I don't know what else to call this guy. He showed up outside President Obama's town hall this morning carrying a 9mm -- a legal thing to do in New Hampshire, but an odd comment on health care reform.
It only took minutes for one conservative blogger to claim that this guy must be a federal agent (because he had an ear piece), though that claim didn't survive long in the face of televised interviews with the gunman.
There are those of us who want to have reasoned debate about competing models of health care reform. There are others among us who bring guns to the scene.
I thank god and the secret service that this man did not shoot anybody. I worry that someone with unconcealed ideology and a concealed weapon may appear at one of these events.
