Here's one of many interesting points in "Lightning Round: The Continuing Unpopularity of the Republican Party is Excellent News for Republicans" (an in-joke I never get tired of), posted by Mori Dinauer:

• Speaking of health-care reform, Jonathan Chait use the latest conservative attack on Obama's fiscal policies -- that he's honest about ugly budget numbers -- to point out the hypocrisy of the GOP's commitment to "fiscal responsibility:" "George W. Bush and the Republicans created a new health care entitlement in 2003 that was completely unfinanced. Not a dime was paid for. The Democrats have decided to completely finance every cent of health care reform, and they're taking a hundred times more flack for fiscal irresponsibility than the Republicans ever did."

Jon's whole post is worth a read, especially if you have yet to grasp fully what we mean by IOKIYAR.

P.S. On an unrelated note, but certainly a related theme, Mori also points to a report -- and this'll shock you -- that Glenn Beck is either lying or clueless. This time, the giant baby is whining about net neutrality, and he's about as wrong as he can be.
