Health Care Demonstrators in Boca Eerily Calm
Yesterday in Boca Raton, demonstrating for health care reform. Now there's a thought! Also, interesting strategy not to mob a town hall meeting and chant about how we should deprive immigrants of health care. Now compare that political participation with the style that health care opponents practiced this week in Tampa -- video after the jump.
You can attend a town hall meeting and boo and hiss to your heart's content. God bless the First Amendment. But it's not exactly the kind of civil discourse that makes your cause appealing to the rest of the nation's voters. Also, the New York Times reports that this whole "death panel" is bunk, but then that paper has a pronounced liberal media bias against right wing myths, so let's all wait till we hear it from Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh.
