01:38 pm - An excellent response to vileness & idiocy
Here's an absolutely gorgeous vid of Massachusetts Representative Barney Frank responding to a particularly craze anti-healthcare protester. This is how I want to see more congressional democrats respond. Watching this made me happy.

Edit: here's an article about Frank's healthcare town hall meeting.

Yeah, I saw that in Salon.

It seems like the "take the high road and respond to hateful lies with dignified responses" approach (which I think of these days as "The Kerry Approach") is a loser every time, and almost always ends up sounding like "tacitly accepting crazy nonsense as being somehow reasonable."

Barney Frank stands up to the bullies and points out that they are talking crazy nonsense.

Hurrah Barney Frank!

I have to agree with Frank, what planet *does* chicky spend her time on. No-one in their right mind throws around the descriptor "Nazi" and expects to be taken seriously. I'm glad he didn't.
