Now, I live in the UK so I do not give a rats nuts who wins the US election. Both candidates have their pluses and minuses, like in all elections.
What strikes me is the sheer level and intensity of the hatred of the questions on YA directed at Obama in particular, comparing him to Hitler, Osama Bin Laden, a mass murderer of children and so on and so forth.
I mean, this guy is a US Senator.
It is impossible to imagine this level of abuse being directed at any candidate in a UK election.
What does the sheer volume of vitriol tell us about the US electorate - or at least a sizable percentage of it?
Have they lost the ability to debate and disagree on points of substance, without accusing the other guy of being a closet terrorist and mass-murderer?
