As this leg of my travels draws to a close, I connect to the Internet just long enough to see that Nancy Pelosi scraped together just enough votes to ram an unread, 1900-page physician slavery bill through the House of Representatives during the night on Saturday.
History will not be kind to Pelosi or to Barack Obama. Their unpopular, immoral, impractical, and anti-American effort will fail in its stated goal whether or not it passes. Whether they are quickly forgotten or achieve lasting infamy as traitors depends only on whether it finally becomes law.
But neither the health of the American people, nor our gratitude, nor even perpetual political power suffice to explain the motives of the reptilian Pelosi. Even the last is too clean and innocent to explain her.
Nancy Pelosi is an egalitarian to the core, and the simple fact that some people in America can have good health, when others do not, or even that Americans generally have the best medical care in the world, rankles her, and not because there are some who lack medical care.
She does not simply feel that the good fortune of some people in the world is morally wrong; she hates America for this and intends to cure the problem once and for all, our actual health, our considered judgment, and her continued hold on power be damned. She's holding a dagger and sees a bare back.
Today: Corrected a typo.
