Chris Dodd Diagnosed with Early-Stage Prostate Cancer; Immediately Goes on TV to... Sell ObamaCare
Bonus: Andrea Mitchell Says That People With Insurance Coverage, Who Are Skeptical of "Change," "May Not Know What's Good for Them"

Never let a crisis go to waste.

I have no link as it apparently just happened on tv, but AHFF Geoff tells me it's so, and I believe him.

Andrea Mitchell Beclowns Herself Anew: If you, unlike the President and his juicy-mouthed supporters, are actually capable of math, and realize that we cannot pay for more to have pricey insurance without some combination of direct taxes and indirect taxes achieved in a covert way through rationing or blowing up the deficit -- and of course all three will happpen; it's merely a question of which is emphasized -- then you "may just not know what's good for [you]," according to straight-down-the-middle non-partisan Andrea Mitchell.

ANDREA MITCHELL: You've got 47% of the people in our NBC/Wall Street Journal opinion poll who have health insurance who don't like what the president is doing. The problem he's got -- 47% of the people who've got coverage don't want change. They don't like what they're hearing. Now, they may not know what's good for them, but the problem is that he always knew he was going to have to persuade people with insurance, that's the largest number, not the people without insurance, for expanded coverage. So they've got a real problem.

Tucked in there at the end is a sweet quote from Chrissy Matthews, shocked and surprised that a veteran cop could possibly handle a press conference with the media. (Surely no cops have ever had need to speak to a group of reporters before.) Shocked that the retarded prole was able to field questions and give cogent answers, Matthews observed:

CHRIS MATTHEWS: I have to tell you: well I feel like we're watching "Britain's Got Talent," here. We'll be right back with Mark Whitaker and Roger Simon here on the Politics Fix. We've got our Susan Boyle here.

The media are pretty certain that no one but they can write sentences and ask questions and appear on camera, eh? No wonder they have such high opinions of themselves. They think they're blessed with some kind of superpowers, nearly a separate species, Homo media, from the rest of us.


Thanks to EddieBear and AHFF Geoff.
