Hope this is an effective approach - the good people of Washington state truly need to wake up and smell the coffee, so to speak.

Considering that the majority of Americans are against Obamacare, this might not have been her finest moment.

Murray is making absolutely the correct move here.

The voters are going to be holding her responsible for her vote, pretending that she didn’t know what was going down with obamacare isn’t believable.

The only sensible move is to stand up and make the case you did the right thing.

If Murray wins then maybe in 2 years when the full effects of this monstrosity of a health bill are felt, they can go after Cantwell and try to beat her.

“jizya” : in islam, a financial penalty incurred for all those who have not submitted to islam.

Read this on Hillbuzz....they have an interesting “take” on mooselimbs being exempt from obamacare.....WE, as Christians, will be paying for mooselimbs’ healthcare, as they consider insurance tantamount to gambling.

“’Most Retarded Politician of the Year’ award”—well said.
But, the “Won” is mooselimbs’ best friend........

As you and many others may know, Patty is "elected" by committte staffers and Congressional aids as the dumbest politican in D.C.

So how did she get to be No.4 in the present senate majority? By walking lock-step with leadership....blindly.

Rossi did that in the last debate and slammed her on it.
I don’t remember his exact words, but it was something like:
Did you write the part that removes $XX from Medicaire, or did you write the part that will increase yyyy by $xxx, or did you write the part that.....

There’s a FR thread on the debate and there was a video of it on C-SPAM (not sure if it’s still up or not)
