If one clings fervently to a particular ideology, we call them zealots. Those who go too far are called a terrorist. In the same way some Muslims wage their jihad, or “holy war” against America, so too does the current administration wage its own health care jihad against the American people.
Obama spent a great deal of time “explaining” the legislative nonsense that came out of the progressive liberal Democrats’ closets during his State of the Union address and all but demanded: “Do not walk away from reform. Not now. Not when we are so close.”
His front man, Robert Gibbs, said: “We’re still inside the five-yard line. We’re one vote away in the House of Representatives from making health care a reality. Health care reform a reality.”
And, of course, the Speaker of the Nuthouse talks about it in the squirreliest terms of all: “We go through the gate. If the gate’s closed, we’ll go over the fence. If the fence is too high we’ll pole-vault in. If that doesn’t work, we’ll parachute in but we’re going to get health care reform passed for the American people.”
No matter that poll after poll after poll shows the average American citizen backing further and further away from anything proposed about health care reform in the House or Senate and a solid majority now wish they’d drop the idea altogether; these progressive liberal zealots simply cannot shake free of their fanatical need to impose their will. While I cannot fathom this kind of insanity, I cannot help but wonder if there is perhaps a Divine hand at work keeping Gitmo from closing, for surely these people need to be locked away.
