10. Strange Bedfellows Indeed
By Kevin Drum
| Wed Dec. 23, 2009 3:52 PM PST
... Jane Hamsher has decided that a healthcare bill that provides a trillion dollars worth of benefit to low and middle income workers is so odious ... that it deserves a scorched earth campaign against the Obama White House in partnership with Grover Norquist ... What's next? A joint Twitter campaign with Sarah Palin? ... A joint lawsuit with Orly Taitz?
