THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS IT’S NOT CONCERNED ABOUT HEALTH CARE PROTESTS. They’re so unconcerned that they’re dispatching surrogates to claim the protests are fake.

For a graphic illustration of the difference between real and contrived protests, see this. Meanwhile, how’s all that “post-partisan” hope-and-change talk going to play into a strategy to call your opponents dumb rednecks who are pawns of Satan insurance companies? Can they do this without hurting their own credibility?

UPDATE: They’re not worried about the protests, but they’re looking for snitches.

ANOTHER UPDATE: From Eugene Volokh, a critical take on the “snitches” angle. Interesting discussion in the comments, too.
