NEW VOICE COLUMN UP about the health care town brawls. The common elements of these spectacles and their defenses are familiar to regular readers of the rightblogs -- assertions of great power derived from the true will of the people, inevitably coupled with persecution mania, and of course references to Hitler and threats of civil war. I know it sounds tedious, but it's really something to see how they lug this same formula from topic to topic and from event to event like a carney wagon lugging a freakshow to the cowtowns.

I regret not having included Oliver Willis' report on the town hall held in Harold Ford's old district; Willis says this is "the only majority black district in Tennessee," yet the bellowing crowd of alleged constituents seems awfully majority-white.
