1:30 PM -- MediaBistro reveals that it was Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-Texas), who shouted "Baby Killer" at Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) as the House was passing healthcare reform. (Actually The Washington Post broke the story, but I'm not a subscriber, so we'll go second-hand.)

  • Neugebauer says he was not referring to Rep. Bart Stupak, but instead, "I exclaimed the phrase 'it's a baby killer' in reference to the agreement reached by the Democratic leadership."

Well, alright then. Either way, it certainly elevates the tone of the debate.

Meanwhile the CIA World Factbook ranks the USA 46th in the world in infant mortality rates, just behind Cuba and laps behind those Stalinist hell-holes Canada, France, and the UK.

Next up: "Granny Killer" (or have we been there?). The CIA ranks the US 49th in life expectancy.

Make of it what you will. And you will.
