About that GOP health care plan

So much crazy going out in the world today but in the interest of waiting for the news to age enough to be accurate, this was my LOL of the day.
In response to the RNC's twelve hour online town hall to "explain the democratic health care bill," DNC Press Secretary Hari Sevugan issued the following statement:

"We're planning a twelve second town hall to explain every last detail of the GOP health care plan."
Meanwhile, it appears at least ten tea party protesters were arrested at Nancy Pelosi's office. Some for refusing to leave it and some outside who were throwing shredded copies of the health care bill around.

I'm also told that eight single payer protesters were arrested at Joe Lieberman's office this morning for refusing to leave. The difference of course is that the single payer protesters weren't vandalizing anything and they were there to agitate for something. The tea partiers were simply there to be against something and to make some noise.

Also a couple of more protest signs from the tea pot rally. This Holocaust imagery was notable. And Three Wise Men? Think that sums up the intellectual maturity of the tea tantrum crowd.

Hey, I like this Hari Sevugan person. I wonder if he or she has a newsletter to which I might subscribe.

(How are you doing, Libbity?)

LOL Larkspur. I'm okay. A bit crazed because I'm moving again but I think I'll be able to settle down in the new place and start to enjoy this little town at last.

Hope you're doing well also. Always glad to see you here.

You missed an important aspect of the who healthcare protest - while the tea baggers are getting all the publicity, the pro health protesters who are getting arrested across the country are getting virtually no exposure on MSM.
I've been keeping up with my FB link to the MAD As Hell Doctors and there is so much going on in support of single payer...
Think we would be justified claiming conspiracy?

Single payer advocates don't fit the media's pre-chosen narrative Rocky. They only like angry, ignorant nutcases.
