    Isn't it ironic that the Obamacare health bill, named after Teddy Kennedy, will go down in flames because of the guy who won his old Senate seat? LOL!

    Deplorable Bitter Clinger in Liberal La La Land
    Every liberal politician in congress had their seat cushion sucked up their sphincter when they heard a Republican won a seat that was held by a Democrat for the last 50 years in one of the most liberal states in the country.

    So while pulling the cushion out of their behinds, it dawned on them that the "Health Care Reform Bill" was not about reform, but about a massive expansion of health care funded by rationing those who can afford it to pay for those who can't, and that the American public is not going to stand for this nonsense.

    Suddenly there is talk of making this bill more "moderate" and actually do real reform like banning insurance companies from denying pre-existing conditions, etc.

    Frankly, I was hoping they'd continue this train wreck, so we could see liberals all but banished for a decade.

    Newly elected senator Brown said it best.
    "It's nor Teddy's seat. It's the people's seat."

    Do you suppose St. Peter told Ted that his old Senate Seat was won by a Republican just to see Ted's reaction and to see if Ted knew any new cuss words?

    Does anyone really think Ted has any access to St. Peter from the hot place he's in right now? Not if there's any justice in this world or the next. May he burn for eternity.

    Burn, indeed.


    The "Regional Party of the South" has opened up a new branch office in Massachusetts. How sweet.

    Maybe now we can have some legislation that truly is health care reform that we can live with. For example,no prexsisitng condition clause, letting small employers group together to create assocaitons to enhance numbers and buying power. Stop frivouls law suits, common sense on awards made to plaintiffs just to name a few. Oh and maybe have members of congress and the senate be part of what ever the health reform is that we the public are to be involved in.

    If you look at the numbers you will realize the following.

    Loosing the seat in Mass. was a god send to the Dem party.

    They now have the very excuse they needed to end this debockle, you ask why?

    Well they hade the power to pass it for the last year with just the strength of the Democratic seats held in both the Senate and the House, but, there were too many Dem's against it to get it past.

    Now they have a scape goat in Brown, which is all spin.

    Look at the numbers.
