Sometimes The Truth Is Funny

Luckovich in the AJC.

Funny how Romney has spent the last year saying how terrible the HCR bill is when it pretty well mirrors the plan he supported and signed in Taxachuesetts. Of course no member of the Republic Party can say anything good about anything put forward by Democrats even if it was their idea in the first place.

Just heard a good line on one of the cable news channels this morning. "Libertarians are Republicans that are embarrassed to call themselves Republicans." This strikes me as being very true. If the Libertarians were true libertarians they wouldn't always line up on the Right. They would take some from column 1 and some from column 2 and get egg roll. Instead they are constantly in the Right hand column.

  1. You're so right about both points. The hypocrisy on the health insurance reform is mind boggling.

    The "libertarians" I know all vote for Republicans in the end because they say that otherwise their vote would be wasted. Uh huh. They crack me up - they seem like the adolescent equivalent in politics. They want all the rights and freedoms of society, but none of the responsibilities of belonging to one.
