Peruse the left-wing web-sites and you’ll see them making much of the “mean signs” and associated right-wing extremists at the various protests against the Democratic health care overhaul.
Lately, they’ve been dwelling on gun-toting William Kostric who showed up outside the President’s “townhall” meeting yesterday in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, with Chris Matthews even inviting him onto his MSNBC show “Hardball.” While conservatives denounce the guy as “nuts,” the left is determined to portray him as representative of the right.
Okay, fine, I’ll play that game. If they believe that extremist is representative of the GOP, then anti-gay nutbag and Democrat Fred Phelps is representative of the President’s party.
There are kooks on both sides, but somehow all too many liberal pundits and left-wing bloggers see such nutcases as representative of the GOP (and conservatives in general), but as aberrations on the left.
