What the hell is wrong with people?

From citizen-times.com:

– A dead bear was found dumped this morning on the Western Carolina University campus, draped with a pair of Obama campaign signs, university police said.

Maintenance workers reported about 7:45 a.m. finding a 75-pound bear cub dumped at the roundabout near the Catamount statute at the entrance to campus, said Tom Johnson, chief of university police.

“It looked like it had been shot in the head as best we can tell. A couple of Obama campaign signs had been stapled together and stuck over its head,” Johnson said.

University police called in N.C. Wildlife Resources officials to remove the body and help in the investigation. Bear season is currently under way in Western North Carolina.

“This is certainly unacceptable,” Johnson said. “Someone was wanting to draw attention to the election. If we find out who they are, we’ll make sure they’ll get some attention themselves.”

This McCain quiped "fringe" group, a group that yells out racial slurs and calls Obama a terrorist and evidently kills animals in some sort of political display, is disturbing to say the least. What frustrates me to the highest degree is that I can see McCain lying through his teeth when he says this group is small and doesn't represent his followers. This group is growing everyday and partly because the McCain/Palin campaign is fueling their fire. His nonfeasance in condoning these actions is evidentiary of his support for these actions.
