RCimT: Teabagging the health care debate

Some goings-on in the US health care debate and political beanbag tournament surrounding it.

A Fox News producer was caught directing 9-12 crowds, but it’s a grassroots effort, honest. Never mind that it was conceived by Glenn Beck, paid for by Rupert Murdoch and directed by Fox News producers, it’s TOTALLY legit.

Speaking of Beck, while advertisers are leaving him in droves, he has at least one friend in the media, who makes the straight-faced claim that the 60 advertisers he’s lost pales in comparison with the millions of companies that exist. Never mind that 60 is the vast majority of his advertisers to begin with. Said author also finds himself in a hole, and as the link above shows, doesn’t know to stop digging. Hilarity!

The e-mail forward A Day in the Life of Joe Sixpack has gotten around the intertubes quite a few times already. Sure, it’s no “Obamma is a secrit mooslem”, but you could always improve it by adding “Commie Medicine” to the list. Ten years from now perhaps teabaggers will scream “keep government’s hands off my Medicare Public Option!

Anderson Cooper invites on a racist teabagger for the second time, and is quite civil with him despite him being demonstrably racist on both occasions.

Life expectancy vs health care costs per capita – not surprisingly, USA comes up both lowest life expectancy, and highest health care cost.

Joe “I Lie!!” Wilson voted yes on a bill that included a provision for illegal immigrants to gain access to health care. Never mind that his current whipping post explicitly denies illegal immigrants in plain English, this makes him not only a douchebag but also a hypocrite.

Dennis Kucinich managed to make the big insurance execs admit that withholding care for cancer patients could result in irreparable harm or death. Video:

And finally, check out documentary evidence (hey, if Creationists think The Flintstones is a documentary, so’s this) that Obama is Hitler reincarnated ZOMG!!

You already know this is all ridiculous. Get out there and do something about it! If the retards can get airtime, surely you reasonable folks can get some airtime as well!
