    How're things, Paul?
    Alabama is 2-0, so things are good...

    How about that ad where a mean-looking Uncle Sam pops up between a woman's legs instead of the doctor?

    Same answer as last night. I haven't seen it, and I'm not really interested enough to seek it out...

    And Repubs in states like IL, such as Sen. Kirk, will vote for HeritageCare as he has on Toomey/Manchin.
    Fly-over Dems in LA, AR and so on will be given a pass on ACA just as on T/M.
    And I haven't tapped on you since the "old days".

    I've posted something similar.
    And if they can actually get a Senate vote, the Senators up in 2014 will have to defend their vote.

    Can't lose too many of those flyovers and still win the stripping vote.

    We'll see how many Senate Repubs vote to sustain the filibuster.
    After this November, it will be 55-45.
    A net 5 Dems can vote No with Biden breaking the tie.
    Kirk is a Yes, which makes 6 Dems, which covers everyone's tush.

    True enough.
    It'll be interesting to watch.

    Reid is going to attempt to strip it with only a majority vote.
