Reaping the Whirlwind

Steny Hoyer, the House Majority Leader, is asking Republicans to stand up and condemn threats being made against Democrats who voted for the Health Bill.  Roger Simon has a nice letter in response, read the whole letter at the link, but below is a little bit of it:

You have reaped a whirlwind by subverting a democracy. Now you must deal with it. The Democratic Party is no longer "progressive" or "liberal." It is reactionary. And you and your cohorts have forever defined yourselves as reactionary politicians.

Violence is to be condemned, but so is the desecration of a great democracy.

Exactly.  I could hardly believe it this weekend when the Sunday shows twisted around 180 degrees and said the passage of this bill over the will of the public would be a winner in November.   The people in Washington D.C. are insane, on both the Right and the Left and they need to be voted out of office ASAP.
