Remember Barbara Boxer's attack on the town hall protesters, calling them disruptive "plants" because they were too well-dressed to be protesters? She had a point: They were well-dressed. Most protesters lack real professions allowing them to purchase clean clothes... and they stink.
Boxer believed that these other, button-downed folks were all part of a right-wing plot meant to stir up fear and perhaps soup. And Tuesday, President Obama kept the joke alive at his own town hall, saying he didn't "want people thinking I just have a bunch of plants in here."
But when it comes to plants, the White House response is beginning to look like a spread in "House and Garden."
Michelle Malkin points out that the little girl at Obama's town meeting asking about those old people "saying mean things" belongs to a major Obama campaigner and donor.
Now, using a kid to smear some old folks is yucky. But if an adorable child is concerned over evil people saying mean things, how can you not agree? I mean, children are our future, as long as they agree with Obama. And besides, old people are old; a drain on our resources. And they smell of Vicks.
Meanwhile, according to many Web sites, that jackass parading around a "Barack Obama as Hitler" poster at a John Dingle town hall may actually have been a John Dingle supporter. Remember, Dingle was the douche who compared health care protesters to the KKK. The KKK and Nazis: That's quite a coincidence, don't you think?
But hey, maybe I'm a plant. I do require regular watering and I'm often soiled.
