The Worst Idea Ever

So far I've actually been rather quiet about politics this election season. I suppose part of it is my attempt to be a bit more professional, less partisan, more appealing to visitors once I get some content built.

But today, I must speak.

I watched the debates last night, between John McCain and Barrack Obama. Especially the part about health care. You see, I used to work in the insurance industry, so I know at least a little itty bit about it. And this is what I found:

John McCain’s health-care plan for our nation is, quite literally, the worst idea mankind has ever given birth to. It is a festering, necrotic abortion of reason, and an affront to all thinking non-HMO CEO creatures on the planet.

...

I’m still trying to figure out if the idea to green-light a movie like Gigli was a worse decision than this health care plan or not, and I’m actually having a tough time deciding, that’s how unfathomably bad it is.

Of course, if you want to see the downfall of America, this is a good start. Bush has destroyed our economy, I figure McCain can annihilate healthcare, and then the next Republican after him could, perhaps, destroy agriculture. It seems like a logical progression to me.

...

Ok, getting down from my soapbox now.

Perhaps, once I calm down, I will explain in detail why it is such a heinous thing, but there are plenty of sources out there that do a better job than I.

I totally agree with your assessment of the McCain health plan. I will go one step further in stating that the decision of whether it is a worse idea than green lighting a movie such as Gili. If only for the reason that Gili, as far as I know, hasn't been the cause of, or even linked to the death of any innocent individual (note: You are no longer innocent if you attended or even glimpsed the movie). That being said, and in regards to the debate, am I one of the precious few individuals out there who finds McCain's total lack of respect and decorum in really any situation troubling? I can understand the attempt to appeal to the "every man" but I want an individual in the WH that is going to present himself with a quiet poise, and courteous behaviour in every official capacity. Not someone who's going to roll his eyes at, interrupt, and generally disrespect those around him with whom he does not agree. But then again, apparently I'm an elitist, east coast liberal and don't understand the plight of the "flyover" majority.

Yeah, don't get me started on corn subsidies. Sheesh.

Too much politics. Blood... pressure... spiking... dangerously.... *twitch*
