Looks like the left-o-sphere is not happy with Rockin' Barry O. Join the crowd and say something disrespectful over at Politico. Ridicule is easy!
We're in a state of shock over here at the secret underground Libertarian Command Center (LCC) at the news that Jon Stewart has outed Rockin" Barry O as a member of the Jedi Order. We've got a couple Jedi Knights on staff and a herd of Padawan learners that assure the rest of us that they've never seen him at any of the regular meetings or the conventions. Maybe he was wearing that Joker facepaint as a cover. Jon couldn't be mistaken, could he?
You know you've stepped in it when your personal cheer leading staff starts dissing you and implying that you don't have sufficient intestinal fortitude or testicularity to push the public option over the goal line. When guys and gals like the mighty Olbermann, Mr. "I know Nothing" Shultze and the fetching Rachel Maddow start crawling up your backside about selling out the public option, it's time to move the stepladder.
The question is, where the hell do you move it to? If this whole health care thingy was such a freakin' winner both our Republican and Democratic brothers would be all over it and clamoring for all the credit. That does not appear to be the case and it sure has been easy for a bunch of punkin' heads like us to orchestrate the nationwide town hall mini riots like Barney Frank's recent event where he disclosed that he spends a lot of time in conversation with his kitchen table. All you gotta do is say there's gonna be one and voila, instant agitated crowds complete with their own signs!
How will this thing play out? The giant Elect-O-Tron mainframe computer in the basement level predicts the whole thing will be a wash. No public option, no health care co-opts, mandatory insurance for people who don't need it, no insurance for people who do and a booming organ donor business supplying Chinese and Indian millionaires with fresh kidneys, livers and other tasty bits.
