You can't make this stuff up:
Democrat presidential contender Sen. Hillary Clinton today decried the allegedly poor conditions, stifling bureaucracy and negligent care at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and throughout the VA healthcare system, but added, “Just think how bad it would be if it weren’t a government run system.”

As military patients and their spouses testified before a Senate panel about vermin-infested, moldy rooms, neglect and miles of red tape, Sen. Clinton told reporters, “This crisis serves only to highlight our desperate need for a tax-funded, government-managed universal healthcare system for all Americans.”

“When I’m president,” she said, “I’ll give the average American the same excellent quality of care we now provide for our nation’s heroes…but without the rats, mold and bureaucracy. I’ll sign legislation outlawing that kind of inefficiency, mismanagement and public employee apathy.”
OK. So you can make it up.

Jokes aside, I notice that as 1st lady and then Senator, Hillary never really bothered to care about this, much less do anything about it.

Wow. She really does believe you can just pass a law outlawing problems, and they magically go away.

My jaw is still on the floor.

Wha...? The sad thing is, there are people out there who believe crap like that, and will lap it up.

Stupid, lazy liberals not only will believe that government healthcare is a good thing, they are primed to throw more money at it when the inevitable inefficiency, mismanagement and public employee apathy mysteriously appear.
"I’ll sign legislation outlawing that kind of inefficiency, mismanagement and public employee apathy."
Read this carefully. She doesn’t say she believes that this will have any particular effect on the targets of the legislation. If you are a stupid liberal you supply the belief that this will solve the problem. She is a politicain first and foremost. That means that she finds out what people want and then positions herself so that they can believe that she will provide it. The sad thing is not Hillary. She merely reflects the sad nature of the stupid liberals who are demanding her (or someone even more ridiculous). [Can you say Murtha?]

Think bread and circuses.

Heh ... thus the line:

I think this rates as a "gotchya".

Advice: Always click through on a blog link.

It also helps, at times, to note the category of the post.

It got me. Of course, it is difficult to tell satire from reality in politics these days.

To be perfectly honest Bob, I couldn’t agree more.
