Public Option Rises Again, To Be Slaughtered As Soon As Expectations Peak

Look, 20ish senators -- including Super Powerful Chuck Schumer -- have called for a public option to be passed through reconciliation, which is good policyand good politics, because it shows the opposition that if they're not willing to offer some votes, more provisions they don't like will be passed. (Not that they actually care about the provision one way or another beyond its political exploitability.) Is this going somewhere, or are certain senators just trying to cover their asses and say "we tried" when they know it's not going to happen? THREE GUESSES. (That said, if they actually are serious and this pans out, Wonkette will "reward" each one with a custom Blingee.) [Ezra Klein]
