Today we saw a breathtaking exercise in absurdity. The health care charade was nothing more than a political vogue-ing session in which each side struck a pose. But the Democrats lost today for 4 reasons: 1. Big majorities of Americans hate their bills; 2. Big majorities of Americans want the big government spending stopped; 3. The Republicans presented sound and responsible ideas; and 4. The president was rude, arrogant, and imperious. (Trying to shut up Senator John McCain, American hero, by reminding him that “the election’s over”? I’m sorry, but the President is an obnoxious jerk.)
I’ll be all over the health care carnival of idiocy this weekend on the radio show, but consider this: The Bama repeatedly stressed the urgency of getting “reform” done because “people are suffering.” He said the “people” need the Democrats’ plan “now” because they “cannot wait” any longer. But the benefits of their monstrosity don’t kick in for years. So, I guess if you’re “suffering right now,” you’re screwed.
