Fired Up About Health Care Reform

Some random commenter somewhere today wrote, “I may die of frustration if this bill doesn’t pass.’  I hear that.  I don’t want to die so I’ve been calling.  If you have five minutes and health care reform matters to you, please call.  Your representatives and senators need to know they have your support on this because it’s nice to be supportive and they’re sort of skittish right now.  Only time for one call?  Call your representative first–that’s where the action is right now.  Tell them you support reform and ask them to pass the senate bill.  If you do call your senators, tell them you support reform and ask them to pass the budget fixes through reconciliation.

Get fired up here.

And other stupid, ugly stuff from the way back machine.  These guys need some new material.

One of Andrew Sullivan’s readers  nails it.

Suffice to say that Republicans lecturing the country about fiscal responsibility, economic recovery, governing – or anything else, for that matter – would be like Mick Jagger lecturing Mother Teresa about excessive promiscuity.

Read the whole thing.

From Politico:

Speaking on his radio show Wednesday, Limbaugh said the earthquake has played into Obama’s hands, allowing the president to look “compassionate” and “humanitarian” while at the same time bolstering his standing in both the “light-skinned and dark-skinned black community in this country.”

Even the earthquakes love President Obama!  I always suspected they were socialist–that equal opportunity destruction and all.  Is it a rhetorical question to ask if Rush thinks before he opens his pie hole?

I love this photo gallery from TPM.  I don’t know what to say.  He just makes sense as President and his family brings a humanity and vitality to the White House it hasn’t seen in years.
