Tea-baggers show their true colors







Images via Think Progress, Matthew Yglesias, and Andrew Sullivan. So you get a crowd filled with birthers, deathers, and racists. I don't know how much of that actually filters to the usual news outlets, but somewhere in the morass is very little that would strike me as serious and informed concern over health care (once you start making Nazi references to characterize a very mild reform of an obviously dysfunctional health care system, you're pretty much going to lose the interest of sane persons; encouragement of end of life planning is nowhere near mandating euthanasia). As usual, I see a bunch of folks who really should study in depth snopes.com and factcheck.org before hauling off and making the health "care" status quo look even less palatable then it was already.
