Bipartisanship is Overrated

Speaker Nancy Pelosi outlined a doubled-edged psychotic message for selling health care reform in August: one part pro-consumer and the second, attacking the health insurance industry. She said it with the same passion she took on George W. Bush’s Social Security privatization plans four years ago... by sounding just like George. Damn near quoted him.

“The glory days are coming to an end for the health insurance industry in our country,” Pelosi said.

I'm guessing that Mrs. Pelosi has never actually worked in the insurance industry? Anyone mind telling when the glory days were in that industry?

“This is about inoculating against misrepresentations and educating about what is in the bill,” she said. “We all want bipartisanship…but you’re either with the insurance companies or you’re for something new.”

So - to get it straight - you just said, you're either with us, or against us. Right? Am I reading that right Mr. Bush?

Eh, bipartisanship is overrated. It's not like the Democrats have complete control of the House and Senate and the White House... oh? Well, why are the Democrats are so keen on taking some Republicans to vote with them? Political blackmail? Or is it something more sinister?
