Wrong answer - it's DOA

No could have predicted that the GOP would pull a sleazy double-cross on the reform bill.
Is it time for bipartisanship itself to start its own “end of life consultations”? Probably not, but Dem anger is palpable on the Hill over Grassley’s decision to throw in his lot with the “death panel” brigade at a time when he’s supposed to be the GOP’s point man for good-faith bipartisan efforts to find common ground on health care reform.
Yes, once again Lucy yanked the football and left the Charlie Brown Dems lying on their butts in the Grassley. Looks like our spineless Senators are going to let the GOP's pet crazies win and yank the end of life counseling provision. This is dangerous on so many levels, not the least of which is the crazies will feel empowered and they won't stop. They'll just keep getting crazier.

Greg is wrong here. It is most definitely time to convene the "death panel" and declare bipartisanship DOA.

Hilarious that Grassly and Palin are now claiming that they've killed the Death Panels. How a private citizen and a Senator can kill a provision that doesn't actually exist in a house bill when the house is in recess I don't know, but the public doesn't either.

Only in the Unhinged States of America.

The scary part is even though it's less than a Phyrric victory, the crazies will view it as a win and they are going to get crazier. I just know it.
