Quick Hitters on Health Care

What is up with far left Democrats? Diane Watson (D-ranged), in arguing for Obamacare heaps lavish praise on .... Fidel Castro? I was thinking, you're kidding, right? But here it is courtesy of HotAir:

Meanwhile, there are various reports of violence and arrest threats over health care protests. In general, we see the anti-Obama side behaving and the other side provoking.

At a Tucson Tea Party protest a provocateur shows some sharp elbows.

In New Hampshire, a man is arrested for questioning if union enforcers at a Carol-Shea Porter town hall are from the state.

Having a picture of Obama that is unflattering gets a protester threatened with arrest in Virginia. Apparently protest signs with only words are ok. The money quote: Protester: "This used to be America" Cop: "It ain't no more, ok."

And in another "Define Astroturfing" moment, the left has to bus in their supporters to the union hall to get a pro-Obamacare rally going.

But there is some good news. Liberals are saying they won't vote for a health care bill without the public option. Why is this good? Such "political chicken" might be just what it takes to slay this beast, and best of all the left will have done it for us.
