Who's the Big Fat Idiot?

Here's another smackdown for you -- except this one's a double smackeroo:

For shame, for shame.
Why must a bill with allegedly so much merit be passed under cover of darkness? Frankly, I'm starting to dread the weekends. Because when the country's away, our Congress will play.
The whole voting process has grown so clandestine, even Democrats are now grumbling about its cloak-and-daggerness. Could it be, dare I say it, because the health care bill has so much public opposition?
Is it any wonder the Republicans want a full reading of the bill from the floor? For God's sake. Harry Reid won't even let the other senators see it.
Consider this blurb, from the Washington Examiner:
"I am in the dark almost as much as he is, and I am in the leadership." Durbin explained that during a Democratic caucus, Reid and the small group of senators involved in crafting the bill turned to their fellow Democrats and "basically stood and said, 'We are sorry, we can't tell you in detail what was involved.'"
"Isn't that a very unusual process?" asked McCain, noting that "we are discussing one-sixth of the gross national product; the bill before us has been a product of almost a year of sausage-making. Yet here we are at a position on December 12, with a proposal that none of us, except, I understand, one person, the Majority Leader, knows what the final parameters are, much less informing the American people. I don't get it."
"I think the senator is correct," Durbin answered, "saying most of us know the fundamentals, but we do not know the important details behind this." (emph. added)
What the hell! If sunlight is the best disinfectant, why are most Dems sprinting for the caves?
Oh, and while I've got the Tide box out on this Friday night, how about the 2010 Omnivore Omnibus Spending Bill which the Senate approved last weekend?
You know, the one that has over five thousand earmarks, the bill that pushes our total earmark spending for 2009 to eleven billion? Obama signed it into law this past Wednesday with nary a whimper.
Oh, those evil earmarks. Do you remember, back in the day, what Obama used to say?

P.S. In case you're planning on getting any dental crowns or botox, or gee, I don't know, a beer at the local pub, don't miss the Dental Maven's heads' up on all the new taxes this health "care" bill includes.
