    Contrary to the 'popular consensus' around here that all teabaggers are racists, I still think many of them of troubled and frightened ordinary, who can be peeled away to the saner side.

    It's a pity that this job falls on the prez and OFA what with boneless wonders called dem pols living up to their name and meme (that dems can't govern).

    Between birthers, deathers and mouth-breathers, the gop has got 'teh crazy' and 'teh stoopid' covered.

      Yes, I call it 'Obamacare' because Obama cares.

      worked to explain the bill to people at a series of town halls. He brought others in, like AARP to talk about it too.

      And there were some vile, angry comments and posts about it/him, using all the tea bagging lines.  Not appreciation that he tried to get facts across and communicate but rather increased fury

      Now I'm sure it was very appreciated by those who just were not informed and uncertain... but those who were most hateful... don't think facts help them at all.

      There are teabaggers and then there are teabaggers. I'm not sure how many of the simply uninformed stay with the group too long
