Crazy All These Years

To folks like Sara Robinson who are sounding the alarm about the fear of right-wing fascism, I point you to this little walk down Memory Lane courtesy of Ed Brayton. Yeah, the birthers and the idiots shouting about how Obama's gonna kill Granny are nuts and kinda scary, but this crap's been downright commonplace for centuries.

Oh, and let's not dismiss legitimate concerns over the health care plan's cost and effectiveness just because some schmucks want to yell really loud and make fools of themselves? Kthxbai.

Agreed. At the same time, let's not forget the costs of things continuing the way they are. Not doing anything is a choice, too.

(Seriously, though. How do the people repeating the "death panel" talking points, like Sarah Palin, sleep at night? Such a blatant lie.)
