The faces of hate

Posted By on Wed, Nov 25, 2009 at 8:41 PM

The pharmacy lobby ads that have overrun the airways hating on Rep. Vic Snyder and Sen. Blanche Lincoln have, I admit, made me consider buying a can of whupass to spray on the grating whine of those cranky old coots saying they won't forget our congresspeople's votes for better health care for our fellow Americans. A Blog reader of long association offers the following telling commentary on the 60 Plus (pill pusher lobby) ads:

The Jim Elliott in the TV ads against President O's health plan is a retired State Police captain.  What does he know about how poor elderly folks are suffering?  IF...that's IF...he kept his State Police med plan when he retired, he has one of the best health plans in Arkansas!  So, what's his beef?

Jim, you out there? Got affordable health coverage courtesy of a gubmint-provided insurance plan? You're welcome, very much. For those who missed it, here's the background on the steaming sacks o' you-know-what who are bringing you this propaganda.
