Cutting Through The Crap

(Knee) Jerks


Here is an excellent distillation of the Republican response to Obama's good economic news:

You are making inadequate progress getting us out of the hole we dug for you despite our opposition to every program you propose.


Then there's this, which translates to "thank god and Republicans that the sunrise is over, so things can start to warm up."
It is no coincidence that the private sector is taking off while the government stimulus is winding down. ... which suggests that the pressure valve has been opened, and the years of pent-up activity that were suppressed by uncertainty over Obama’s policies is finally being released. Thank God for gridlock.

Yeah. And if it weren't for Rush Limbaugh, Sandra Fluke would never have gotten into law school.

Sid, in case you haven't seen this. A study was done on women's outcomes in ectopic pregnancies in Catholic vs non-Catholic hospitals. I don't have to tell you ectopics are non-viable and a risk to the mother's life. And yet...

The answer is clear: Catholic hospitals that receive public moneys must conform to good medical practices. And as for the earlier contraception coverage debate, in California by law that was all made law, challenged, and settled some time ago. And you never heard about it because it was simply the right thing to do.
