Here's hoping the good citizens of Colorado break his eggs next November.
Good lord, I hate this ridiculous use of "historic." Every time some politician or spinmeister uses it, it's merely empty rhetoric to imply something is good.
Hitler invading various European countries was "historic." Russia and China starving millions of their people was "historic." Fourteen thousand French dying in a heat wave was "historic." Now hundreds of millions of Americans subjected to rationed socialized medicine will be "historic."
I like to make omelets with the "magic bullet," a small infomercial high speed blender that subjects eggs to 600,000,000 RPM rotating knives until fluffy.
Metaphorical image implanted? Good: Jane Norton 2010!
Commenters appear to be missing the point of the article. Sure Bennet will lose his job. Dems expect him to be defeated in 2010. But once the insidious health care entitlement has worked its rotten magic on the will of the electorate the Democrat "party of government" can celebrate an even stronger urge to "vote for thems what took kare of usn's."
This is the looming gambit for 21st century America, and therefore the world: Do a plurality of Americans want to be sheeple, or the last best hope for man on Earth? It's clear what the Democrats think the answer is.
P.S. Here's the Kim Strassel missing link - http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704238104574602232786471914.html
Y'all are missing the point: the Dems are busy making themselves parachutes with D-A-S-C-H-L-E spelled across the tops! Who needs a job in the Senate when you can become a healthcare-civil-servant for life (or better: a lobbyist for same!). I feel verrrry badly for this....
It will take a true conservative landslide and some powerful leadership like we've not seen in a decade, to tear down what's being built into this bill.
No, not missing the point (though I did have the link wrong - thanks, jg (since corrected).
I would prefer a "No" vote to an electoral landslide any day of the week, but a consolation prize is a consolation prize.
Dark. Damn. Days. And I don't mean the Solstice.
