Holier than thou

It's a free country:

CHARLOTTE, April 6 -- Harry Taylor got the chance Thursday to do what frustrated liberals across the country have wanted to do for a long time: He stood up and told off the president.

Here's the recording. Watch the lady seated to the man's right. Is there a lip reader in the house?

Given the opportunity to ask the President a question, the man said, "I don't have a question."

Holier-than-thou zealots rarely do, nor do they care what the other guy says:

"I didn't care about his response," Taylor said. "I wanted to say what I wanted to say and I wanted him to know that despite being in a room with a thousand people who love him . . . there are plenty of people out there who don't agree with him in any way, shape or form."

Thanks for the show, Harry.
