What you see there is a screenshot of the MSNBC poll, in case … well, in case it’s not there for much longer. As of my contribution to the “angry” column in the wee hours of this morning there were 732,569 votes, of which nearly a half-million votes were also in that “angry” column. These folks live in a bubble, and absent a link on Drudge or anything like that, such a turnout must be a shock to their system.
My favorite comment on the whole thing came from an acquaintance of mine, who summed things up nicely:
Let me get this straight……we’ve passed a health care plan written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn’t read it but exempts themselves from it, to be signed by a president that also hasn’t read it and who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that’s broke.
What the hell could possibly go wrong????
Yep. That about sums it up for me. Meanwhile the talking points for the left portend that the apparent public opposition isn’t really public opposition at all, but is rather a GOP fabrication and the manifestation of an angered minority. Oh, I don’t think so.
And, in the words of Mike Pence, a minority in Congress plus the American people equals a majority. Those Democrats are in for an awakening in November. Now, we just have to find a way to stop this renewed congressional majority from passing comprehensive immigration reform–read: amnesty for illegals–and cap-and-trade.
