Correlation is Not Causation--But Shouting "Kill Him" is, in fact, a Threat

Edited to add this quote, in its glorious entirety, is from Mark "I see no black people" Hemingway at the NRO.

Obamaweek Strikes Again [Mark Hemingway]

From Newsweek's "special election project":

The Obama campaign was provided with reports from the Secret Service showing a sharp and disturbing increase in threats to Obama in September and early October, at the same time that many crowds at Palin rallies became more frenzied.

Funny, I always thought correlation is not causation. But clearly, Palin was stoking hatred. Thanks for keeping it classy, Newsweek. You never fail to dissapoint [spelling error in the original. Not that I'm pointing any fingers of blame since I'm not a master speller either.] with your partisanship and general sloppiness.
