When the story broke last night about a health care town hall scuffle in Thousand Oaks, Calif., that left one person without a part of his finger, it wasn’t clear who bit whom.
MoveOn activists were involved and their accounts colored much of the early coverage.
It now appears that the biter was an Obamacare supporter and the victim was an Obamacare foe.
Thankfully, doctors were able to reattach the severed digit.
No need to imagine the horrified fulminations from the White House to the New York Times to MSNBC if it had been the other way around.

Opponents of socialized medicine must also adjust their chants:
Hands off my health care…and teeth off my hands!
Afterthought: President Obama has been telling Americans to make sure they get their shots.
Now, we know why!
Old saying: If you point a finger, three point back at you.
New saying in the Age of Obama: If you point a finger, you might not get it back.
Remember: Under Obamacare, the health care protester’s finger would not have been re-attached.
Dr. O’s prescription: Take a pill.
