Reconciliation

By Ezra Klein

Recap: The median voter either approves of health-care reform or wants it to be more liberal; some questions about the conventional political history of the Democratic Party; and the filibuster that Republicans don't like.

Elsewhere:

1) A 1975 Time article on filibuster reform.

2) Lanny Davis is merely a well-compensated "conveyor belt" for information from a dictator who's kicked foreign media out of Côte d'Ivoire and is resisting the results of an election.

3) A sympathetic look at a foie gras farm.

4) I'll be discussing health-care reform on Countdown tonight.

Recipe of the day: Chocolate chip cookies.

Geez, Ezra! We all know that you are a staunch defender of the health care bill. But don't you think you are taking it a little too far by saying this?

"The median voter either approves of health-care reform or wants it to be more liberal"

Those are really some amazing statistical hoops you have to jump through to make it look not so bad.

Bottom-line to that poll is that 54% of those polled do NOT approve of the law!

Starting this year your child (or children) cannot be denied coverage simply because they have a pre-existing health condition. If you don't have insurance for you and your children search "Wise Health Insurance" online they are the best.

while I don't often comment directly on direct links to The New Racist, (you are only encouraging Peretz's Minions when you give The New Racist an active link, ezra) please don't forget Melanie Crews is also now working for Lanny Davis' shop, so by 6 degrees of seperation, CREW indirectlyb supports homicidal war criminals.

the world truly is flat
