"Prostitutes in Copenhagen have reportedly
offered free sex to delegates at the Global Warming Summit. Though if you do sleep with a prostitute
at the Global Warming Summit, make sure to cap your emissions." -- Seth Meyers
Excerpt: I agree with Chris Bowers that in a lot of ways
the real story here is that the Senate leadership has underscored that
a 'reconciliation' path to a health care bill
is off the table. That means Lieberman has unlimited control over what
and no incentive to compromise, so it shouldn't
surprise anyone that he's being uncompromising...
If reconciliation could be revived, things might
look different. There's a good case for not doing this legislation through
reconciliation. The product that emerged from
the parliamentarian's wringer could be sub-optimal in various ways.
But the product that emerges from Lieberman's
wringer will also be sub-optimal. So given a viable threat of reconciliation,
it seems to me that both sides would have some
incentive to compromise.
I've been saying for years that we need a way to dump asshole Democrats.
If only we could get Obama to use some of that presidential power.

"I did not run for office to be helping out

Excerpt: This is striking: A new poll says one third of
Democrats say that they're 'less likely' to vote in 2010 if Congress
doesn't pass a public option, underscoring the
possibility that dropping the provision seriously risks dampening
the Dem base's enthusiasm...
Obviously, passions over the public option are
on full boil right now. Passage of a health care bill of some kind,
not to say the passage of time, could reduce
the impact that dropping the public option could have on Dem turnout
in the 2010 elections, particularly since theyíre
nearly a year away.
But these numbers are a reminder of just how dispirited
the Dem base is by the partyís inability to leverage
their comfortable majority in support of an agenda
built on core liberal priorities.

Excerpt: The White House is encouraging Harry Reid to
cut a deal with Sen. Backstabber, which would mean eliminating
the proposed Medicare expansion in the health
reform bill, according to an official close to the negotiations.
But Reid is described as so frustrated with Lieberman
that he is not ready to sacrifice a key element of the health care bill,
and first wants to see the CBO cost analysis
of the Medicare buy-in. The analysis is expected early this week.
"There is a weariness and a lot of frustration
that one person is holding up the will of 59 others," the official said.
ďThere is still too much anger and confusion
at Kissyface's reversal."
Lieberman threw health care reform into doubt
Sunday when he told Reid that he would filibuster the bill if it allowed
Americans ages 55 to 64 to purchase coverage
in Medicare. His comments on CBSís "Face the Nation" set off a series
of private meetings Sunday between the Senate
leadership and top White House aides, including Rahm Emanuel,
who encouraged Reid to cut the deal with Lieberman,
the official said. The White House declined to comment.
Obama should summon Sen Backatabber to the White House and ask him,
"Do you want to be real famous? Do you want
to be real famous for all the wrong reasons?"
He should tell Reid, "Get onboard or take the
blame. You'll be as popular as Chris Brown if you're the bastard who kills health care
for 45 million people. You want that, asshole?"

"Obama said, 'my job is to protect the American
people from threats.' Of course, everybody agreees, but he has not defined what the threats from
Afghanistan are...He did not define them at any point. Where are the threats coming from? The Taliban?
The 100 al-Qaeda left in Afghanistan? And remember, in 2002, he said, 'I'm not against
all wars, I'm against a dumb war.' Right now, Afghanistan is the gold standard
of a dumb war -- immoral and unnecessary." -- Arianna Huffington - who kinda has
a point, Link
I can't tell you what the Afghan threat is - anybody know?
And if you say "The Taliban" why aren't we chasing them into Pakistan?

Excerpt: I love my iPhone. I just wish it were matched
with Verizon Wireless, the carrier that actually works.
Consumer Reports has just released its annual
survey of cellphone service, and its respondents collectively
agree with me about the rankings: AT&T occupies
the bottom and Verizon, the top.
My sense of Verizonís superiority is confirmed
every time I see a "thereís a map for that" Verizon commercial,
graphically showing how far more extensive Verizonís
3G network coverage is in less populated areas. And it is
reinforced when AT&T executives publicly
confess that the companyís wireless service in New York and
San Francisco was ďbelow our standards.Ē
Irony: I bought my damn iPhone after my Sprint phone couldn't get a signal
in goddam Times Square
When I set about looking for independent data,
however, to confirm the superiority of Verizonís network,
I was astonished to discover that I had managed
to get things exactly wrong. Despite the well-publicized
problems in New York and San Francisco, AT&T
seems to have the superior network nationwide.
Then why does my iPhone work about half the time
in large crowds?

"Typical GOP solution. Take MORE from the poor

Excerpt: The most glaring and consequential unforced error
came in how Obama framed the health-care reform debate.
The mantra of 'bending the cost curve' was tailor-made
for conservative and moderate intellectuals who preach
the gospel of entitlement reform. If passing
health-care reform were fundamentally about winning over the think tanks,
the green-eyeshade approach might have made sense.
But of course the real goal was to overcome the fear of the large
majority of Americans who are insured and who
deeply, desperately, and sometimes irrationally oppose anything that
would change the status quo...
It is the unforced errors that raise the question
of whether Hillary Clinton was right back in 2008 when she argued that
the White House was no place for 'on-the-job
training.' At the time, Clinton's stinging attacks on Obama's relative
the insurgent candidate's supporters, who damned the Clinton machine for
savage bullying. Yet there was an obvious
truth behind Clinton's rhetoric.
