And what prompted this particular specimen of disingenuous outrage? Well, this:
"Vice President Joe Biden sparked a campaign commotion Tuesday, telling an audience in southern Virginia that included hundreds of black voters that Republican Mitt Romney wanted to put them "back in chains" by deregulating Wall Street."
This is from a candidate whose party has spent the last three years accusing Obama of being a Communist, a Muslim terrorist, Satan, the Antichrist, a gay man who murdered his lover, a sleeper agent programmed to destroy the United States, a foreign born traitor, and endless other lying smears. This is from a candidate whose entire campaign has consisted of lies about Obama, extending to fraudulently edited film clips on several occasions that made Obama seem to say the exact opposite of what he really said.
This is shaping up to be a real orgy of ugliness. God help us if it works.
