Despite all the evidence that show with zero shadow of doubt that the last compromise in the Senate healthcare bill is nothing but utter defeat for the public option and for the progressive demands for healthcare, let us convince ourselves on this forum that this healthcare is good.
Now let us go the extra mile and convince ourselves that it is great, and I even will ask you folks to go one more mile and convince ourselves that this is the greatest piece of legislation since Social Security. On a personal level I am now convincing myself that it is the greatest piece of legislation ever. My self convincing on this matter shall be achieved by no later than 3:34 PM PST today December 9 2009.
It is always great to feel great and create an alternative reality. What a wonderful thing our mind can be when we detach ourselves form the harsh reality and utter political defeat and tell ourselves that everything is great and not only great but super great and not only super great but the best ever.
So let us all embark on this journey of self delusions.
