Just ending now: Rachel Maddow did a special edition of her show summarizing all the ways the right has attempted to subvert health care reform. Included are a number of segments on who is secretly behind the bogus "death panels" claim, who's directing the "grass roots" Tea Party, etc. A number of these segments date back to last summer, when FreedomWorks and other organizations planted demonstrators at town hall meetings to threaten and intimidate our representatives. For the more informed among us, little if anything new here. But for people who've bought into the propaganda, who actually believe in the ca-ca-poo-poo being put out by the insurance companies and their subsidiary, the Republican party, this is the one show, above all others, they should see. It's a compendium of all the dishonest, disgraceful stuff the right has been pulling for the past year. It was nasty enough seeing this crapola go down in real time, but watching it cram-packed into an hour is like being punched in the stomach repeatedly. If you know a conservative who still has enough independence left to watch this show with an open mind, direct them towards it. I'm sure it'll be downloadable on iTunes around midnight (3/9/10), and clips will probably be up on the MSNBC website for the remainder of this week. And if they can watch this hour and not feel horribly used, then write them off; there's no hope for them.
