Maybe it's because I spent the day fighting with a lazy, mendacious, over-charging punk of a plumber, but this screed by Dan Riehl on the "nuclear option" for healthcare sounds better to me than a choir singing the sweetest of lullabies.
"Reconcile this, you distasteful, malevolent little quisling punk - a timely reminder of some words I never thought would have such import during my lifetime.
'When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.'
The cause is well known and it is just. When the alleged leader of a democratic republic places his own wishes so above those of the complete body politic, he is no longer worthy of the title, leader, no matter what office he might occupy."
Sing it, Dan.
