Popcorn time

Yum - I just love the smell of blue-on-blue violence in the morning.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spent half of Wednesday finalizing a deal with the Blue Dogs — and the other half quelling a brewing rebellion among progressives who think conservatives have hijacked health care reform.

And I wish you JOY! in your attempts at cat-herding, Speaker McBotox.
Two months ago, most of the 80-plus members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus signed a pledge that they would oppose any health care bill that didn’t contain a bona fide public option that would compete with private insurers.

In other words, a substantial plurality of the party that runs Washington these days won't sign-on to any "reform" that doesn't contain the private-health-insurance-killing "public" option.

But this isn't about the government taking-over healthcare, right Obambi?
