At PJM: Assassinating Obama?

There have been quite a few articles written in the past week speculating that Democratic Presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama might be assassinated by a shadowy cabal of gun-toting racists (or Halliburton and Blackwater).

In my latest Pajamas Media article, I trace that rumor back to it's true source, and find that that paranoia stems from the media's own stilted views of the American people.

Actually, Bob, I think this whole concept has to do with the leftover 60's hippies seeing Robert Kennedy in Obama. Therefore, since Kennedy was assassinated, Obama will be too.

Projection does weird things to people sometimes.

My manager said to me last night that she thought if Obama was elected he'd be assassinated. And she's not exactly political. Whoever is spreading this propaganda it's getting out to the people.

How silly.
He's a Chicago Politician, with all the corruption that implies. Just check how his house was financed. It will be a lot cheaper and easier to buy Barry Boy than to buy an assassin.

Please, Bob, do not give our Philip Adams any more oxygen. He's a bloody antiquated embarrassment of an America-hating wanker and the kindest thing we could do, both for Mr Adams and Australia in general, is let him go gentle into that good night of the sheltered workshop which is our ABC.

Besides which, Malcolm X was assassinated by Black Muslims within the Nation of Islam, not by a "gun-toting [presumably white] racist." Not that Mr Adams ever lets the facts get in the way of a good Yank-bashing.

Slipping into Yoof Vernacular in a desperate grasp at relevance, Mr Adams asserts that Obama is "crazy brave." I assert that Mr Adams is "scary crazy."
