Is it appropriate for Tea Partiers to use images of concentration camp victims to illustrate the horrors of health care reform? “You bet,” says former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO).
Late Update: I went back watched the video in question several times. And though Tancredo said “you bet” to the “appropriate” question, it seems to me that he got confused in the cross-talk between him and the interviewer David Shuster. In context, I think Tancredo meant to say it was inappropriate, in other words, the opposite. The perils of live smash-mouth television. Don’t worry. Tancredo said lots of other crazy stuff. But I don’t think he meant to say this was okay.
