Democrats seem to generally be afflicted with a bad case of the In-theories

  • "In theory, practice is easy" as they say.
  • EngineerSpeak for "We need to test that". ;-)
  • I want to live in Theory. Everything works in Theory.

  • "The difference between theory and reality is a lot bigger in reality than it is in theory."
Here's an affliction the healthcare.gov developers did NOT have.

And WTF is that thing perched on the Queen's granddaughter's head? It looks like an oily wadded up old shop rag
