Lesson In Don't Treat The Gander Like The Goose

We saw this coming.

2 accused of hanging Obama effigy on Ky. campus

In part:
. . .the two men told detectives they decided to hang the effigy after seeing media reports about a Sarah Palin effigy in California.

Witnesses who saw the effigy Wednesday said it was life-sized with an Obama Halloween mask, a suit jacket and sweat pants. It was found hanging from a tree with a noose around its neck.

UK President Lee Todd said the effigy violates the university's code of ethics, and Fischer faces punishment that could include expulsion.

"As outrageous and offensive an act as the effigy was, I truly believe it has mobilized our campus, the community and the state in an effort to battle racism," Todd said Thursday.
Yessir, and I also predict that opposition to any of (soon to be) President Obama's policies will be greeted with the accusation, "Well, you just don't like it 'cause you're a racist!"

But when the effigy of Governor Palin was strung up, local law enforcement did nothing. The said that's not a "hate crime".
