This is why my ex-husband will date conservatives and I will not, even if it means that I end up a lonely spinster. Because he “[doesn’t] care about politics,” and I could not possibly share a bed, a life, or offspring with someone who votes for insane people who could not be wronger, and who insult my intelligence on a daily basis. I know politics is a dirty business, but there’s something wrong with publicly, deliberately fucking over a whole class just because you’re one of the “haves” who’s happy with your health insurance.
Someone in the comment thread on this over on Gawker identified Ms. Hitler as a LaRouchian. Figures. As for Barney, if every one of the Democrats would open their mouths and eviscerate these bile-spewing reactionaries like he does, we might just win this war.
I do believe that woman has done been told. I truly believe that Barney Frank needs to do a quick seminar for Senators/Congresspersons on how to lay a smackdown when dealing with crazy or unpleasant folk. Just teach a few handy-dandy phrases to employ in such situations.
Dear Dems, you want people to go, “AH SNAP” when you deal with these people.
