Pot? This is Kettle: Dems Suddenly Squeamish Over Tea Party Protesters

Question of the week: what's more artificial? The supposed astroturfers protesting state-controlled health care at town hall meetings or the outrage and disgust which the Left has been feigning at protesters? Do they remember what we put up with for the past eight years? There's hypocrisy and then there's hypocrisy. While President Obama organizes his own paid demonstrators recruited on craigslist, he could learn a lesson or two from President Bush, who was decent enough to accommodate Cindy Sheehan and often talked about the great American right to disagree and assemble freely. But that was the evil Bush administration. Obama is post-partisan and above that.

The only thing more fake than Democrats complaining about protests (except for Nancy Pelosi who really does disdain free speech), is the Fauxbama himself, who has been staging his own phony Hollywood style town hall meetings complete with pre-selected doughy-eyed girls (Hat tip: Gateway Pundit). Or as Laura Ingraham says, giving them the ol' razzle dazzle. It's such a set-up, it's like visiting an old county fair and watching a snake oil salesman push their Cure-All. "It's the health care fix that cures all licks!"

Are you buying it? Me, neither. Dissent is still patriotic, right? Maybe this will serve as a reminder.

To see more of Obama's astroturfing efforts, check out Yid with Lid's excellent blog. And none of this would have been possible without Zombie's wonderfully weird Hall of Shame catalog of protest photos. Music written and performed by Deadman.

If you are wondering why I haven't posted a blog in almost a week, I was in film school learning my new mad mac skills! More videos to follow.
