Democrats in the Deathmobile


Robert Stacy McCain's latest American Spectator column touches on the seeming death-pact congressional Dems have entered into with Madame Pelosi, sacrificing all for the cult of political suicide...

Does anyone else remember what happened Jan. 19? Did anyone else watch the confetti fly and hear the band play in the ballroom of Boston's Park Plaza Hotel two months ago? Or was the election of a Republican to the Senate seat held for more than four decades by Ted Kennedy merely a dream?

Scott Brown won by pledging to be the Senate's "41st vote" against Obamacare, but Nancy Pelosi and her fellow House Democrats seem intent on pretending that Brown's historic victory in Massachusetts never happened as they prepare to enact the president's health care plan By Any Means Necessary.

Pelosi's implacable determination in the face of such clear indicators that voters oppose this measure has left opponents straining for analogies to describe the arguably unconstitutional process. Lindsey Graham insulted the Japanese by comparing Democrats to kamikaze pilots "liquored up on sake" for a suicide mission. It might be more diplomatic to compare Democratic maneuvers to the Animal House scene of Delta Tau Chi brothers crammed inside their hurtling Deathmobile: "Ramming speed!"

It would all be comical were it not for the possibility that this slapstick legislative fraternity prank -- perpetrated by the "Slaughter Solution" with Enron-like accounting gimmicks from the Congressional Budget Office -- might yet become law...



How did we arrive at this juncture?
