All of these Senators are Arlen Specter.
Progressives should remember well the lessons we have learned through Arlen Specter in the last few months.
That lesson seems to be.
A. Politicians care about nothing more than staying in power and gaining power.
B. A Politician that fears losing their seat will do anything to prevent it.
C. If they don’t fear you, they will not respect you.
D. Bi-Partisanship = Cow Pie
Specter, the agile old lizard that he is, seems to only have one skill, which is judging the wind in Washington. Many other Senators do not have this skill. There careers will be much shorter than his because of it.
These Senators do not realize, or do not care, that average Americans are fucking dying out there do to lack of health care coverage, whether it is preventative or emergency.
And now they are compromising with “NO!”
Well, good Senator, there is a phrase I would like to reacquaint you with.
“If you fuck with the bull, you get the horns.”
Now, on to the show.
