Teabaggin' it old school

Hordes of Real Americans (TM) descended on Washington this weekend as the Teabaggers held their "Sept. 12" march and rally. You know, the kind of event where people are so patriotic they fly Confederate flags and call for the president to be sent to Kenya. It's all part of the continuing outbreak of Aggrieved White Man Syndrome, which is what happens when a privileged group begins to lose the prestige to which it feels entitled.

We need a fighter

Sept. 7, 2009

Again, Bill Moyers rides to our rescue.

Let's get on with it, Mr. President. We're up the proverbial creek with spaghetti as our paddle. This health care thing could have been the crossing of the Delaware, the turning point in the next American Revolution — the moment we put the mercenaries to rout, as General Washington did the Hessians at Trenton. We could have stamped our victory "Made in the USA." We could have said to the world, "Look what we did!" And we could have turned to each other and said, "thank you."

As it is, we're about to get health care reform that measures human beings only in corporate terms of a cost-benefit analysis. I mean this is topsy-turvy — we should be treating health as a condition, not a commodity.

Watch the video.

Lots about this on the next show.
