The Daily Show With Jon Stewart: Stewart with image of Tennessee State Sen. Stacey Campfield
Oh, right. That guy.
Tennessee State Sen. Stacey Campfield, who we have heard from before due to his status as a thundering moron, blogs his "Thought of the day."
Democrats bragging about the number of mandatory sign ups for Obamacare is like Germans bragging about the number of manditory sign ups for "train rides" for Jews in the 40s.
Campfield says he will not be apologizing, though "it was never my intent to insult anyone."
“I think Jewish people should be the first to stand up against Obamacare,” Campfield said. “If government is controlling people's health insurance, they are potentially controlling people's lives....letting the government choose who lives and who dies.”
That's Republican State Sen. Stacey Campfield, America, a man who is pretty sure a plan to give Americans health insurance is like the Holocaust. And this, America, is why looking for the Republican Party to become less batshit insane in the near future is a fool's quest. That bench is too deep.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
