Wednesday Stuff

Hey, wasn’t today supposed to be the day the Repugs take their “victory lap” over passing the repeal of the Obama “job killing” (and yes, the moratorium in the wake of the Tucson tragedy on that inflammatory and utterly incorrect language lasted all of one day) health care bill? Wow, their attitude instead seemed to be something along the lines of “nothing to see here, move along.”

Can’t say I’m a bit surprised (Rachel Maddow had a nice feature on this tonight – I’ll look for the video).

In the meantime, it looks like at least two Dems found their voice on this issue (would that others besides George Miller and Patrick Murphy had done so before the November elections, and yes, Mikey The Beloved voted for repeal also).

Here is a video of Dem U.S. House Rep Joe Crowley of New York…

…and here is Miller…

…and I generally try to avoid Sarah you-know-who, but I thought this was funny from Stephen Colbert (hat tip for all three videos to Daily Kos)…

…and after watching the 112th for a few days, I can guess who’s in control, and it sure ain’t us.
