Quote of the Day

"Let me answer why I think Americans just instinctively understand that this law shouldn't go forward. It's because they realize...that what's at stake here is our last shred of freedom."—Senator Ron Johnson (R-Eeally?!), on why the Supreme Court, currently debating the constitutionality of the President's healthcare reform legislation, should rule in favor of "freedom."

I can't even imagine what it's like to be so undilutedly privileged that you earnestly believe socialized medicine stands to eradicate "our last shred of freedom."
