Observant and often cranky Grandmas Margaret and Helen take  Don’t-O-crat Evan Bayh to the woodshed for a good old fashioned thrashing, and you're invited.  Helen wants to know whats up with Don't-Ocrats kissing the behinds of the Repub-li-cant loser party.  Do the blue dogs like Bayh do this because its too hard for the Republicants to lick their own wounds, considering the location.  Helen asks Evan Bayh is ok with having the government pay for HIS health care, but the government just can't afford it for the rest of us.  She wants to know why we can't afford to improve education considering we are lagging behind so many other countries. Let'er rip, Helen!

Bye Bye Evan Bayh  Posted by: Helen Philpot | March 26, 2009

For several weeks now, we have watched as one idiot Republican spokesman after another has stepped up to the microphone and whined endlessly about how much they don’t like anything or anyone.  It’s been embarrassing to say the least.  I guess when you’ve been kicked in the ass, it’s difficult to lick your wounds.   And honestly, watching Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh lick their wounds is more than my stomach can handle.

But now we have a small group of Democrats who have decided to kiss those same kicked asses.  They want to stop the President’s  agenda. Really?  We barely survived 8 years of the Bush/Cheney administration and now we have the opportunity to correct those mistakes and take the country in a new direction.  So what could these Don’t-0-crats be thinking?

From what I can tell, the Obama agenda emphasizes healthcare, education and energy.  I just don’t understand how anyone can argue those priorities.  Let’s take them one at a time.

Healthcare.  The argument for fixing healthcare is that it is too expensive and too many people don’t have insurance.  Seems pretty clear to me.  The argument against it would be that it is too expensive to fix so poor families including children should just suffer and die needlessly.  Hmmm. If anyone knows Senator Evan Bayh, can you ask him if he enjoys the government sponsored health insurance plan he gets as a Senator?
