Stephen Colbert isn't the only political heavyweight who's been monitoring the waves of grassroots-ish opposition to health care reform that are sweeping-ish the country.
California Senator Barbara Boxer, seen here in a stunning periwinkle suit accessorized with a contrasting chunky multi-strand necklace and black peep-toe raffia wedges, has also been paying attention, and she's noticed a verrrrry suspicious detail about some of the people at these confrontational town hall meetings. (Aside from the shrieking about Nazis thing.)
As she explained on MSNBC's Hardball last night, something's sartorially amiss…
BOXER: [...] And by the way, I saw some of the clips of people storming these town hall meetings. The last time I saw well-dressed people doing this, was when Al Gore asked me to go down to Florida when they were recounting the ballots, and I was confronted with the same type of people.
They were there screaming and yelling, "Go back to California! Get out of here!" and all the rest of it, until I finally looked at them and I said, "You know what? Your hero Ronald Reagan is from California, you should show a little respect." And then they quieted down.
Barbara Boxer raises an important and on-trend point! Face it, America, real patriots don't have time for frivolous extras like "pants" and "shirts," let alone "ties" or "underwear."
If you're really committed to stopping the terrible threat of ObamaKillGrannyCare, you will get out there and do it the way God (Ronald Reagan) intended you to do it, that is, stark naked except for a loincloth emblazoned with Sean Hannity's face.
