Who cares about soundbites?

There’s no stopping this. And you’ll be amazed how easily it will pass the Senate. A year from now, the attitude will be “We got socialized medicine, and the world didn’t end! Those demotards were right.” 2010 will not be a bloodbath, people forget. And the ugly stuff doesn’t hit until 2013, remember. That is deliberately planned.

The GOP will be lucky to pick up twenty seats in the House, maybe even ten. The republic has been dying for decades; the ascension of Teleprompter Jesus is just the arrival of the minister for the funeral. Barry was right, the Nation Below Canada is no more exceptional than Greece or Turkey or Zimbabwe. The voters have seen to that.

It is time to sack DC.

Cogent. Truthful. Witty. Funny. Pure gold.

The worst is what may come. The bills will go to committee and the anti-abortion measures that accounted for Nelson’s support and for the critical votes in the House will not be stripped but rendered ambiguous. The meaning will be left to the interpretation of the judges, and relevant cases will not come under after 2013 when the act goes into effect. meanwhile liberal bureaucrats will wrote regs that all abortions for some. The number will than be gradually increased until it will cover most pregnancies. Both bills amount to usurpation. Congress has absolutely no authority to mandate that any citizen buy any form of insurance, but that doe snot stop them, nor has to even occured to Republicans to say that this is the case. I am waiting for some Republican Senator actually to get up on the floor and talk until they force him to shut up by calling for a vote of cloture. None of this gentleman’s game.

Wouldn't it be something if "Sheets" Byrd had a lucid moment...stay with me now...Byrd pulled out his tattered pocket U.S. Constitution, waved it around in his formerly flamboyant way, and cried out that this health care overhaul bill must not be passed because our beloved Constitution does not permit legislators to abuse it in this way.

Oh well...back to reality.
