Egad. The Rocky Horror Picture Show that our government has become, continues to appall. First ObamaCare is dead because of the Brown election, then it’s not dead, and then it is truly dead, stick a fork in it, and then :
Pelosi didn’t say whether the final bill will be the sweeping overhaul sought by President Barack Obama, or smaller-scale legislation that accomplishes only some of his goals. Democrats were on the verge of passing far-reaching legislation, but the loss of a Massachusetts Senate seat has cost them the 60-vote majority needed to deliver.
In case you didn’t get the “The Thing That Wouldn’t Leave” reference, (Gosh this dates me) – it’s a classic skit from the original SNL:
John Belushi played the slobby, inconsiderate house guest of nice couple Jane Curtain and Bill Murray. All the rest of the guests had gone home, it’s past midnight, and Belushi won’t stop flipping channels, and raiding their fridge.
But will the thing take a hint, and leave?
Ace says update II was a false alarm.
