OK, I realize this isn't funny

So why am I laughing?

I've checked. It really happened. The Washington Post and Guardian are both reporting it. But I liked this guy's take on it.

Call it a case of bite and run, but a 65-year-old man opposed to health care reform struck another man who was trying to reach a pro-reform rally of 100 participants -- and had half his pinky finger bitten off in return. And, in a dramatic tour de force of socialized medicine, the victim was sent home by doctors after they reattached the digit -- all covered by his Medicare policy.

I read about this last night on Twitter, from someone who was there. There were only about 7 anti-healthcare nuts, they were way outnumbered.

That's part of the whole problem -- the nuts are getting all the attention, and it makes it appear as though everyone is against. In reality, the vast majority want some kind of healthcare reform, with a public option. But it's more exciting for the media to concentrate on the nutty teabaggers.

My pinkie, my pinkie, my kingdom for a pinkie but I guess he has that terrible Medicare a “Single-payer health care insurance” what a hypocrite. Did the little pinkie cry "Wee-wee-wee!" all the way home? It real should have been his right pinky finger that would have been a better story. They are haters not debaters.
