Jon Stewart has a point about Massachusetts

If this lady loses, the health care reform bill that the beloved late
senator considered his legacy, will die. And the reason it will die… is
because if Coakley loses, Democrats will only have an 18 vote majority in
the Senate, which is more than George W. Bush ever had in the Senate when
did whatever the fuck he wanted to.

Sigh. Thanks, Mr Jender.

  1. The best line from that monologue: “It’s not that the Democrats are playing checkers and the Republicans are playing chess. It’s that the Republicans are playing chess and the Democrats are in the nurse’s office because, once again, they glued their balls to their thighs.”

    It’s just wrong for Stewart to suggest that Bush got Congress to do “whatever the fuck he wanted”, though. Social Security? Clear Skies Initiative? McCain Amendment? The inability to break the Democratic filibuster on the Patriot Act reauthorization? The unimpressive rate of appointee confirmations? W. had his fair share of legislative defeats, including prior to the 2006 midterm elections.

  2. Seriously, what’s wrong with the Democrats? The Massachusetts Senate win by a Republican is a referendum on the President and the Health Care?! Jeez! Stewart is right. The Democratic leaders have turned into whiners.
