Y'know, Trenell, I'm in agreement with you. It made me cringe when he said "neanderthals."

But I can't help but wonder: maybe that kind of stuff is necessary to get people to sit up and take notice of what he's saying? To counteract "death panels" and Obama as Hitler? Unfortunately, being polite and debating completely rationally and logically doesn't seem to get anyone anywhere anymore.

That said, I'm not sure this is any better. I'm just glad it's different, that it seems like something that could shift the debate. I'll be watching with interest.
