I wonder whether the PC police have retired now that Obama is President. I'm going to find out soon after posting this.
The Briar Patch Strategy
I am fascinated by the fact that Obama might not just be the US President who signs a bill guaranteeing universal health insurance, but that he has managed to get the health insurance industry to beg him for universality.
I suspect he justed wanted to avoid the scary word "mandate" promise voter/consumers only new options and nice things and a chance to free ride and stake out a position slightly to the right of John Edwards (remember him ?).
But I really really want to believe that he had it all planned. That in arguing against the mandate he is saying "Please please don't throw me in the briar patch."
OK so now we see if uncle Remus tar baby stories are PC now. Since I have about 3 readers I might have to wait a while until the PC police person shows up (and you know I have someone particular in mind).
