There must be a better way.
To some degree the same thing is going on tonight, because Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, and some callers on the talk shows, are talking about how they are ‘reinvigorated’ by tonight’s speech. Obama isn’t responsible this time; I think his speech was a good one, full of content, but we see how the lizard brain can be a problem.
BTW Sandler chose to liken Obama’s plan to putting a bandaid on a gaping wound, but I’ve treated a gaping wound, and that’s exactly how you treat one. :) You keep it clean and covered and it slowly fills in from the bottom up. That’s what I hope happens with healthcare. If you close it, it gets infected. (War wounds mostly are left open this way, because they are filthy and very prone to infection. But it happens a lot also with stitched wounds that open up when the stitches are removed, which is what I had to help someone with by doing the cleaning and bandaiding.)
