Well, they did it…

…but only because Stupak caved. And for what? A meaningless Presidential declaration and $726,409 in airport grants. Once again, I am reminded of “A Man for All Seasons“:

MORE:  I have one question to ask the witness. (RICH stops) That’s a chain of office you are wearing. (Reluctantly RICH faces him) May I see it? (NORFOLK motions him to approach. MORE examines the medallion) The red dragon. (To CROMWELL) What’s this?

CROMWELL:  Sir Richard is appointed Attorney-General for Wales.

MORE:  (Looking into RICH’S face, with pain and amusement) For Wales? Why, Richard, it profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world . . . But for Wales! (Exit RICH, stiff-faced, but infrangibly dignified)

Sen. Ben Nelson is probably thanking his lucky stars tonight that someone else will now get the blame for Obamacare.

As for me, well, I plan to spend several thousand dollars between now and November helping to defeat the Democrats who voted for this abomination.

And I’ve started. I’ve sent $100 to Dr. Dan Benishek, who’s running against Stupak (thanks to Daniel Blatt over at GayPatriot for the pointer as well as to the link my ‘Stupak caves’ post). I even gritted my teeth and donated $200 to the GOP’s “Fire Pelosi” campaign. (The teeth-gritting is not because I don’t want to see Pelosi out as Speaker, but because I fear the GOP will find some way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.)  ..bruce w..
