Imagine it is 1998, and you are a writer for the online version of the National Review. In the past couple of weeks, President Bill Clinton has nationalized hundreds of billions worth of hospitals, and is now proposing a close to $1 trillion giveaway to the health insurance industry. First, imagine for a moment what the collective freak-out would be like from the right. Christ, you would be able to hear the hysterics coming from Rush Limbaugh without a microphone.
Then write your headline and put it in the comments. My headline:
“Liberal Fascism One Step Closer to Fruition as Soros Stroked Adulterous Clenis Siezes Assets From Citizenry to Liberally Redistribute Them to Fat Cat Big Healthcare”
Enjoy. Fiscal conservatives, my ass.
PS- I don’t know what lawmaker wrote this, but I want to move there so I can vote for him/her.
*** Update ***
You have to be kidding:
“A lot of those people will have to sell their homes, they’re going to cut back on the private jets and the vacations. They may even have to take their kids out of private school,” said Frank. “It’s a total reworking of their lifestyle.”
He added that it’s going to be no easy task.
“It’s going to be very hard psychologically for these people,” Frank said. “I talked to one guy who had to give up his private jet recently. And he said of all the trials in his life, giving that up was the hardest thing he’s ever done.”
