"Billionaires for Wealthcare"

My favorite counter-protesters who show up at all the right wing rallies. They were there at the clam bake in DC this weekend.

"No Socialized Medicine! Abolish Medicare!"

"Let's Save the Status Quo!"

Terrific! These videos made my day.

What strikes me about the folks on the other side is their dourness. Hardly a smile in evidence.

"Hardly a smile in evidence."

Yes, I saw that too, Grandmère Mimi. I don't even think these folks understood the satire. Way beyond them.

Maddow featured this show on hers, too.

I'm reminded of something the late, great Molly Ivins wrote once: "Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was."

Jay, I posted the video from Rachel's show when I saw it at the Billionaires for Wealthcare website and gave my friend Counterlight a link.

     Oh, too funny. In my experience, if three's anything that the right wing hates it is being laughed at.

     three's = there's

     I really need an editor.
