Barney Frank took a protester to task after she refered to Obama's "Nazi" health care reform. He asked the woman "on what planet" does she live, and said that trying to have a serious discussion with her about health care would be like talking to a dining room table.
Now, comes the tut-tut of the conservative media. How both sides are engaging in uncivil discourse…
… as if there is no difference between (1) mobs of shouting angry conservatives, many of them playing the Nazi/facism card, some of them carrying guns and (2) the rare pushback against those mobs (like Barney Frank's response).
Sure, uncivility can be found on both sides, but how about a little perspective on the degree and frequency?
