The Other Stupid Thing Alan Simpson Said..

Besides his "Greediest Generation" line, he also said this...

"You don't want to listen to the right and the left -- the extremes," he said. "You don't want to listen to Keith Olbermann and Rush Babe [Limbaugh] and Rachel Minnow [sic] or whatever that is, and Glenn Beck. They're entertainers. They couldn't govern their way out of a paper sack -- from the right or the left. But they get paid a lot of money from you and advertisers -- thirty, fifty million a year -- to work you over and get you juiced up with emotion, fear, guilt, and racism. Emotion, fear, guilt, and racism.

Frankly, that's a lot of Horse Hooey!

In no way, shape, form, or fever dream delusion are Rachel or Keith equal to Rush and Beck. As stupid as the "Greediest Generation" line was - this was even dead doornail dumber.

For starters Keith and Rachel don't LIE!

Heritage Health Care Repeal Hooey

In recent days I've been in a twitter debate with some Tea Party/#TCOT Conservatives, for once it's actually been rational and respectful. I find that debating someone that disagrees isn't pointless if you goal isn't just to prove them wrong, but to actually improve your own position and understanding. As a result I've learned a great deal.

Most of the discussion has revolved, naturally, around the Health Care Reform Law, and this happens to be something I know very well. Now I know it even better.
