Conservative columnist and former George W. Bush Speechwriter David Frum's take on last nights health care reform victory...
"So today’s defeat for free-market economics and Republican values is a huge win for the conservative entertainment industry. Their listeners and viewers will now be even more enraged, even more frustrated, even more disappointed in everybody except the responsibility-free talkers on television and radio. For them, it’s mission accomplished. For the cause they purport to represent, it’s Waterloo all right: ours. "
Frum of course was referring to GOP mental giant Senator Jim Demint, who predicted the defeat of Health Care Reform would be President Obama's "Waterloo".
Now that Health Care Reform has passed and will become law, and all the nutjob Teabaggers can do is scream their tiny heads off and threaten an unending series of lawsuits. (That will all be thrown out...) I find my self wanting to call up Senator Demint and ask him the great Dr. Phil question; So Jim, that whole "Waterloo" idea ... How's that workin' out for you?
I love Markos' take on all of this (via dailykosTV)
Senator Jim Demint, this one's for you !
