Stupid is as Stupid Does - Forrest Gump

Sarah Palin, Chuck Grassley, Johnny Isakson and many other Republicans have in the past voted or approved of end of life counseling, now projected by them as "death panels." An obvious lie. Their ignorant followers and their mobs have injected themselves into the so-called debate on national health care parroting their diatribes, threatening the president's life, while wearing Confederate flag t-shirts, carrying guns to town hall meetings, and generally making complete idiots of themselves.

I saw a lady on the news last night, who said that she did not want the government coming between her doctor and herself. I suppose it is alright for her current insurance to come between the two of them as it does on a regular basis. Another said that all of the doctors would quit. Say what? They haven't quit because of the uncaring insurance companies. I've heard the mess about socialized medicine, which is also a lie. In socialized medicine, the doctors are employed by the government. For some stupid reason I have heard the president referred to as a NAZI and seen pictures of him with a Hitler mustache. What the NAZI Party has to do with a "debate" on health care besides the complete ignorance of those who injected it I do not know.

Death threats because of health care reform? I would like some of those, who endorse the mob behavior, to explain it all to me. The government would basically like to offer Medicare to those who would like to have it. That is what it is all about. If you would like to drop your current health insurance and join a form of Medicare you may do so. If you do not have health insurance, it is a great option This results in death threats, gun toting to meetings, stupid posters calling the President a NAZI and screaming mobs?

I do not know how to describe these ignorant, screaming, red faced morons. I think we all realize that many of them are racists and they will not disgrace themselves further by using the "N" word, so NAZI, Socialist, and other names replace it. But what of the others, who rant about doctors and socialized medicine? How is their behavior explained beyond the fact that they watch the Republican mouthpiece, FOX News? Well, "Stupid is as stupid does."
