I gotta stop watching this shit

Howard Dean took the hotseat on Hardball just now and Chris Matthews battered him repeatedly with the republican talking point that the Massachusetts senatorial special election was a referendum on the democratic party's efforts at health care reform, such as they are.

Several times, Matthews struck home with the point that this election represented a national dislike for the notion of government-sponsored public health care and that Massachusetts voters specifically rejected it, so you could therefore extrapolate that the entire country was against it.

Not one time did Howard Dean make the simple statement that Massachusetts already has a successful and much-liked statewide healthcare system that is superior to anything the democrats have offered and they probably don't care in the least about whether the rest of the nation has one or not, they have their own lives to worry about. All elections are local, remember?

The democrats are bringing pillows to a gunfight and they seem to be cool with losing. Change we can count on, indeed.
