How To Make Friends And Influence People

The Democratic Way

WASHINGTON (AP) – A key House liberal suggested Thursday that party moderates who’ve pushed for changes in health care legislation are “brain dead” and out for insurance company campaign donations.

Moderate Blue Dog Democrats “just want to cause trouble,” said Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif., who heads the health subcommittee on the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee.

“They’re for the most part, I hate to say, brain dead, but they’re just looking to raise money from insurance companies and promote a right-wing agenda that is not really very useful in this whole process,” Stark told reporters on a conference call.

    Good job Petey, that’ll sway them to your side.

    This must be bipartisanship, Obama style.

    Shut Up, he explained.

    “Brain dead” meaning he wants to pull the plug on them?

    Gah, I am so sick of the rhetoric coming out of this. “If you disagree, it can’t possibly be on principled terms. No, you are wrong, evil, or stupid.”

    These guys just drip with class and diplomacy, don’t they? What a great way to win friends and allies when the libs need every one they can get.

    One more thing. I was clicking through Instapundit a couple days ago and here’s this story about Big O making a conference call to 1,000 rabbis to pitch his health plan. One rabbi twittered throughout.

    The rabbi got mad when O said something to the effect that with help from them and God, the bill will pass. But best of all was the music the White House played while hundreds of rabbis were on hold while the call was being completed. Yessir, it was Deutchland Uber Alles.
