Jon Stewart makes sense of it all

On last night’s episode of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart summed up the idiocy of the health-care protesters who are invoking Nazi Germany to try to criticize the proposals:

Only in America can a mixed-race president and a gay Jew be compared to Nazis.

It’s shocking how ignorant of history these people are. Rep. Barney Frank was exactly right to ask the woman who spewed this nonsense at his town hall meeting what planet she was from.

Add the hypocrisy of people who rely on government-run health care (VA, Medicare) criticizing government-run health care as dangerous and un-American, and the outright lies (death panels, promulgated by Sarah Palin and the Wall Street Journal among many, many others) and conservatives really ought to hang their heads in shame.

But long, sad experience tells us hell will freeze over first.
