I work in the Capitol and had to go in this past weekend, and the protestors were just filled with so much hate. They were completely misinformed about the health-care bill, and I'm guessing 95% of them would benefit from it. But it hardly mattered, because it was just a proxy for their rage. They were yelling about my pals and faggots and gun rights and God and the Constitution and abortion and Mexicans and the liberal media and...just everything. Like you said, the whole party is such a mishmash of interests; it seems to be a catch-all for the dregs of society. What was especially unsettling is they'd be yelling all this hateful stuff and then smile at me and ask where they could get a bite to eat. Like it was just a big party.
