Big Lies and Big Money

That these health care protests are being organized by right wing organizations and financed by big money is not new news - unless you're Paul Klugman of the New York Times. Klugman says "while the organizers are as crass as they come, I haven't seen any evidence that the people disrupting those town halls are Florida-style rent-a-mobs." Klugman is referring to the 2000 demonstrations in Miami that disrupted the vote count between George W. Bush and Al Gore.

There is plenty of evidence to the contrary. In a sobering fact-check of her own, Rachel Maddow "explains how right-wing Republican operatives and corporate fat cats are spreading lies, staging fake protests, and disrupting townhall meetings."
