Celebrate Health Care Reform Week

Posted By on Fri, Mar 26, 2010 at 11:47 AM

This is the week health care reform finally became law. True, it doesn’t include everything I would have liked to see in it (What, no internment camps for radio hosts with Oxycontin monkeys on their backs? Just kidding.), but it’s a great start.

Progressives are in a celebratory mood, as much for seeing the president they worked hard to elect finally finding his groove as for the reform bill itself. There have been toasts and jokes aplenty this week, including the guy who said he had called his Tea Partyin’ aunt to tell her he’d been appointed to her death panel. And yes, the right-wing loonies are getting dangerous (see more about that in our next full column), but I admit it’s been kinda fun watching the anti-reform crowd pitch its collective fit like a million bawling babies with dirty diapers.

Here is a video that’s been making its way around the Internet the past few days. It shows the stark contrast between the progressive attitudes and forward thinking that got Pres. Health Care elected, and the stale, bitter ass-backwardness of what passes for thought on the right these days. Enjoy, and have a great weekend.
