What the hell is wrong with these people?

Mt. Shasta News, via Kleiman:
Republican Congressman Wally Herger held a health care town hall meeting Aug. 18 at Simpson University in Redding, where a partisan crowd of over 2,000 people loudly cheered Herger’s position that a public option was “unacceptable.” * * *

One speaker said he could trace his ancestors back to the Mayflower and said “they did not arrive holding their hands out for help.”

I am a proud right wing terrorist,” he declared to cheers.

Herger praised the man’s attitude.

“Amen, God bless you,” Herger said with a broad smile. “There is a great American.”
Leaving aside the obvious, did our Mayflower descendant ever read about Thanksgiving?
