Drawing a strained (that is really not the word) comparison between radio talk show hosts and murderous antislavery agitator John Brown, Steve Lubet suggests we're "at the brink of civil war" over health care. It's a perfect setup for reading an exchange of comments here about the nature and roots of conservative anger. Obviously, it goes both ways. Sean Hannity is a fear-monger, yes; but in this piece, so is Steve Lubet. He just has footnotes.
