Are Republicans Insane?

So the Republicans have taken to the House floor to vote to do away with National Health Care (Obamacare) for the 33rd time. It reminds me of the old line, "Insanity is when you keep doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result." If, in fact, Congressional Republicans ARE insane it sure would explain a lot of things. Maybe we should all pray for them?

3. Voting to overturn the National Health Care is not an insane act. It is an act of "political theater

". They know full well that the bill will not pass the Senate. It is their calculation that their chances to be elected will be improved by going on record as trying to do away with the bill.

5. It's cold and calculated and meant to play to the most ignorant people

and will probably work quite well for most of them.

The ignorant people only appear insane because of what they've been told through their AM radios that they repeat endlessly in an attempt to seem clever. They're not crazy, just bone idle when it comes to figuring out where the world around them is really at.

7. "RETARDED" is the word.

Mental retardation (MR) is a generalized disorder appearing before adulthood, characterized by significantly impaired cognitive functioning and deficits in two or more adaptive behaviors. It has historically been defined as an Intelligence Quotient score under 70. Once focused almost entirely on cognition, the definition now includes both a component relating to mental functioning and one relating to individuals' functional skills in their environment. As a result, a person with a below-average intelligence quotient (BAIQ) may not be considered mentally retarded. Syndromic mental retardation is intellectual deficits associated with other medical and behavioral signs and symptoms. Non-syndromic mental retardation refers to intellectual deficits that appear without other abnormalities.
