Losing Ugly 

Congresswoman Virginia Foxx has an interview with GoBlueRidge up this a.m. She utters the words "leftist" and "very radical leftist" and then pivots immediately to point with alarm at Mexican people: "I believe the next thing that will be done will be to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants."

If you can't win on the facts, pound the table and yell, eh Madam Foxx?

This from the fine and upstanding human being who said the following things:
"There are no Americans who don't have healthcare. Everybody in this country has access to healthcare." July 24, 2009, in a Capitol Hill press conference

A Republican health care plan would "make sure we bring down the cost of health care for all Americans and that ensures affordable access for all Americans and is pro-life because it will not put seniors in a position of being put to death by their government." July 28, 2009, on the floor of the U.S. Congress

"I believe we have more to fear from the potential of that [health reform] bill passing than we do from any terrorist right now in any country." November 2, 2009, on the floor of the U.S. House

"I don't see raising the minimum wage as helping American workers." Quoted in an article in Roll Call, Dec. 10, 2009

Bad Show 

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill "Welcome Wagon" lost all its wheels last night when former Colorado congressman Tom Tancredo attempted to speak in a university classroom and was silenced by protesters and essentially run out of the building. A window was broken. Pepper spray was used by the campus police. Bad, bad scene.

There's finger-wagging going on this morning at that campus, and many people obviously need to feel ashamed. That was not the way to respond to a different opinion.
