One of the joys of blogging under your real name is getting e-mails like this:
You wrote: “While the mainstream media and left-wing blogs constantly tell us that Republicans and conservatives are dead politically, I don’t think they actually believe what they are saying.”
Actually, some of us remember 1993-94. We assumed you were “dead” then too. We learned a lesson there. Respond. And respond quickly, no matter how absurd or seemingly petty the attacks from conservatives.
This time, Mr. Jacobson, we know you’re down and we’re going to keep you there. We intend to step on your throat.
That’s why you’re seeing this reaction. You can’t get away with your garbage any longer.
Get used to it.
Let this be a lesson. While we appear to be on the cusp of avoiding a health care “reform” disaster, and maybe even averting the cap-and-tax fiasco, a small victory here and there will not be the end so long as the people pushing this agenda remain in control of Congress.
The mid-term elections are only 15 months away. Evening out the balance of power in Congress is the best way to keep the throat-stampers away from the door.
