Hell’s Boiler Room Back in Service

Whew, that was close — when Bill O’Reilly came out in favor of the Public Option last week, we were sure we’d need to shop Beelzebub Outfitters for parkas before spending our eternity surrounded by evil penguins.

Happily, the Afterlife’s Global Cooling problem has been resolved. “The Internet is a safe haven for liars,” says O’Reilly, explaining that what he meant was a private-insurance pool for his non-BMW-driving viewers, not a government-run plan that denies robber barons their rightful profits.

“It just drives me crazy that you can’t have an honest dialogue in this country anymore,” says O’Reilly. We’ll enjoy reminding him of that one when we’re sharing loofahs in Hades.


OT – went to the bank and got to see the Preznit. Entourage came out of 49th (wrong way) and took off down Lex. Even got a good look at Satan’s ice cream truck.

@blogenfreude: That’s the most awesome burrito wagon I’ve ever seen, even if it doesn’t have flames on the side.

Meanwhile, don’t expect any privacy if you ever email a federal employee.

ADD FOR MY FELLOW GRAMMARIANS: Federal judge bitchslaps attorney for terrible grammar and spelling in a motion, returns a corrected copy to the attorney and orders him to show it to the client. DAMN!

@SanFranLefty: Does this apply to private crackberries?

House Republican Whip Eric Cantor to constituent asking about uninsured woman with tumors who can’t get treatment, channeling O’Really?:

“First of all I guess I would ask what the situation is in terms of income eligibility and the existing programs that are out there. Because if we look at the uninsured that are out there right now, there is probably 23, 24% of the uninsured that is already eligible for an existing government program […] Beyond that, I know that there are programs, there are charitable organizations, there are hospitals here who do provide charity care if there’s an instance of indigency and the individual is not eligible for existing programs that there can be some cooperative effort. No one in this country, given who we are, should be sitting without an option to be addressed.

Tha fuh?


One sometimes wonders what planet these assholes live on.

@SanFranLefty: Hey, anyone with a modicum of initiative can easily raise the funds they need for critical medical procedures by placing a coffee can for change next to the cash register of a convenience store. Obviously, they shouldn’t be sitting without an option, they should be out groveling and holding bake sales. That’s the ‘Murrican way.
