This is a sort of blah post in USA Today written by Pelosi and Hoyer. I didn't like the Un-American angle when Republicans were throwing it out and I don't particularly care for it now. But there's a funny joke if you read the comments and it deserves praise. To sum up the article, Pelosi and Hoyer consider the protests that are getting in the way of them promoting their health care plan is Un-American. Specifically: "Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American. Drowning out the facts is how we failed at this task for decades."
I guess. I keep remembering the saying, "You have the right to speak, but you don't have the right to be heard," but I don't really know where that came from and quite frankly I don't really care. Either way, the sentiment is not as amusing as the reply from Lucius Verginius: "The obvious thing for Pelosi to do is to create a committee to investigate the protestors—call it the House Committee on Un-American Activities."
Overt McCarthy humor is a bit stale these days but a nice subtle joke is still appreciated in my book. Good game, sir.
