establishes that the "kill him" remark yelled by a Palin rally attendee was made in reference to Ayers, not Obama
Freeper "2ndDivisionVet" throws out this bit of snark:
Since the subject was Ayers, then the "Kill him", if it existed, would most likely be about him. And Ayers would not be on very good philosphical ground for opposing it.
This death fantasy, by contrast, is clearly intended for a public officeholder.
It's pretty normal for people to call for the death penalty for people who commit murder and/or attempted murder. But it's bad PR (for Republicans) to shout it out at a campaign rally. And it's not civil, especially since due process can't touch the thug in question. (At least as far as the criminal courts are concerned - maybe Ayers and his fellow thugs could be sued.)
