A TURD, BY ANY OTHER NAME, …

Does anyone remember the old Saturday Night Live “Land Shark” skits? The audience would be viewing an apartment and there would be a knock at the door:

Woman: [standing behind her closed door] Who is it?
Voice: Plumber, ma’am.
Woman: But I don’t need a plumber.
Voice: [after a long pause] Flowers.
Woman: Flowers for whom?
Voice: [after another long pause] Candygram.

And on it would go until the woman finally gets an answer she believes, opens the door and is eaten by the land shark.

Well, we are now living through that comedy skit all the time. As Liberal tradition requires, if an idea is not successful under one name, you can change the name several times until people accept it. They began by pushing “Health Care Reform”, then changed the name to “Health Insurance Reform” believing they could more easily demonize health insurance companies. Now we have moved on to “Government-Chartered Co-op Plan”. Folks, if it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it is Nationalized Healthcare.
