Betsy McCaughey is the wackaloon who invented the idea that the Obama Health Care Plan would involve killing off all the old people. John Stewart and she spent a little time with a draft of the plan, going over details. Below the fold. (This video will probably start automatically) Continue reading John Stewart pwns Betsy McCaughey→
Last night on a conference call she asked for radical action on a state by state basis, implying that states who do not want health care reform should take arms against the government. Or something like that.

Mehta’s blog post in which he exposed Higgins’ irresponsible and absurd claims has yielded a singularly incoherent babbling response. Is there any doubt that The Illinois Family In Italics Institute should be deeply embarrassed?

Along with my special guest, Congressman Michael Burgess, who practiced medicine before coming to Congress and who sits on one of the House committees with jurisdiction over the health care reform legislation, we’ll be discussing the proposals that are making their way through Congress and hearing your thoughts on this important issue. I hope you’ll join us for this critical discussion.
Feminist Majority Foundation reports on a positive development in a case of true over the top sicko right wing Republican offensive crapola. A law had been passed in the somewhat backwards state of Oklahoma requiring that prior to an abortion, the woman be subjected to a subjective description of her embryo/fetus by a doctor, based on an ultrasound.
Unfortunately, the law was struck down for good legal reasons but for irrelevant social reasons. Similar to a bill passed here in Minnesota a few years ago allowing any bozo to carry a gun any time and anywhere, this bill had multiple provisions, which is against the constitution in Oklahoma (and Minnesota). Most likely, the creepy ultrasound description law will be back, will be passed, and will not be so easy to get rid of in the future

If you want to remain my friend, step away from the cookie jar. Now.
