Health Care Debate Underway In Senate...Landrieu Completes Sale.

Mary Landrieu just finished her speech announcing she will vote yes to begin the debate. She did address the 100 million bribe to vote yes. She wanted to correct the record on that. She did not sell her vote for $100 million in aid for Louisiana...it's was 300 million dollars.

This reminds me of the old joke often attributed to Winston Churchill...

Churchill: Madam, would you sleep with me for five million pounds?

Socialite: My goodness, Mr. Churchill... Well, I suppose... we would have to discuss terms, of course...

Churchill: Would you sleep with me for five pounds?

Socialite: Mr. Churchill, what kind of woman do you think I am?!

Churchill: Madam, we've already established that. Now we are haggling about the price.

Now 300 million dollars in the scope of the bill isn't much but Mary wants you to know she ain't that cheap.

Glad we got that cleared up.

This is what American democracy has come to, bribing voters with tax money in order to get them to pay more in taxes and give up freedom.

Come on guys, 233 years is a good run by any yardstick. Alas, all good things....

With Ben Nelson and Landrieu out of the picture, the only Democrat we haven't heard from is Blanche Lincoln but I can't imagine she's going to be the lone hold out. Plus there's always the possibility History will decide to give Olympia Snowe a call today. And when History calls....

The vote is scheduled for 8 tonight but that's likely to slip.
