You’re Always A Day Away

So how many excuses does this make?

First Obama and the Democrats couldn’t pass the public option because they didn’t have 60 votes in the Senate.

Then they couldn’t pass the public option because Ben Nelson and Joe Lieberman were unmovable and un-getaroundable.

Then they couldn’t pass the public option because they didn’t have 60 votes in the Senate.

Then they couldn’t pass the public option because they didn’t have 50 votes in the Senate to pass it through reconciliation (even though they did).

Then they couldn’t pass the public option because they didn’t want to change the reconciliation sidecar bill, because that would force the House to vote on it again.

Now the House has to vote on the sidecar again anyway because the Senate Parliamentarian forced some changes, and the excuse for not adding the public option back is…?

But don’t worry – the Democrats assure us that they’ll take up the public option again… right after their fecklessness costs them a whole bunch of seats in the next election.  Brilliant.
