George Will's Wild False Equivalence: Furious Teabaggers Are Like Fans of Whole Food

For George Will there is nothing more contemptible than an heirloom tomato. Heirloom tomatoes and Toyota Prius automobiles represent all that is wrong with the Washington Metro area and the country in general. Do you know who drives Toyota Priuses and eats heirloom tomatoes? You guessed it. Liberals!! Seething liberals, that's who. And do you know what those liberals are seething about? Not sure?

It's speed humps. They are in such a hurry to get to the nearest Whole Foods grocery store that slowing down their Prius to go over a speed hump just plain breaks their patience. They've taken to honking as they go over speed humps, these liberals. They honk to annoy their liberal brethren who live on the blocks with speed humps. Hell, they've even been known to flip porch-dwelling liberals the bird from their Toyota Priuses as they go honking their way over the speed humps.

And the reason George Will brings this up is because it offends him that liberals have the poor taste to call access to health care a human right.
