This is the best intraparty civil war I've ever seen.

I thought Boner-care was already a trillion dollar industry, based on how many V14gra ads there are during sports telecasts

Call it what it is, InsuranceCare.

Thinking before derping or acting definitely isn't the teabaggers' strong suit, is it?

All reacting, no thinking.

6 people could show up to this, but Fox News & some super conservative blogs will still give them coverage and then it will be everywhere.  It would just be close ups of each of the protestors with the background cropped out so you can't see that there is barely anybody there.

now that it looks like its here to stay and might actually be popular, they want to try to name it for someone on their side?  that is it?

There's advocating to their senior citizen male base, but isn't that name just a little on the nose?

Orange you glad we didn't call it Obamacare?

Satan's Bunny Slippers: Rule 34?


I'm certain I do not want to see that rule invoked regarding Boehner or members of the Tea Party.

That's going to be hard.  The GOP stiffs in congress are pretty rigid about calling the package Obamacare.

"Bonercare"?

There's already a pill for that.

FTA: A group of tea party activists plan to hold a rally outside House Speaker John Boehner's (R-OH) office Tuesday, threatening to rebrand President Barack Obama's signature health care law as "BoehnerCare" if the speaker doesn't join a conservative movement to defund the program.

Meanwhile, Eric Cantor reads the article, imagines how "Speaker Eric Cantor" would sound and pitches a raging, smarmy tent in his pants.

Protect ya neck, John.  PROTECT YA NECK!!!!

Unfortunately it was the first thing that jumped into my dark and dusty little mind, and I didn't want to bear that burden alone.

cameroncrazy1984: This is the best intraparty civil war I've ever seen.


Isn't it, though?  There's been no satisfying explosion, and I don't think there will be - but if it's not going out with a bang, it's certainly not going with a whimper, either.

Elandriel: So the monster is finally truly rising up against the master.


As many of us foretold back in 2009.  (Can you believe these idiots have only been around in this form since Obama's inauguration?)

This is going to be fun to watch, friends.  I cannot WAIT for the election season to start.

The very definition of 'reactionary' conservatism.

Their video was banned from youtube for hate speech.

Religious NUTS.
 
2013-08-26 04:26:47 PM
I remember how Boehner was red in the face yelling "HELL NO!" about Obamacare on the House floor. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy to think that the very conservatives he appealed to with that display of anger now want to call it Boehnercare.

There just might be a god after all.

See, what's going to happen is that they will credit any good things to the state exchanges like KYnect (which doesn't mention it's related to the PPACA) and blame Obamacare for anything in the aggregate: nominal prices rising, doctors being out of network, and waiting times even if the data shows that these issue are becoming less severe.

Now is the time of knowing what to do.

Not the medulla-oblongota. Much further, the fear center. What do you expect from people whose decision process is ruled by the amygdala.

Nah, they've actually embraced it. All the Organizing for Action emails have referred to it as such in the past year-and-a-half.

Awwww.... Now I have the sad.

Here's an idea:  Call it The Affordable Health Care Act.  I haven't seen the media try that yet.
 
2013-08-26 04:39:22 PM
Haha, here I thought this is another of Neocon's attempt to reclaim to policy that may become popular like Medicare.

So maybe the reptilian overlord conspiracy is actually the opposite, maybe it is the reptilian underlings conspiracy.

You sure about that? He's usually orange in the face, so it can look red depending on the lighting.

InmanRoshi:  A middle-aged man in a red golf shirt shuffles up to a small folding table with gold trim, in a booth adorned with a flotilla of helium balloons, where government workers at the Kentucky State Fair are hawking the virtues of Kynect, the state's health benefit exchange established by Obamacare.

The man is impressed. "This beats Obamacare I hope," he mutters to one of the workers.

"Do I burst his bubble?" wonders Reina Diaz-Dempsey, overseeing the operation.


Dammit, beat me to it (with the link too).

You'd think that, wouldn't you? But no, it's not. They're claiming 'you fund it, you own it', as if it'll be a giant anchor around Boehner's neck or something.
