According to a ChicagoNow blogger, Congressman Joe Walsh recently was "warning voters at a well-attended townhall that thanks to ObamaCare, the 2012 election may be our last chance to save America." This reminds me of the English fable of Chicken Little.
One day Chicken Little was foraging near an oak tree when an acorn fell on his head. "The sky is falling. The sky is falling." He raved. He passed the word to his friends Cocky-Locky, Ducky-Lucky, Goosey-Loosey, and Turkey-Lurkey. And they all decided en masse to report the dire news to the king. On the way they met Foxy-Loxy who offered them the sanctuary of his lair until the crisis had passed. One by one the gullible fowl were eaten, and if not for Cocky-Locky's frantic cry for help, Chicken Little would have suffered the same fate.
The moral of the fable? Don't let paranoia and hysteria lead you down the path of self-destruction. No matter what Republican Joe Walsh and his fellow henchmen on the Right tell you.
