Obasm over for Obamacare

The Associated Press follows a headline with a good punchline:

And how perfect is it that the Urban Dictionary already defined this way back in 2007, “The pleasure that a liberal-leaning journalist gets when writing a fawning story about U.S. Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL). An “obasm” is a story so gushy and so fluffy, bereft of objectivity, that one imagines having to clean up after the writer with a mop and bucket.”

Consider the Supreme Court the current mop and bucket sent in to clean up the legislative mess.

I’m not fretting over the buckets of joy some are gushing over what is actually the Supreme Court’s almost guaranteed decision to push the reset button Obamacare. The requirement to buy insurance is just one facet of contention being reviewed now by the third branch of the checks and balances on that convoluted rush-job of legislature.

I’ll just let the evil genius James Carville blather on about how he predicts this loss will ultimately be jujitsu-ed into a win for Democrats, because well that’s politics as usual.

“I think this will be the best thing that has ever happened to the Democratic Party,” Carville said Tuesday on CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.”

He added, “You know, what the Democrats are going to say, and it is completely justified, ‘We tried, we did something, go see a 5-4 Supreme Court majority’.”

“Then the Republican Party will own the healthcare system for the foreseeable future. And I really believe that. That is not spin.”

Actually the health care lobby which lobbies/bribes both parties is also working the Supreme Court (evidence), so let’s just dispense with his Obasm as well by saying “nope, Obamacare is just as much a democrat failure”.
