It is evident that hatred, much of it racist, for the President and Mrs. Obama is out there and people, even "genteel" southerners have lost their sense of propriety and feel free to cross the lines of civility.
Comments made by news/video feed readers and watchers reinforce this, and, although some "justify" the booing based solely on the President's disapproval record, their hatred and racism is still evident.
To add insult to injury, Rush Lamebrain defended the boo-ers, calling Michelle "uppity" among other things. I couldn't even get through the entire clip because the sound of his voice makes my skin crawl. I don't think even Dante could have conceived of a level of Hell low enough for him.
Sometimes I really get the sense that there are two species of humans on this earth, and we have been under the delusion that we are all one. Either that or, as eminent physicists have theorized, we are trapped in some nightmarish "parallel universe".
Either way, this sucks.
