I see that Obama has tossed people off his plane because their papers endorsed McCain. I could hardly believe there was any media out there that wasn't in the bag for Obama.

DES MOINES - Today it was learned that three reporters covering the Obama campaign will no longer be permitted to fly on Obama's chartered 757 beginning Sunday, just two days before Election Day.

The reporters represent three papers whose editorial pages each endorsed McCain for president: The Dallas Morning News, The New York Post, and The Washington Times. Ebony and Essence - Obama-friendly publications - will take their seats on the plane.

McCain is tossing his own supporters from rallies.

"I saw a couple that had been escorted out and they were confused as well, and the girl was crying, so I said 'Why are you crying? and she said 'I already voted for McCain, I'm a Republican, and they said we had to leave because we didn't look right,'" Elborno said. "They were handpicking these people and they had nothing to go off of, besides the way the people looked."

this statement in the McCain rally article pretty well clears up why

Elborno said while she has protested at events before, no plans were discussed beforehand for a protest and she shouldn't have been taken out because she was not causing a disturbance.
I think when its a private thing like this McCain rally was then they should be able to tell anyone that they want to leave. Whats with hecklers anyway what a bunch of rude fools. And I would feel the same way about it if they were heckling Obama. I hate censorship in any form and thats what hecking and disrupting someone trying to get their message out is plain and simple.

....said while she has protested at events before....
Analogy:
Scream'n Howie Dean is will be campaigning at a polling place in GF this weekend. So if I'm escorted out before it starts it won't be because of being seen on a prior day with my "o'Biden sucks c**k" t-shirt? Even though I'm not wearing it to the campaign speech and I'm not planning to protest they shouldn't be aware?

(Controversial t-shirts seem to be the "in thing" this year.)
