This typist, 12/9/09:
The vacuum created by a vapid agenda and zero criticism for a process in which Dems lied to high heaven about being open and transparent and considering all options is leading to essential policy being decided in a panicky clusterfuck for the ages.
Shit and sausage everywhere, and not a health inspector in sight.
Something's going to be slapped on the plate NOW NOW NOW, with the barest deliberation and even less — surprise! — transparency.
Recalls to me the old ads, "is this any way to run an airline?"
At this point, I'd suggest they fly this monstrosity into the Potomac and hope it will take out as few innocent people as possible.
Who knows what further monstrosities will be slipped into the bill as various and sundry claims of inclusiveness, prudence, and public review are either sucked down the memory hole or are bronzed as historically historic by Truthy Believers?
Don't worry, they'll only affect the people under the bus, which for them is apparently "the right side of history."
