Here’s to Your Health! November 22, 2009

I believe all of the Sturm und Drang over this seemingly never ending health care debate has damaged my own health.  When the storm first broke about health care reform, I actually understood the breadth of ideas.  With the wrangling, horse trading, giving up long held tenets of the Democratic party (see Stupak amendment)  to get to this stage of the debate – I not only am sick over the debate – but sick and tired of the politics and utter bullshit.

Between the media insanity over Sarah Palin’s book tour (which is reminiscent of the coverage of Michael Jackson’s death) to the media coverage of health care – I am afraid I have developed a pre-existing condition called chronic nausea.  Every opinion column is now devoted to the Palin death march book tour and her importance or lack thereof.  Even Frank Rich chimes in today.

It seems to me that Sarah Palin’s motto should be ‘Take the Money and (Not) Run.’ She is enjoying every second of the theater and the money she is raking in.  By the way – do her children ever go to school?

The vote to actually debate this morphed health care bill was settled down party lines last night (60-39 with Ohio’s George V. Voinovich (R-Ohio) missing the vote).  Can anyone tell me why we are even having a discussion with the Repugnants when it is clear that they are in lock-step as the party of ‘NO’ as an agenda?

Sadly, we have many more weeks of all-Sarah/all-healthcare before we can turn to the most important things for the re-election Democrats in 2010 – the economy and jobs.  If the Dems can figure out how to make those employment figures look better, the free-floating rage across the land (or at least the land that the media is covering) will abate.  It was true then and it is true now – ‘it’s the economy, stupid’.

One more thing – how about getting out of Afghanistan, Mr. President?

When times get tough – there is nothing like a fun video to ease the pain. My pal, Mary has  made a video about an adorable little orangutan.

Who cares about Sarah Palin, I’ll take the orangutan any day!
