Forget comedy clubs, if you really want a laugh these days you simply have to venture over to the Media Matters website. The extent to which the organization is willing to contort reality to keep fellow progressives in line is nothing short of an expert yoga class. Given their recent declaration of war against Fox News for perceived bias, and the questionable legality of it given the groups charity tax status, this is as surprising as the sun rising in the east each morning. There is no length to which Media Matters employees will not go to defend anything Democrats do; its what theyre paid to do. So it came as little surprise that on the one-year anniversary of Obamacares passage, Media Matters was there to defend the unpopular law.
Media Matters has mocked Glenn Beck for saying, This is the end of America as we know it, and Rush Limbaugh for stating that if Obamacare became law, the concept of individual freedom and liberty will have been obliterated. But a funny thing happened soon after the ink on the bill dried: a U.S. court ruled that Americans mental activity can be regulated by the government. Clinton appointee Gladys Keesler wrote:
As previous Commerce Clause cases have all involved physical activity, as opposed to mental activity, i.e. decision-making, there is little judicial guidance on whether the latter falls within Congresss power. However, this Court finds the distinction, which Plaintiffs rely on heavily, to be of little significance. It is pure semantics to argue that an individual who makes a choice to forgo health insurance is not acting, especially given the serious economic and health-related consequences to every individual of that choice.

Media Matters is sad and pathetic.
They cant win people with their lame ideas so they have to use force, libel and slander.
They have to attack. Bunch of thugs.
*sniff* *sniff* Whats that awful powerful stench?!?!?!
Oh yeah, its fear and desperation from the Left
I bet the HIV rate at Media Matters approaches 90%.
