Health Reform = Japanese Kamikaze Attack

Abby Zimet

More right-wing quackery on health reform from Sen. Lindsey
Graham and Glenn Beck, who picked up Graham's charge that Democrats are
making a "suicide run" and ran
with it all the way to Pearl Harbor. But California Rep. Mike Honda - a
Japanese-American interned in a prison camp during World War II -
blasted them both, noting, "The difference between '42 and 2010 is that
I can say something back."

"This event is like Pearl Harbor. It will wake people up and
they'll go, 'Wait, wait, wait. What did they just do?'" - the inimitable
Glenn Beck.
