IA Govenor likens providing healthcare to providing alcohol at a wedding.

Just so we're all on the same page, giving poor people access to healthcare will most definitely lead to people getting a bit too giddy off their readily available mammograms and prostrate exams. Iowans will have to endure those formerly denied access to insulin and heart medication, who will all of a sudden become bffs with insured Iowans. Healthcare teetotalers will be bestowed with slurred, over-friendly "I love you man"s by low-income Iowans with access to doctors and medication. It'll just be icky and uncomfortable. Best to keep healthcare inaccessible.

13. You offer free booze at your wedding, and then EVERYONE wants to show up,

and have a good time. It turns into a party... shudder. Who would want to celebrate marriage?!?!?! ewww! Definitely not Iowa's Republican governor.

4. wouldn't that make Obama Jesus?

Jesus' first miracle was to convert water into wine at a wedding.

5. Both mandatory? Works for me, a dry wedding is hell on Earth.

So mission critical that Jesus made some wine from water when a wedding ran out in one story.

7. Interesting, Tim Pawlenty made the comparison first, and Branstad was quoting him.

Two, two, two assholes in one quote!

9. I don't know anything about this Governor but this sounds like he is being sarcastic

I think he is being sarcastic and we are too dense to recognize it. Then again I could just as easily be wrong...
