I don't get into spitting contests with PTSD victims. Instead, and I recommend this, one needs to have compassion for those afflicted by that.

President Obama's Obamacare Fix

Chicken Little-THE SKY IS FALLING!!!

here's what really happened yesterday. Obama made a short speech and then took questions. It wasn't the high point of his presidency, but virtually no one outside the Beltway thought it was a disaster. It was just another forgettable presidential press conference. The Obamacare website is in deep trouble, but the evidence is pretty clear that it really is getting better, and will continue to get better. Lots of people are suffering from rate shock, but not as many people as Republicans and the press would have you believe. It's early days, and signups will continue to improve as we get closer to the deadline. Insurers are upset with Obama's new fix, but they'll calm down. Their denunciations yesterday were pretty pro forma.

This is a bleak moment for Obama, but it's not his Iraq or even his Katrina. Within a few months everything will settle down. Republicans have an obvious political motive for stoking panic, but the rest of us should be a little smarter about buying into it. OK?

Wow! Even Susan Combs criticizes the Republican party!

The top elected woman in Texas, Comptroller Susan Combs, criticized the GOP’s obsession with restricting women’s health and bodies in an interview with the Washington Times on Wednesday. Slamming her party for its failure to get past legislating women “south of the waistline,” Combs argued Republicans come across as not caring about their other interests…. “Tell me that you give a flip about women’s interests,” she said. “If all you want to talk about is my biology, ‘Gee what happened to my brain?’ That is my point. It is not all south of the waistline.”….

I'm already really sick of seeing Christmas ads. First, the stuff started arriving in the stores in October even before Halloween. Last night we were watching a game show and the background was all decked out with ornaments and trees and gifts and such, plus the commercial was all about how people would be able to shop ON THANKSGIVING. Clearly this holiday needs to be renamed to The Shopping Holiday instead of having any other meaning.
