Democrats on the rampage

Finally ! Just in time, the Democrats decided to start mud wrestling those evil Republicans in Congress over health care (and perhaps other issues---looks like Chris Dodd might go out with a bang. Good for him!). Hey Democrats! Remember how we won big about 16 months ago? Glad you're finally starting to play (hard)ball.

The "60 votes equals a majority" Senate we now have should be tackled, circumvented, and neutralized using whatever parliamentary and procedural tricks the Democrats can muster. Let's be clear: if the shoe were on the other foot, they'd be doing it to us. And then some.

The health care "reforms" now on the table are unsatisfactory, but I am in the camp of those who believe that the inclusion of the uninsured and protecting the insured against unreasonable and arbitrary loss of coverage are critical improvements and morally imperative. So let's proceed and work on the rest another year. After all, it took us more than 20 years to get into this mess.

Might even have to reassess the grit of Nancy "Peloser" as House speaker. Hmmm....
