AT LEAST people know we are all getting screwed. The damn shame is that there is nothing we can do about it.

I am sure you have heard that Harry Reid said that Senators who did not try to bribe him were not doing their jobs well. Many other said that this sleaziness is standard operating procedure.

Some commentator observed though, that what Lieberman did is standard procedure, that is threatening to vote no if the public option and budget busting was not taken out. They did take that out, so he voted yes. But what Ben Nelson did was unadulterated corruption. Like Lieberman, he demanded changes in the bill before he would vote yes. However, he did not get what he asked for, but took a bribe for his vote instead.

Many observers are noting the same thing I said. People have always heard about how corrupt Washington is, but this is the first time it is so blatant while they are paying attention.

While the country teeters on the brink of bankruptcy Democrats spent nearly a Trillion dollars stimulus bill which was not for stimulus, but to buy votes; a Budget Bill loaded with pork and ear marks as far as the eye can see; a budget busting health reform bill that is more corruption than reform.

It is obvious that Democrats have lost their collective minds. As a psychologist, I try to diagnose. One thought I have is their minds have all been invaded by demons. Another explanation is they have all contracted Folie à deux i.e. a shared madness. Finally, I heard the best explanation of all–they are all Democrats.

The Democrats may say there is no public option, but there is no way to know when there are 2,400 pages of legalese. All to be decided later with the Courts and the lawyers. Smoke and mirrors. It will be whatever the Courts, not the peoples representatives, decide.

Doctor Zero is a commenter on HotAir that is sometimes featured with his own thread. I always make sure to read his work when that happens. This is one of those times. The good doctor puts this "bribe list" thing in perspective.

It's not hard to figure out why Harry Reid is pushing so hard for Obama. Reid knows he can't win in Nevada, and is short as a Senator. I'll bet he has been promised a Cabinet position at the near end of his Senate term.
