The Fruits of Their Labor

It must be the belief on the left that heaping abuse on opponents will somehow win them over. Today we see the results of that peculiar strategy:

Up to two million people marched to the U.S. Capitol today, carrying signs with slogans such as "Obamacare makes me sick" as they protested the president's health care plan and what they say is out-of-control spending.

The line of protesters spread across Pennsylvania Avenue for blocks, all the way to the capitol, according to the Washington Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency.

People were chanting "enough, enough" and "We the People." Others yelled "You lie, you lie!" and "Pelosi has to go," referring to California congresswoman Nancy Pelosi.

Demonstrators waved U.S. flags and held signs reading "Go Green Recycle Congress" and "I'm Not Your ATM." Men wore colonial costumes as they listened to speakers who warned of "judgment day" - Election Day 2010.

The article notes that one (1) person carried a poster of the President with a mustache added to make him look like Hitler. Deplorable to be sure but by now old hat. A fresher and more effective approach would be to alter pictures of the President to make him look like Fidel or Hugo Chavez; the left would be hard-pressed explaining why that is insulting. The image below should also give them conniptions.
