The Party of Malibu Barbie

For the GOP, apparently their party slogan should be changed to, "Math is hard!". First they released a budget without any numbers. Now, fresh off of that accomplishment, they release a four-page outline of their "health care reform plan" that, quote, "they didn’t know yet how much it would cost, how they would pay for it and how many of the nearly 50 million Americans without insurance would be covered by it."

Oh my. So they just slung something their preschooler scrawled before heading off to daycare out into the media? My only remaining question is, did it have crayon drawings in it?

  1. My Malibu Barbie us deeply offended by your blog title. You can notify your penguin-ass attorney that he will hear from the cute-ass Malibu Barbie attorney. Unless the matter is thwarted by Republican efforts at tort reform.

  2. I kinda guessed that it was going to be insubstantial when I heard it was only 4 pages.

    Isn't it fun to watch the Republican march into oblivion? And how that they have no clue about how ridiculous they look? Priceless.

    And I have to add my word verification is phishink. I await the puns.

  3. The real questions are:

    Did it have a nice cover?

    Did it have conservative fonts?

    Were there charts and/or graphs?

    It's all very well to have facts and figures, but nothing beats a good looking folder, solid fonts, and graphics in primary colors when it comes to policy proposals. Only geeks actually read what's in them.



Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
