As of 7:56 p.m. my time, Erick Erickson at RedState believes that all is not lost.
"There is still a change [sic], though increasingly slim, that the House GOP will be able to blow up the health care bill on a motion to recommit," Erickson writes.
Republicans can also "[p]ledge immediate repeal in toto of Obamacare should it pass." And they can "[p]ledge to adopt for their own use the exact same rules under which Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats have governed the House of Representatives."
Hell, they can even challenge parts of the bill in court, Erickson says.
Hey, Erick, I have an idea: win a freaking election. That's what you can do. Win an election.
And by the way, you might find a supermajority in the Senate helpful, now that your party has established its necessity.
You lost the election. Stop your whining, you pathetic bunch of crybabies. That goes for you racist, homophobic Teabaggers as well. [And if any of you Teabaggers are insulted by this, then I have two things to say: (1) shame on you for feeling insulted, and (2) you lost your right to complain when you started throwing the n-word around.]
Note: this is Your Analytic Analeptic's one hundredth post! Φ's kinda excited about it, even if no one else is.
