More on Terri Schiavo.
And the ever-crazy Jill Stanek. Birthers (those who keep asking for Obama's birth certificate), Deathers (those who think the government is out to save money on their hides), Teabaggers (who have coopted a sex term for their anti-government rallying), Astroturfers (who spout the line of Republicans and corporations on corporate dimes). Watching the town hall videos that are circulating, I am ashamed of how uninformed some of these speakers are, at how unwilling they are to find out the facts, and how quick they are to speak loudly about something they refuse to learn about. This is a true low point in public discourse.
I'm reminded that democracy only works when the voting public is educated.
And me at ReligionDispatches, in case you need the reminder.
