Liberal blogger Matt Yglesias charges that Republicans are “hoping that they can stall long enough for Robert Byrd to die” in order to derail Democrats’ sweeping health care plans.
The fact is that Senator Byrd has lacked the mental and physical capacity to perform his duties for several years, perhaps a decade or longer. The man is a national disgrace for, while he undoubtedly loves serving his country in his way, he’s allowed pride and agenda to take the place of good sense, which would have had him resign long since.
Far be it from me to wish ill on Senator Byrd. It is nevertheless true that the fiasco Democrats are about to foist on American taxpayers demands opposition from every quarter, with all possible vigor, the whiny protests from liberals notwithstanding. The fact of the matter is that we don’t want Robert Byrd to die – we just want the left-wing do-gooders to leave us alone. That’s all and it doesn’t seem too much to ask, frankly.
Even CNN admits that more Americans want to see DemCare derailed than want to see it passed. Take a hint, kids, and maybe we’ll let you stay in office.
