What is up with the McCain Campaign?

Okay-what happened this weekend?

I'm just appalled by the performance in FL yesterday by the Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott. Here's the blurb I pulled from CBS news blog From the Road-

After delivering brief remarks in support of Palin, Sheriff Scott flipped the switch and used Barack Obama’s middle name in order to incite the crowd of thousands of people who have already gathered here. “On Nov. 4, let’s leave Barack Hussein Obama wondering what happened,” the law enforcement officer said.

And then...

Many of the thousands of people in attendance roared their approval at Sheriff Scott’s dig at the Democratic nominee, whose Kenyan father shared the same exact name as his son. After Sheriff Scott left the podium, local radio host Mandy Connell took the stage next. She too drew a loud ovation when she said Obama “hangs around with terrorists.”

Video clip of Sheriff Scott's comments and then his non-apology explanation of his comments;

The campaign issued the following statement-

Palin campaign spokesperson Tracey Schmitt issued the following statement on Sherriff Scott’s remarks: “We do not condone this inappropriate rhetoric which distracts from the real questions of judgment, character, and experience that voters will base their decisions on this November.

Yeah right-did Palin step up to the microphone utter similar words? Nope.

Thinking caps, people.

Put them on pronto.
