#HCRSummit Obama Nursery Rhyme

The tall, good looking, wear a nice suit, run a nice roundtable meeting guy had a moment or two where he looked very petulant today. Not all Presidential even though he was clearly in charge. Fascinating.

Barry Barry quite contrary
Can you make HealthCare grow?
With shifting goals
And shrinking polls
And pretty BlueDawgs all in a row.

#HCRSummit = The Pompous Pomposity of Pompousness

This political theater is so bad it has me pining for the days of Bill Clinton. Someone please talk me down off the ledge.

What this Health Care Reform Summit needs is a dose of Daniel Hannan. Remember him? Conservatives in Congress could use some of his spine.

“This monstrosity, sir, is an warranted grab of 1/6 of the US economy by the devalued President of a devalued Government.”

Something like that would’ve been nice to clear the air, then we might’ve gotten some REAL bipartisan food fighting. Though I did think for a second that John McCain was gonna chuck some chow at BHO. He was looking almost like Nikita Krushschev at the UN. Only if he’d taken off his shoe and pounded it on the table.

Oh well…

Untold Big Story About Bayh #InSen Retirement

Within 15 minutes of the Evan Bayh retirement story breaking, Harold Ford was seen googling “Indianapolis Subway System” on his laptop by undercover operatives from Media Mutters.

I had expected @DustyTrice to have broken this story on HuffPost by now…

Dusty Trice is a Twitter Weenie

I’ve never met Dusty Trice (@DustyTrice) and I guess I probably never will.

Dusty’s twitter bio line sez: Democratic Political Consultant & New Media Junkie. Worked: Franken, DNC. Featured On: Politico, Gawker, Wonkette, HuffPost, Boing Boing, Olbermann & Maddow!

My Beef You Ask?

Well, Dusty followed @GovKaineBrow who then followed back and who was then subsequently blocked by same New Media Junkie who had just followed me 20 minutes earlier. I had even rt’ed his cool post about Tom at MySpace before he blocked me. WTF?

Make up your mind, dude.

ObamaCare & Our Family Snow Day Cost-Benefit Analysis

Across Virginia and much of the country, students will get a basic Economic lesson in the form of Make-Up Snow Days.  There is no Free Lunch.  For every Benefit there is a Cost. 

My Mini-Me is grappling with the abstract concept of trade-offs with new found clarity.  Last week’s snow cancelled a scheduled sleep-over birthday party at Brendan’s.  A martial arts competition now conflicts with the rescheduled party.  “Tough call,” said Pops, “but it’s your call and you gotta make it.”

SNOW DAYS:  But worse than a Karate-Party trade-off was his realization that extra days might be added to the end of the school year.  Up to that point, Lil Brow thought Snow Days were F-R-E-E.

PIVOT:  Expecting ObamaCare to expand coverage, reduce costs and improve outcomes is kinda like believing every day can be a Snow Day.

Brendan’s party won out.

BHO Bears Full Burden of Kennedy Legacy Now

Like the tall, thin, good looking, nice suit, give a good speech guy did not have enough on his plate already.

The upcoming retirement of Patrick Kennedy in Rhode Island leaves BHO as the last remaining Kennedy in elected office.

Who’da thunk?  Demon Sheep of Hyannisport are to blame.  More likely it’s the likely prospect of Patrick getting punked by his contstituents in November.  Kennedy’s 56% negatives spell D-O-O-M.

Post Mortem: Buddy Cianci is a shoe-in for Kennedy’s open seat. No one beats the Garlic Mountain — and lives to talk about it.
