Question of the Day
The DGH Question of the Day: "Is Dave Sirota an idiot or just a garden-variety demotard shill?"
Over at Obot Left - Sirota quotes Rhamses I as saying that passing the Health Insurace Give-Away bill would be as beneficial to the DP as passing NAFTA was back during the Golden Clinton Years of Peace and Prosperity, 1994. Sirota claims to be flabbergasted at such a remark, since he's of the opinion that that very thing was responsible for the D's poor congressional showing that year.
Possibly it doesn't occur to Sirota that the D's fund raising increased 30% after they shivved the people with NAFTA, and that's what Rhamses was talking about - anticipating a big ol' Clintonian-style windfall from big pharma and the health insurance corporations. Possibly Sirota doesn't understand that DP elites like Rahm don't actually give a fart in a hurricane about their "base" (ie: jellyfish pwogwessives and their access blogger minders), "democratic values" (whatever that's supposed to be) or winning elections - a fact that has been abundantly obvious for a couple of fucking decades now.
Or, possibly, Sirota's just another lame DP flack with delusions of Beltway grandeur. Your guess is as good as mine.
