It's odd that the Republicans would look to Louisiana once again to find someone to deliver a response to the president's congressional address. While Boustany wasn't as staggeringly stupid as Bobby Jindal, I can't imagine why anyone would choose a doctor who had been sued three times for malpractice to applaud the idea of reforming the medical malpractice laws. It seems like getting someone who'd been arrested for armed robbery a couple of times to talk about relaxing the laws about armed robbery. Maybe Boustany was framed, but it looks to me like all the Republicans got is Dumb Asses and Crooks.
Plenty of doctors complain about the cost of malpractice insurance, and for all I know they could be getting screwed by insurance companies like everyone else. I don't know and, frankly, I don't much care. I just think the Republicans might have found someone who hadn't been sued to make the speech especially when so many people have noticed the Republican double standard that we have an acronym for it: IOIYAR (It's Okay If You're A Republican).
I'll be glad when this Health Care bullshit is behind us. I just noticed there are conservative protesters in Washington DC with signs saying "Stop Socialism." I understand, intellectually, how such a thing is possible, but it's making my brain hurt to witness people so thoroughly manipulated by propaganda in this class war that they don't even know they are advocating their own destruction.
For now I have a fantasy: The Democrats really do use their majority to pass a good health care bill with a solid public option and the conservatives have to sit down and STFU (Shut The Fuck Up).
