Chalk one up to the Republicans: A liberal leaning African American acquaintance was talked out of voting today because "they changed the rules and you need two forms of ID and a Minnesota Drivers License this year" etc. etc. Yes, folks, he was lied to, he gave up, and that's one point for the…
That is the message being clearly repeated by defeated Tea Party activists, and it is not all words. Some time over the last couple of days, Tea Party activist Harry Weisiger, of Nashville Tennessee apparently tried to kill an adult male and a ten year old girl because they were driving in a car…

I'll steal from FARK: last week they had a story about a ballplayer who took a hard ball to the groin; it was sports news because the guy doesn't wear a protective cup. The headline was:


That response should leave a mark on her: it won't, it will be turned into "evidence" that the democrats are trying to hid some evil plan.

Still it was fun to watch, and it should happen more often.

At the very least, it's a good history lesson for the teabagger. Comparing a public figure who is (a) Jewish, (b) gay, and (c) politically liberal to a Nazi is already a TRIPLE EPIC FAIL, with special bonus FAIL points if that person is Barney Frank. Well done, Barney!

I hope Frank's response will encourage other Democratic members of Congress to grow equally strong backbones. Hell, even Bob Inglis, a conservative Republican, told his constituents to turn off Glenn Beck. Maybe there's at least a faint glimmer of hope in sight.

i still don't understand why some people think trying to take care of everyones health is equivalent to genocide.

Obama as hitler?

i mean, WTF?


"Trying to argue with you is like trying to argue with the dining room table!" Priceless! I'll remember this for the next debate with a creationist!

I can only hope that more targets of such highly misinformed and deluded vitriol will take their cue from Rep. Frank and simply refuse to argue with someone who is so far removed from reality.

these dissenters really ought to sit back and think about what would happen if Obama really WAS like hitler.

in the middle of the night, the police would bust down their door and take them away for opposing the regime. maybe take their families too. then they would disappear.

freedom is nice.

Go get'm, Barney Frank!

Maybe I should move one congressional district over.

They don't. They react it.

Fuck yeah!

At this point these teabaggers should show up with a video loop of Glenn Beck to make their arguments. The debate would likely be at least as productive.

Applause to Representative Frank indeed -- but not for the insult, but for the bow to the First Amendment.

Congressmen Frank rocks so hard sometimes it is difficult to even put it on a scale. But it is close to "Disaster Area" of "Hitchhikers guide" fame.

LaRouche supporters are teabaggers?
Healthcare *is* confusing.
