How The Grinch Stole Christmas

The avarice never ends! "I want golf clubs. I want diamonds. I want a pony so I can ride it twice, get bored and sell it to make glue."

Why is it that I can so easily see a scene from the godfather (or any other mobster movie) where the wise guys meet with the “elected official” and work out a deal?

Okay "lover boy" (Lieberman means lover man in German), you do this for us, and we will make it all worthwhile for you, your family and every Lieberman generation there after. We know that you’ll piss “the people” off; and that you will never get reelected no matter how much money we through into your campaign (this time) but not to worry we'll take good care of you afterwards. Heck just with the extra money we’re going to make it’s no bother... So what do you say? Oh, and we’ll through in a guarantied life-long health insurance policy... Free of charge of course. No bother there either the taxpayers are going to be paying for it anyway. Hmm, so what do you think he’s going to do?

Like, let me see, Lieberman is from Connecticut, the health insurance industry capital of the world, and he is sitting at the epicenter of the biggest gain or loss that the health insurance industry has ever seen; a jackpot of thermonuclear proportions...hmm, let me think? Furthermore he’s not a democrat but rather a well know hypocrite (the other big party in Washington); and is not like he has not been telegraphing his punches; “HELLO!!” He ran against his own party ticket for God's sake!!

So what did we expect? The one “political flaw” that may be beginning to emerge with Obama is that he may be too politically naive because -unlike president Clinton- he expects for people (politicians) to have a conscience and to do the right think; and of course they don’t. Clinton was a better politician perhaps in the regard that he expected for politicians to do the wrong thing; and they did. Not sure if it is time to leave our collective consciences at home (hard call), but maybe we need to stop being naive and play hardball (while we can).

What's that stench? It's fantastic. It’s green eggs and ham… I guess. Now don’t get sick.

  1. There seems to be a genetic predisposition among those who are socially liberal that prevents them from playing hardball when it really counts. I can't just point a finger at Obama, because no man is an island. But I think back to the not-so-distant past in American history, and the response of the socially liberal to the truly important issues of the day. How were they able to push through an agenda? How were Roosevelt, Kennedy and (ugh)yes, even Johnson able to push through their pet legislation? Was the country in more dire straights? Maybe. There is no question that 1/3 of a nation unemployed and civil rights for all citizens ARE bigger issues than universal health care.

    Today, we are only facing 9%-12% unemployment, 41 of 50 states face bankruptcy, and our health care and education systems are at the bottom of the industrialized world. Hmm. OK. That is not the Great Depression or the March on Selma. But there is certainly significant suffering. As a country, we can do better.

  2. well said... and like Obama himself said at the novel price acceptance speech "the are some wars that are worth fighting"... and this one -on moral grounds alone-is one of them.
