My voice in the chorus of boos

by Smitty (h/t Townhall)

If you listen very closely, I'm coming in from the right side of the screen, and you can hear me add to the booing of Howard Dean. No, you can't.

Nevertheless, I encourage everyone to comb their Congresscritter's website, find the town hall meeting, attend, and enjoy a bit of primal scream therapy. You, and the unborn generations supporting the federal pyramid scheme, are paying an awful lot of money for the privilege. These are not cheap yucks. Get some.

The clip ends just short of Dean's use of the word 'Constitution', the sole appearance of the noun the whole evening, from the stage, anyway. A few of us up in nosebleed honored it in this horrible breach called ObamaCare. That they even fielded a question on tort reform was somewhat impressive, but the answer was akin to describing having four slashed tires on the car and only replacing three. Is the question actually about a systematic analysis of medicine in the US, or a battle of the word processors to see who can turn the most byzantine cross-breed of Molloy and War and Peace.

Or, as Madison laid it down with less hyperbole:
It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is to-day, can guess what it will be to-morrow.
