Fair and balanced and weird

This is some uncommonly smart, measured health-care reform commentary from Fox News. What's weird, however, is that it's coming from Mick Foley, better known as the professional wrestler "Mankind."

I guess this isn't surprising for two reasons. First, I'm not surprised that Fox would tap a professional wrestler to make the pro-health-care argument, thinking that it would be a joke. But I'm also not surprised that Foley would be well read and articulate. He's always been the thinking man's ultraviolent psychopath. I will never forget a promo he cut years ago in which he managed to work in both Leonard Cohen and a discussion of eating disorders. Even with innumerable head injuries, he's still far more intelligent and entertaining than anyone else on Fox.
