  •  What's f@#king stupid is the nonsense claim (6+ / 0-)

    that we need Republicans to pass health care legislation.  We don't, of course.  We just need some Democrats to quit acting like Republicans.  Hence, the ads.

    The really maddening thing about this is that, politically speaking, the smart thing for the Dems to do is pass this reform with a strong public option over the objections of the Republicans.  A health care program that works for everybody and was associated solely with the Dems would keep the Repubs in the wilderness for decades.  On the other hand, the surest way to breathe life back into the corpse that is the modern Republican party is for Dems to resurrect the old saw that there just isn't any real difference between the two parties - which is what it'll look like to a lot of people if they fail to pass real reform.

    At least, that's how it seems to me.
