Why Democrats will probably get nothing done on health care reform...

Because too many of their members are so afraid of their own shadows, they'll happily embrace right-wing talking points, if only to distance themselves from them.

Case in point: Blue Dog Democrat, Mike Ross of Arkansas on CNN this weekend...

"I will never vote for a bill to kill old people. Period."
Boom! In that one asinine statement, Ross has left people with the impression that there is, in fact, a bill being debated in Congress that would "kill old people".

Why wouldn't he just step up and tell the truth that there is NO BILL IN CONGRESS THAT SUPPORTS KILLING OLD PEOPLE!!! Instead, he embraces a right-wing LIE, and legitimizes it by responding to it.

My God, Democrats are infuriating...
