let the finger-pointing begin

From David Frum, former Bush speechwriter, on the Right's HCR "strategy":
We followed the most radical voices in the party and the movement, and they led us to abject and irreversible defeat.
So today’s defeat for free-market economics and Republican values is a huge win for the conservative entertainment industry. Their listeners and viewers will now be even more enraged, even more frustrated, even more disappointed in everybody except the responsibility-free talkers on television and radio. For them, it’s mission accomplished. For the cause they purport to represent, it’s Waterloo all right: ours.
One can only hope. Though I must say, as much as this bill is a sad excuse for actual reform, it's nice to see some Republican heads exploding for a change (metaphorically speaking, of course).
