Annals of "progressive" idiocy
In effect, yesterday['s health insurance reform kabukijerk] was about both sides asking the other a fundamental question. Obama's question for Republicans was, "We're offering a bipartisan, comprehensive package built around principles you claim to support. Are you willing to work with us?" Republicans came with their own question: "Will you throw out all the work you've done and promise to let us kill reform with a filibuster?" Both sides have the same answer to the competing questions: "No."
Think about that for a moment.
Could the kabuki be any more clear? Could it be... that both legacy parties are working from the very same "principles"?
