When frogs don't start falling from the sky, even the teabaggers will have to calm down

Well, not all of them. But when all the Medicare recipients who have been screaming "Keep the government out of my Medicare!" at rallies start getting $250 rebate checks as part of closing the prescription drug "doughnut hole", and see other immediate benefits as outlined by Rachel Maddow last night...

...the bellowing of John ManTan Boehner on the floor of the House the other night is going to look pretty damn ludicrous. Because this fall, the Republicans are going to have to run on the freedom of insurance companies to make absurd profits by refusing to cover your future pregnancies if you've ever been pregnant before, dropping you if you get sick, and raising your premiums by 40% a year.

Somehow that doesn't strike me as a winning platform. And as for John McCain, a clip of whom is shown in the segment above, is unlikely to be able to do anything to repeal it, because it looks increasingly likely that no matter how much he panders to the Ranks of the Stoopid in Arizona, he's going to get his clock cleaned by one of them in the primary.
