Don't count me among those who think the ruckus reception that many lawmakers have gotten at their "healthcare town meetings" is fake or orchestrated. There is a lot of anger out there directed at the Federal government and the ballooning deficit, and this power grab over healthcare is the epitome of that to a lot of people. Still, there have been many (mostly Obama supporters) who have attacked these angry people, calling them (among many other things) unAmerican.
So when I saw that Sen. John McCain was met by a verbal assault from the Left this week, it did feel phony to me. After weeks of the Left attacking people for their loud retaliation against Senators and Congressmen who support Obamacare, they've decided, "Well fine then, we'll just do the same thing." I know there is equally passionate support for some of the general ideas that Obama supports (can't really call it a 'bill' since Obama hasn't even considered putting his stamp of approval on any one bill), but the tactic of shouting at rallies, after weeks of attacking the opposition for the same thing, feels like they're just trying to keep up with the Joneses.
