Kill Him?

Last night at the debate, Obama talked about an incident at a McCain/Palin campaign rally in which he claims someone yelled "Kill Him" when his name was mentioned. Well, as it turns out, it might not have happened.
The agent in charge of the Secret Service field office in Scranton said allegations that someone yelled “kill him” when presidential hopeful Barack Obama’s name was mentioned during Tuesday’s Sarah Palin rally are unfounded....

Agent Bill Slavoski said he was in the audience, along with an undisclosed number of additional secret service agents and other law enforcement officers and not one heard the comment.
But we have seen the "Sarah Palin Is A C*NT" shirt. So, yes, there is hate speech out there.
