It has been a riot watching the tea-baggers on the news, and reading stories about them. Tea-baggers, those are the people showing up at the so-called tea parties all over the U.S. They remind me of the "brown shirts" and other manipulated fools in history who got sucked into doing the dirty work for people who use them, but also look down on them with contempt. Useful idiots you could call them.
Sadly, most of them are not idiots, and in most circumstances normal, decent people whose biggest mistake is to let others do their thinking for them. People who have abandoned reason in favour of reacting with emotion rather than logic.

My greatest source of amusement the past few weeks has been watching a lot of Americans act like gullible idiots on the health care issue. What is even more amusing is that progressives like Representative Denis Kucinich and the usual gaggle of right-wing nut bars both oppose the Obama health care plan. Of course they do not oppose it for the same reason.
