    Alabama Representative Parker Griffith (D) is going to announce today that he is so unnerved by the health care bill that he's switching to the Republican party.

    Good deal.

    My hearty good wishes to Rep Griffith

    I hope the people of Alabama enjoy their new healthcare benefits.

    Sounds good, but I'm not sure the Republicans need anymore Democrat-lites in their party.... He probably realizes anyone with a (D) besides their name is going to have a hard time getting re-elected... Anyway, I guess that's a start.

    So? Fuck him.

    Red or blue, R, or D- all meaningless; it's the policies that matter.

    Why doesn't he stop trying to get his reelection campaign going early, ignore the partisan crap, and simply stand up and vote based on his principles? Let his actions speak for themselves. I see nothing here but early reelection campaigning.

    That's OK.

    Those will never kick in.

    If they ever do it won't be for several years anyway.

    By the way...you know that bill isn't supposed to provide free health care...you know that...right????

    Yes, I'm so sure that's the reason. He lives in the deep south, amid a sea of right wing fringers. He wants to get reelected. Duh...
