The Latest Republican Derriere Shot

You would think that by now the Republicans would have learned to sling their six-shooters in a different place, to prevent all their self-inflicted wounds in their rear ends. The latest in their urge to leave no cowflop unturned in their numerous fraudulent attempts to prevent any improvement of health care in the U.S. is being reported today by none other than the Washington Post, a paper that I think of as usually leaning their way.

The article is titled "RNC Uses New Scare Tactic on Reform," and the first paragraph reads:

The Republican National Committee suggested in a recent fundraising appeal that Democrats might use an overhaul of the health-care system to deny medical treatment to Republicans.

This is a "scare?"

Can't you just expect that it's going to strain every charitable bone in a true Democrat's body to refrain from thinking (and doing worse), to the effect of, "Hmm! Maybe that wouldn't be all bad"?

It would involve following Republicans deeper into the realm of the Ridiculous than the Democrats would normally want to go, but the temptation would still be there.
