Race and Health Care Reform

Rather than weight in on the health care bill with a hearty eye-roll at the Tea Party movement, I point to Frank Rich's New York Times Op-Ed. He suggests that the conservative outrage over the bill stems from underlying racism.

I can't help but think he's right. If congressman Emanuel Cleaver were white, I don't think that protester would have spit on him.
