The wingnuts don’t consistently merge health care reform with Obama’s name just because it’s catchy.

The most chilling and sickest thing about the Teabaggers strategy is the way their exploitation of death symbolism, merged with their hatred of the President, cross-fertilizing a “death to/of Obama” suggestion.
