Universal health care is... terrorism?!

Left: Is Rep. Roy Blunt of Missouri really Batman's adversary, The Joker, in disguise?

Universal healthcare is terrorism? That's the latest Fox News talking point.

I just have one question to ask Fox News at this point. As you probably know, Israel hates terrorism. Hates it with a passion. They do everything they can to stamp out terrorism with every asset and resource that they have.

And Israel has universal healthcare.

So, Fox News: Are you saying that Israel's government is committing terrorism against the Israeli people?

Meanwhile, Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) and Roy Blunt (R-MO) say that Medicare is evil and should be eliminated. I heartilly recommend that the GOP run on this platform in the 2010 elections. Running on a platform to eliminate LBJ's socialized government healthcare will be, like, just SO much a win for the Goopers. Medicare is the second-most-popular government program *ever* (behind only Social Security), and nothing will elect Democrats better than the Goopers running against Medicare. Permanent Democratic majority, woot!

  1. WOW. We must all be terrorists up here also. Who knew?

  2. Actually, wasn't modern-era terrorism an invention of the pre-Isreal Zionists in the late 40's?

    You know - the first generation of leaders in Israel. Begin and Shamir were both involved in blowing up the King David Hotel in 1946, with 91 deaths.

    Ancillary to your point, I realize. We're probably better off with Quebecois terrorists
