Quote of the Day

Jonathan Chait, on the right-wing reaction to health care:

In the right-wing mind, the world we live in at any given moment can be described as the free market, the American way of life, perhaps not a perfect world but a cherished and fundamentally free one. The next advance of liberalism will always bring socialism, tyranny, a crushing burden on industry, and other horrors. The previous liberal advances that they or their predecessors greeted with such hysteria are eventually incorporated into the landscape of the free American way of life.

No, it’s not the best bill they could’ve gotten, and yes, it shows just how screwed up our political process is. But I’m delighted that health care is going to pass.
