Senior writer Doug Wilson's story in today's Quincy Herald-Whig about Illinois Republican U.S. Senate candidate Alan Keyes' weekend appearances in and around Quincy contains this eye-opening passage:Utterly despicable. Let's hope that the call to the Keyes campaign by the Trib folks results in a rapid apology.Keyes later led the crowd in a series of chants where they answered his questions with the refrain "Obama been lyin'."Hmmm. Obama been lyin'. Obama been lyin'. What does that sound like to you? I called Wilson, who listened to this chanting first hand: "Are they going for an Obama been lyin' / Osama bin Laden thing?" I asked. "I'm certain that's what they're doing," he said. "They're trying to equate (Obama) to a really, really bad man."

Now for even worse name-calling...
I've never been one who was good at word play, so I'm glad Eric Zorn figured out this nefarious chant by Keyes and his crowd.
