Double-Plus Good

...I'm not going to link to it but the Leftiest local columnist in our metropolitan fishwrap puddles up his column-inches today A) arguing the new health care plan is a wonderful compromise, a boon to all and a burden to none while also telling us dull plebes that B) it is largely symbolic and nowhere near as good as what the rest of the world has, especially Europe. All at the same time!

When writ large, it's called "antinomy." At this level and this blatantly, it's doublethink, pure and simple.

I do hope that I'm not the only one who had to read the Wikipedia page to realize that this isn't a chem lesson. (I plead the fifth, an early morning, and not enough coffee yet!)

Good description. It seems this health-care bill is the only one in history that won't have an impact on anyone. At least that's the left's argument.

You now join the ranks with Billy Beck who forced me to look up episomology a year or two ago...and then try to understand what it really means. Now I've got another great word to drop into casual conversation thereby cementing my reputation as a pedantic demagogue and not the regularl guy they thought.

It's true though! The word aptly describes the philosophy of the left. We can have everything at a cost to no one.
