I'm borrowing Digby's title. This story has been all over the place, and my only reaction is, "What did you expect?" Did anyone honestly think these people are concerned about health care? They are small, ugly, mean people who are frightened, and that fear has been groomed and nurtured by the Republican party -- which has now lost control. The first thing that comes to mind here is Frankenstein's monster, but the monster, at least, had some justification -- he really was mistreated.
Oh, and has anyone else noted how the corporate press is helping the Republican party distance itself from these loons? Of course, they're all in the same club.
