In this week's episode of Red State Madness

Today I went to the doctor. While sitting in the waiting room, an older man entered and told the receptionist he wanted to set an appointment (Not sure why he didn't just call). The receptionist asked which insurance coverage he had, and he said Medicare. The receptionist told him they don't accept medicare.

"That's great! Thank you!" He said. "I'm not being sarcastic." He added. "I'm delighted. Good decision."

He left with a smile on his face. It made his day that he was denied health care.

When I look around, I think it's a miracle we win any elections. I can only dream of what it must be like to live in a Blue State.
