Blue Dogs

The Blue Dog Democrats (aka Assholes Whose Jobs Are More Important to Them Than Doing What's Right for the Country) are threatening to tank the healthcare bill. DDay's got the goods.

There is, of course, good reason to object to this bill, which is, as Lambert points out, the second-best option, and, as McClatchy reports, maybe even worse than that.

But those aren't the reasons the Blue Dogs are doing it. No one in Congress seems to give a flying fuck that a bill seeking to cautiously and carefully protect the same voraciously greedy corporations who caused the healthcare crisis in the first place is a shitty bill from the get-go. SNAFU, bitchez. Arf.
