Here is a collection of the whining, self-delusion, hypocrisy, accusations of Democratic corruption for daring to assemble 60 votes to pass legislation, smears, lies, and all of the other standard Republican ploys which I found today, on my usual right wing websites, in response to the apparent imminent passage of some sort of health care bill. The list is so long (for one day!) that I am just going to reprint it without my usual sarcastic comments. I don't even expect you to read your way through the whole list. I just want you to see the magnitude of filth that we are fighting against.

BS (how appropriate,) Red State: "A quick search of the Interwebs for the term “political suicide” will return a significant number of stories on the pending Democrat-pushed healthcare “reform” legislation and their seemingly inexplicable political death spiral."
Erick Erickson, Red State: "If you oppose health care deform, you are a racist, hate-spouting, Aryan who roots for the assassination of Barack Obama"
Confederate Yankee: "All I Want Is A Byrd Dropping For Christmas...It isn't too much to ask for Byrd to step off for that great klavern in the sky before the Senate vote that may force this nation to accept government-rationed health care. Even a nice coma would do."
Matt Patterson, Pajamas Media: "The Socialist Revolution Has Come to America"
Ron Radosh, Pajamas Media: "The way (halth care reform) is being rammed through Congress is not how the world’s greatest democracy should get its business accomplished."

One day's output on one issue. Pretty amazing, huh?
