Sarah Palin's congressional political counterpart, Minnesota's Michele Bachmann, led a Republican patriot-tea-bagger protest against health care outside the US Capitol, and our own Congressman Don Young attended the rally.
Given Don Young's penchant for embracing right wing craziness one can only assume he tacitly approved of the rhetoric of thousands of people screaming "Kill" and carrying signs that read "Waterboard Congress" and Holocaust images from the Dachau crematoria comparing health care legislation with Nazi Germany.
In fact, an official press release from his office makes a statement equating the health care bill to "bobbing for apples in an outhouse."
Sometimes this stuff just writes itself.
Or, as succinctly phrased over on Mudflats; it's "Time for Republicans to Start Eating Their Young."
"Environmentalists are a socialist group of individuals that are the tool of the Democrat Party. I'm proud to say that they are my enemy. They are not Americans, never have been Americans, never will be Americans." - Congressman Don Young, AK
"We wonder why we have got the Freemen or the militants. We wonder why we have got unrest in this country. It is because our government, in fact, has got out of hand and out of line, with the Endangered Species Act." - Congressman Don Young, AK
