If Republican gall were congealable, we could dam the Caribbean.
And it’s still not over. To say the GOP is not taking this defeat lying down is like saying freeze-dried mustard clumps make for substandard Q-Tips. Within 10 minutes of the president signing the bill, a deluge of 14 state legislatures began to challenge the bill’s constitutionality.
And you wonder why getting anything done in this country is like trying to shovel sand with a pitchfork.
Republicans vowed to go down swinging, and they’re probably not talking about hiking the Appalachian Trail with each other’s wives.
Let’s be frank: not a single member of the minority voted for the health care bill. Not one. That’s not a political party, that’s the Borg. “RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.” The reanimated Halloween pumpkin that is Sen. Mitch McConnell remains determined to continue the construction of his cement wall of obstructionism turning “The Party of No” into “The Party of Hell No,” veering dangerously close to “The Party of Screw You!”
People may mock Obama for his Messianic glaze, but you got to relish this resurrection of health care which makes Lazarus risen look like a third-grade magician’s trick.
Focus a telescope and you can make out the scuff marks on the bill’s knees from where it climbed out of the morgue drawer.
Maybe now we should try handing the president seven loaves and seven fishes and see what he does with that.
Or better yet, seven loaves and seven sausages.
