    weak the final conference bill is going to be? So far 4 of the 5 committees have passed a health care bill. All 4 of them are strong bills. mcjoan's diary is assuming that all 4 of those bills are going to be disregarded and the Finance committee's bill is going to be the final bill, because of some secret conspiracy theory she has.  Silly stuff. We all should know better.

    •  Your view of how strong the bills are ... (3+ / 0-)

      ...and my view are not the same. But I didn't "claim to know." I speculated within the context of the commenter's point about Obama "inserting" the bill it wants, a major speculation in itself. Since I trust mcjoan's reporting from long experience, and she has been covering this beat thoroughly for a long time, I'll let others judge who is being silly here and who should know better.

      Some people would be better off not reading diaries they comment on, since they already have all the answers.

    •  Not a CT but a theory (0+ / 0-)

      about a conspiracy -- with quotes from claimed conspirators.

      You're stupid if you don't think people in DC conspire. You're really stupid if you don't know the difference between a "conspiracy theory" and a theory about a conspiracy.
