Really Joe, I don't believe you ever mention a thing about the remarks Hal made about my nephew getting killed in Iraq.

Rod, Austin Whatnotley was the one that created that line.  Remember?? I know I do ....  it was part of my 7-day time out.

Rod, I am only commenting on your words and for you to somehow want to shift the blame to someone else, for this hateful comment, tells me everything I need to know.  Never have I met another person who actually wished for the death of someone, who's political views you don't share.  I am left speechless.  If you don't know why this comment is so hateful, it will do me no good to try and explain it to you.

As to your slur against Hal, I don't believe a word of it and I insist that you provide the proof.  It is one thing for you to spew hateful comments, but quite another to accuse another, without the proof.  If you can't produce the proof, then you have a second apology to make.

It was easy to do a search and find the post you were talking about. It was made by AustinWesley in Febrary of 2007. The topic was Is healthcare a right (of course it was) and AustinWesley was responding to Rapidrod. He posted:

You know you just used your own nephew's death to I guess somehow support your stance on why people shouldn't have healthcare, unless of course that someone is you.

This has gotten me to wondering if according to your own values that perhaps it was a blessing your nephew was a casualty and fortunately not just another returned quadrapalegic who'll be left to some shabby home for our heros or sucking out of the system helping you?
~AustinWesley

What was much more interesting was the exchange between RapidRod and AustinWesley after the post. I think it's very telling that it all ends with a smiley-face emoticon. It's a long topic, but well worth the read. It all starts at reply 320.

It's all a bit telling.  Looks like she took her ball and went home.

  Damn you're good, you actually found the post.  With a lil cross referencing from the day of the comment I should be able to find where Ann slapped me hard with a TO stick...

  Can't believe I remembered Austin Wheatley's name.....

Grayson launches NamesOfTheDead.com

Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson has launched a website, NamesOfTheDead.com, to honor the 44,000 people who die every year because they don't have health insurance.

"I have created this project in their memory. I hope that honoring them will help us end this senseless loss of American lives," Grayson writes on the site. "If you have lost a loved one, please share the story of that loved one with us. Help us ensure that their legacy is a more just America, where every life that can be saved will be saved."

Grayson announced the site on the House floor today and the NRCC already has a clip of it up under the title, "Alan Grayson's most shamless stunt yet?"

He begins talking about the website at about 2 minutes in:
