‘Doctor’ at Jackson-Lee town hall: lying, and defensive about it.

Unrepentant liar, astroturfer, lacking in manners, plausible link to radical left-wing activist: if I was going to create someone designed to discredit health care rationing supporters, the result would look just like Roxana Mayer.

I covered this briefly yesterday on another social media site (which is a pretentious way of saying that I Twittered it): Patterico’s Pontifications tracked down a ‘Doctor’ Roxana Mayer who spoke in favor of health care rationing at what is rapidly becoming Sheila Jackson-Lee’s infamous town hall event.
