Just Say No

— by Wombat-socho Silicon Valley delenda est. Normally I wait for the evening link dump for things like this, but Bob Zimmermann dropped me an e-mail about the impending FDA hearings & comment period on the notion of giving the jab to kids 5-11. This notion is just absolutely unscientific. We’ve known for a long […]

Senator Frist Thinks ObamaCare Will Remain Undead

by Smitty (via Digg) Here is a cheery thought: Frist told a Sioux Falls, S.D., audience Wednesday that even if the Supreme Court strikes down the individual insurance mandate at the core of the law, it can still be implemented successfully. “It’s going to survive,” Frist said, according to the Sioux Falls Argus Leader. “It’s […]

Logic May Be Off The Table In ObamaCare Discussions, But Still…

by Smitty NewsBusters points to a WaPo correction where the WaPo had hammered Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) for “posturing” by bringing a copy of the subject matter at hand to the health care summit. That makes about as much sense as Yale’s craven refusal to publish the controversial Danish cartoon depictions of Muhammad in a […]

Primus Reaches Unprecedented Effort Level In Healthcare Promotion

by Smitty (via Insty) Daniel Foster at NRO quotes the Washington Examiner: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s top health care aide Wendell Primus admitted top Democrats have already decided on the strategy to pass the Senate’s pro-abortion, government-run health care bill.
