1. I can dig it

Republican proposal after conservative brain fart adopted as policy because "it's the best we could do." Now for the big surprise: The Republicans think their own proposals are too liberal and socialistic! Charlie Brown misses the football by a country mile while Lucy laughs. But then we get scolded and prissily informed that we need to support the president and congressional Democrats for their feeble efforts, because they got rolled so badly.

However, on the subject of the PPACA and its constitutional review by the Supremes, I think it's far better to have it ruled constitutional than not. What I worry about is a colossal game of judicial "Button, button, who's got the button?" in which the Supremes say the PPACA is both constitutional and unconstitutional, but they don't have the time, patience or thoroughness to designate what's what. So Congress is left with an unconstitutional bill, and they get to pass another law, crossing their legislative fingers, and waiting to see what the Court will rule this time. Or, Congress just gives up in disgust and the whole magilla just goes down the rathole for another generation.
