Sundays With Jamie Kilstein And The Lord: 9/11 Is The 9/11 Of Health Care Analogies

News

Well, 9/11 officially became the new Hitler this week as Republican Congressman Mike Pence likened the Supreme Court ruling on “Obamacare” to the attacks that killed 2,996 people and injured more than 6,000. I guess at least, if that happens again, that’ll be 6,000 people that will now have health insurance in case they happen to be in another building that A PLANE CRASHES INTO!


The Affordable Care Act could be way better. I know it is a giveaway to the health insurance companies, but millions of people will now have coverage and this is step one in going after state-by-state single-payer, so people don’t die in the streets. But, you may say, why should we reward the companies that have been killing those people for decades? I KNOW! SHUT UP!

But are Republicans even trying anymore? It’s like they have a word bank of crap that octogenarians are afraid of and they just randomly pull it out every time something they don’t like happens. JOE BIDEN IS A BLACK TEENAGER! SANDRA FLUKE IS AN ABORTION!

How can you even make a comparison like that and expect to be taken seriously?! It was the 9/11 of analogies, the holocaust of word selection, and you are the drowned baby of politicians.

I’m not a fan of the health insurance mandate. I want a public option or Medicare for all. I’m not thrilled about it. Would I compare it to the biggest attack on American soil? No. Mainly because healthcare is the opposite of murder!

These assholes are just running out of scary analogies. If there is another attack on America, I might believe it was an inside job by Republicans so they could have something to compare gay marriage to when it finally gets legalized.

Mike Pence wants to be the governor of Indiana. He still may win. Republicans will still vote for him. But for a party of people who pretend to be so patriotic, I would ask them to consider what is more patriotic: Trying to end the wars that are killing our soldiers, murdering hundreds of thousands of innocent Arabs, while creating a deep-seeded hatred of this country that may lead to another attack, or using one of the biggest tragedies to ever happen on American soil as a political tool so that you can get more campaign contributions from an industry that, up until this week, could deny a member of your family coverage because they had cancer? Think about it and don’t be just a 9/11.

Jamie Kilstein will get all 9/11 on Mike Pence's ass. No he won't. He is a pacifist. Listen to his podcast at wearecitizenradio.com.

Dame Peggington Noonington awakened in the New York Publick Librarie in a daze. She did not know what series of unfortunate events had led to this moment, but she vaguely remembered that last time this happened a passerby on 5th Avenue had transported her there, having found her on a stoop with eyes glazed over, muttering "Buk! Buk!" If we're being honest, she was choking on gin, but the well-meaning Good Samaritan took her for a woman craving classic literature, and Peggy was OK with allowing that illusion to stand.

As she stumbled toward the exit to summon her chauffeur -- Manuel, who was also her houseboy, who probably was responsible entirely for her current predicament, and would be subject to a talking-to about his derring-do as soon as Peggy's head stopped pounding -- she happened upon a display of new arrivals. "Buk! Buk!" she said. Swallowing hard, she grabbed a copy of Michelle Obama's book and went out onto the New York street without actually checking the book out.

Peggy arrived home safely, if a bit worse for the wear. She had been thinking about America's royal families a lot lately, especially the genteel women who serve as First Lady. She was particularly charmed by Melania Trump's show of wicked mischief last week, firing the deputy national security adviser without regret! Peggy remembered how fun it is to fire people and stuck a Post-it on her forehead to remind her to fire Manuel later, for leaving her destitute among the commoners at the librarie.

Congratulations to the Dear Leader on his flawless victory in court against the media dogs at the CNN cesspool of evil. Donald Trump is a champion of the people's right to civil discourse, and he will not hesitate to slap those who hurt the dignity of the Supreme Leadership. Take it from Ri Chun-hee Sarah Huckabee Sanders:

Today the court made clear that there is no absolute First Amendment right to access the White House. In response to the court, we will temporarily reinstate the reporter's hard pass. We will also further develop rules and processes to ensure fair and orderly press conferences in the future. There must be decorum at the White House.

Leave aside for a moment the screaming irony of the Pussgrab Administration lecturing the press on decorum. Literally none of what the Huckster said here is true. Judge Timothy Kelly ordered the White House Press Office to reinstate Jim Acosta's hard pass immediately on Fifth Amendment grounds. He didn't reach the First Amendment issues of press access because he didn't have to.
