Enemy of the Good
Things what make my eyes cross in pain:
“That’s what it sounded like to me,” said Sen. Evan Bayh (D., Ind.), when asked Monday if the Medicare “buy-in” proposal was dropped. “To use the old cliche, the general consensus was that we shouldn’t make the perfect the enemy of the good.”

Or the bullshit the enemy of the ridiculous. Or the severely compromised the enemy of the forget-it-why-bother.
I don’t know where these people live. What planet they are on. What language they speak. What air they breathe. They step into our world from another dimension, squawk shrill noises at us and give our babies wedgies and push homeless people off bridges and tell us we are free.
This is not “reform.” It’s a “tweak.”
