Irony, thy name is

G4S, the British company that bought Wackenhut, and contractor-employer of the underpaid and poorly-treated security guards who are guarding Independence Hall.

Government-hating, self-reliant red staters

Yes, of course you knew.

Why so surprised?

Ezra Klein:

I was just on Mark Thompson’s Sirius radio show, and boy, the callers were really, really angry about proposed Medicare cuts. (And, as I reminded them, Medicaid is what pays for our parents if they need nursing home care.)

I mean really, really angry. And as Mark pointed out, it’s not as if we can go ahead and vote for Michele Bachmann, so what are people supposed to do with that anger? Bloggers are already being attacked for even criticizing Obama, as he reminded me.
