Roll Call posted a fascinating article on Wednesday detailing the growing sense of concern (or perhaps it would be more accurate to call it PANIC!) that many Congressional Democrats—especially those in marginally safe to contested seats—are experiencing over the rolling catastrophe of Obamacare’s implementation. For those who opposed the passage of the law in the first place, it’s a somewhat satisfying … Read More
Shut your stupid yap, you smug jackhole.
Allahpundit is right: this is the perfect way for Nancy Pelosi to end her tenure as Speaker of the House. Paternalistic? Check. Arrogant? Check. Detached from reality? Checky-check-check-check. And so our shameless, reckless, intrusive, imperious, and borderline-tyrannical 111th Congress slimes its way across the finish line without a hint of regret or introspection. Here’s hoping that there’s enough time to … Read More
Naturally, the effort failed, as Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is not an adult, but rather a political point-scoring machine.

Former Presidential Candidate and current Senatorial Embarrassment John Kerry opened his mouth today and a whole bunch of stupid stuff fell out of it. This condition, of course, is rampant among our congressional representatives these days; Kerry’s case is, I fear, terminal. From a U.S. News article entitled “John Kerry Says Voter Anger at Washington Is Hypocritical“: Times are tough, … Read More
Alternate headline: THEY LIED. But we knew that before they passed this rancid loaf, didn’t we? And frankly, they’ve been confirming that ever since. Regardless, here’s the news that anyone with any intelligence and honesty knew was coming: Congressional Budget Office estimates released Tuesday predict the health care overhaul will likely cost about $115 billion more in discretionary spending over … Read More
