Democratic Values in West Hollywood

Here's Sarah Palin hanging in effigy in West Hollywood:

Palin West Hollywood

As Captain Ed notes:

Let’s say someone created an effigy of a certain national political candidate and placed a noose around its neck, and then put the effigy on display for the neighbors to see this Halloween. What kind of reaction would you expect to see? People would start screaming about the Jena 6 and the latent racism of the American voter, and would assume that the neighborhood was located in a red state where people bitterly cling to their guns and religion.

Oh yeah, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and all the other "blood of martyrs" activists would be all over the airwaves decrying Republican Jim Crow.

Democrats (and
West Hollywood gays), of course, get a pass: It's all "good, clean fun."

Democratic values on display.
