I’d like to post more, but the onboard ‘net access is expensive, slow, and flaky. Great sessions today: Jay Nordlinger interviewing Fred Thompson and John Sununu about running for president; a rather frank panel discussion on the potential 2012 Republican candidates involving John Miller, Tony Blankley, John Fund, Mona Charen, Robert Costa, and Raph Reed; [...]
…film at 11. Or thereabouts. Foolish, foolish man. He will forever be known (and not kindly) as the reason Obamacare passed the House. And, of course, Obama has such a great track record of keeping promises. ..bruce w.. P.S. Poster hat tip to Moonbattery, c/o American Digest.
…you’ve lost, period: WE UNDERSTAND the administration’s sense of urgency on health-care reform. But what is intended as a final sprint threatens to turn into something unseemly and, more important, contrary to Democrats’ promises of transparency and time for deliberation. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters Monday that she is leaning toward a parliamentary maneuver [...]
President Obama, Senate Majority Leader Reid, and Speaker Pelosi seemed determined to bend, twist, and subvert the rules and procedures of government — and possibly the Constitution itself — in order to pass Obamacare, which they seem to see as more important than any of those things.

If you’re not aware, the title of this post is how members of the United States Senate refer to themselves and their institution. I’d like to see any one of those 60 Democrats say that with a straight face anymore. ..bruce w..
Go ahead, tell me the good lord does not have a sense of humor. It looks like a major snowstorm is going to hit DC starting tonight, dumping up to 16″ of snow in the capital. As Webster can attest, DC siezes up with even an inch of snow, and at times in the 90s, [...]
…can’t trust that day. Or the weekend, apparently. Video above courtesy of Gateway Pundit. Not what George Lucas had in mind, I dare say. Backlash? What backlash? Once again, the “Serenity” trailer as a metaphor for the growing conservative rebellion. “No. They’re not going to see this coming.” The poster below has been showing up [...]
Via Wesley J. Smith at Critical Condition (National Review Online) comes this ‘death panel’ tale from the health care paradise to the north of us: Bonnie Cameron and Cindy Waters-Goodman do not know each other, but they have much in common. Both are feisty, small-town Ontarians who were young, busy mothers when hit with diagnoses [...]
Yeah, the process scares me as well. Hat tip to Mark Tapscott at the Washington Examiner. ..bruce w..
Philip Klein over at the American Spectator analyzes the Baucus Healthcare Bill and finds (surprise!) that the Democrats are playing fast and loose in order to get a favorable estimate from the Congressional Budget Office: Given that the CBO only puts a price tag on the first 10 years of a piece of legislation, Democrats [...]
