But of course you knew that.
On today’s symposium, the blowhard-in-chief and Republican Party head took this shot at Mark Udall:
FATASS: There is no majority for the public option in an honest poll. “I’m not going to let four senators dictate to the rest of us…” Well, it’s going to be a lot more than four because a lot more than four are going to hold out for something like what Landrieu got: $300 million. Here’s Mark Udall on the Senate floor. He’s a Democrat from Utah. Here’s a portion of what he said.
UDALL: My advice to women in listening to this debate is that they should be consulting their doctors when it comes to things like this. They should be listening to their doctors. Their doctors are up on the best research; they’re up on the best science; they’re up on the best medicine and get on top of it. And so I would just say to the women of America, “Listen to your doctors, not to Rush Limbaugh.”
FATASS: He’s on the floor of the US Senate and I do not know what he was talking about. Maybe it was the mammogram thing. I have no clue what he was talking about. All I know is that I could probably put my finger on a number of women’s lives who have been saved as a result of listening to this show. [emphasis mine]
Oh where to start.
First, Mark Udall is from Colorado. And second, that’s not Mark Udall, the Senior Senator from Colorado. It’s Tom Udall. And Tom Udall’s not from Utah either, he’s the Junior Senator from New Mexico.
But neither facts nor credibility have ever gotten in the way of a good rant before.
