Will Brooke is running for Congress in Alabama, and thought it would be just great to shoot up a copy of the Affordable Care Act, because it hasn't been damaged enough.

I suppose I shouldn't have the visceral reaction to this that I have, but I do. Can you imagine this dude putting a copy of Medicare out there and shooting it up in order to do some "real damage?" How do you suppose that would play with Alabama seniors?

What I hear when he says he wants to do real damage are the words "Die and die quickly."

And wow, you've got to love this:

“Well we had some fun and knocked some holes in it,” Brooke tells the camera, “but we didn’t quite get the job done. Looks like we’ll have to resort to more extreme measures to get rid of Obamacare and replace it with a market based solution.”

That’s when the Altec Whisper Chipper comes into play.

Dude. Wake up. The ACA is a market-based solution hatched by conservatives way back before they were consumed by Obamacare Derangement Syndrome.

It's mean-spirited and intended as a middle finger to anyone who dares to want health care for affordable prices. My only consolation is that he isn't paying attention to what's actually happening right now. When he takes a shot at that pile of paper, he's telling the 59 percent of us who think they should improve or keep the ACA that we can just go straight to hell.

If I go there, I'm dragging this dude right along with me on the sharp end of my pitchfork.

Can you help us out?
