Tea Party Sign: “Keep The Guvmint Out Of My Medicare”

It’s true — Tea Partiers really do want to keep the government out of their Medicare!

Sound Politics, a conservative Seattle-area blog, went to a local town hall by Democratic Rep. Rick Larsen, and gave a somewhat bemused take of the demonstrators on both sides of the fence:

“‘Keep the guvmint (sic) out of my medicare,'” our friendly narrator observes. “Not so sure about that one.”

It seems that this sentiment from the right is not an urban legend, after all. Either that, or some really clever left-wing plants have infiltrated into the crowds.
