brought you Obama is a Muslim’ “:

Let the rending of raiments commence!
If the polling represents a scientific and random random sampling and the undecideds aren’t shrinking, are we to believe these “shifts” are a bunch of morons who just keep changing their minds? And…
The daily polls are yesterday’s news. With all the wild fluctuations and wilder soundbites (patriotic to pay more tax), these polls are worthless.
To: impeachedrapistNone of either from me. This race is close close close. But I do think Palin gave McCain his bounce and now the relentless attacks on her have taken it away.If anyone leaves FR or Fox News for just one minue, every other corner of media has nothing but slams on her in every which way – personal and political. If you didn’t know better you’d think McCain picked Satan himself (herself?) for VP. And many people do not know better.
Gallup Daily: Obama 49% (+1) McCain 44%

In hard times, tent cities rise across the country (women and minorities hardest hit)

RENO, Nev. – A few tents cropped up hard by the railroad tracks, pitched by men left with nowhere to go once the emergency winter shelter closed for the summer.
Then others appeared — people who had lost their jobs to the ailing economy, or newcomers who had moved to Reno for work and discovered no one was hiring.
Within weeks, more than 150 people were living in tents big and small, barely a foot apart in a patch of dirt slated to be a parking lot for a campus of shelters Reno is building for its homeless population. Like many other cities, Reno has found itself with a “tent city” — an encampment of people who had nowhere else to go.
