Rather than believing that this blind pig suddenly found an ear of
corn, my guess is that the Dick Whisperer put his finger to the wind
and sensed thatHCR is going to pass. Since
he always wants to sit at the cool kids’ table in the cafeteria, he’s
started to lay the foundation for the inevitable “I saw it coming”
piece that will allow him to play reindeer games with the Democrats.
Which isn’t so different from anyone else, really: People like winning.
If I haven’t written about the ins and outs of HCR this week, it’s mainly that a) we’ve already established that the bill is far less than what we need but better than nothing so fucking get it done already so we can start talking about fixing it to become what we need and b) the debate has started to become a Suffering Contest in which I have no interest in participating.
So far the major point of interest for me is one of strategy: Fuck the Republicans for whining about process because their entire worldview for the past 30 years has been that no one cares about process and for what it’s worth they’ve beenright.
Political nerds, which make up exactly less than an effective percentage of the electorate, care about how something gets done. Everybody else just wants the flipping garage painted and doesn’t care if you use a sprayer or a paint stick or a brush. Just paint the garage already.
