A little harder today, since most heads were making nice with Teddy platitudes. One thing he had that's going to be missed is a sense of civility and a willingness to work with others of opposing viewpoints. That's just what the healthcare debate needs and just what it doesn't have. Instead, what we've got is Democrats who fudge the real costs of the thing and Republicans who settle for scaring the shit out of old people. It's a time that calls for giants and all I see are creepy crawly things. Maybe I should lay off those wasabi peas at bedtime.
