Five of the most-liked Washington Post comments from the last 24 hours

Politics continues its grip on our top comments, with the exception of a local story on deer sterilization.

1. From This is the ad every Democrat should be scared of in 2014 by Chris Cillizza; giantsfan (25 likes)

In summary: liberals should be afraid when ads point out the truth.

2. From The GOP Repeal Trap by Greg Sargent; grumpygrampa8 (17 likes)

Fact: I still have the insurance I always had, my doctor has not quit nor is there a death panel in sight.

Why settle for some second-rate Republican alternative even if they could come up with one, that is a day late and a dollar short like 99 percent of Republican “alternatives.” [Read the full comment here.]

Tie — 3. From Paul Ryan heads up the political ladder by Jennifer Rubin; SFNM (10 likes)

We’re all waiting breathlessly for Dr. Ryan’s healthcare plan: “Take two aspirin and go to your nearest emergency room.”

Tie — 3. From Fairfax City to try a new approach to deer: surgical sterilization of does by Tom Jackman; jpotosky (10 likes)

Cute deer: Lyme disease, vegetation destroyed, deer in rut, deer attracting coyotes, deer losing fear of people, deer/auto collisions, taxpayers dollars wasted (Borrowed money from China to pay for this?)

Tie — 3. From The plight of Dems in 2014 by Jennifer Rubin; Maximus Powerus (10 likes)

“Democrats promised you could keep your insurance and you can’t.”

Huh. I’m keeping mine. Oh, wait. Are you taking something that affects a very small percentage of the population and assuming it’s going to be a key issue for everybody? You probably shouldn’t do that.
