Conversations With A Table

I was going to post about something else entirely, but I saw this clip (h/t) and was reminded, once again, that a) the people protesting against health care reform are clueless sheep who do whatever Faux Noise and Hate Talk Radio tell them to do -- sans any relation to reality -- and, b) I wish Barney Frank was my Congressman.

From the YouTube page:
At a Barney Frank town hall meeting in Dartmouth, MA, a constituent asks, "Why are you supporting this Nazi policy?"

Frank responds: "On what planet do you spend most of your time?" He then calls her approach "vile, contemptible nonsense." He closes by saying: "Trying to have a conversation with you would be like arguing with a dining room table."

I wish more Democrats would have his backbone and loyalty to the people. We should have voted for Howard Dean. These people remind me daily why I fear Rebooblicons.

Happy Wednesday!

How ironic - an openly gay Rep having more balls than his hetero colleagues. So fall the stereotypes. He has the cojones to say the word "lies" instead of "misinformation" or "untruths."

I'm happy to have him here in Massachusetts.

And while we're on the subject of heroes, keep Ted Kennedy in your thoughts. We're about to lose one of the staunches voices for the common man that we've had in generations.
