"The Blood Of Jesus Against Obama" (Or: Sarah Tweeting Under the Radar)

I’m sure some people see social networking as the ability to be that much more graphic and hateful than they would otherwise be in a more visible, responsible and/or accountable setting. This image is a prime example, coming from an Anne Coulter tweet of “her new church” favorited by the SarahPalinUSA tweet account today.

This being November 4th, the second anniversary of Obama’s election, the sign is also timely in evoking Tuesday’s Red Tide election victory of Obama’s “humble” opposition.

I like the Twitter notice at the bottom of the tweet, by the way:

This Tweet is from someone you’re not following. The media they’re mentioning could be anything, even something you might find offensive.
