Just a couple of questions...

On Universal Health Care...over at AD's place, one commenter seemed to be making the argument that once Barack Alan Jackson Obama got universal health care in place, Joe the Plumber's healthcare costs were going to be lower. That could very well be...but won't his taxes be higher once he's paying for everyone else's healthcare in addition to his own? And we haven't even factored in the potential cost increases due to abuse of the system when the government makes health care "free" to everyone. As the old saying goes, there ain't no such thing as a free lunch...and I get the feeling that Barack Cody Canada Obama's free healthcare lunch is going to cost the working people he says he wants to give a break a hell of a lot more than he's letting on, if the example set in Canada is anywhere near accurate.
From everything I've seen about Sarah Palin's SNL appearance, it was by and large a success...but apparently the Obama Kool-Aid drinkers didn't think so, with one saying, "she should have taken her cue cards and gone home after the first segment...she really didn't know they were laughing at her and not with her." I'm thinking she knew damn well they were laughing at her, but she wanted to be a good sport about it all. But she couldn't have won with them either way, because even if she did say, "fuck all you Hollywood elitist motherfuckers," and shot them the bird as she walked out, you know damn good and well the Obama Kool-Aid drinkers would have pointed to her and called her thin-skinned and unable to take any kind of criticism. Said Kool-Aid drinker also observed that perhaps Sarahcuda could have been moose hunting as the sports reporter on the Weekend Update. And I'm like, why? So they could call her a bitter gun-clinging Jesus freak and laughed at her some more?
