If someone manages to shut up self-indulgent U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman long enough and the current health care reform bill approved by the House makes it through the Senate more or less intact, no doubt President Obama will be spinning it as a major victory. It might be a victory for Obama's administration, but I'm not sure it will be a victory for the American people.
So I was sorting through a folder of paperwork last weekend in order to get an early jump on my tax return. Taxes, what a joke. Barack Obama ran his campaign on the themes of 'hope' and 'change,' and he was pretty convincing. Hope? Change? Nah, sounds like too much work. I prefer to just sit around, bitch, moan and be cynical. After all, a cynic is never disappointed.
