Joe Biden cops to being a progressive.
Admittedly, it’s in the context of explaining why progressives need to take a bite of this surprisingly tasty, solid B+ health care rationing sandwich*, but actual semantic content is actual semantic content:
“I share the frustration of other progressives that the Senate bill does not include a public option.”
Especially when it’s sitting out there, all alone like that. But you saw it here first: Joe Biden’s a progressive. I wonder whether this means that moving forward the Vice President’s going to more forcefully oppose FISA, rendition, keeping Gitmo open, DADT, opposition to same-sex marriage, Iraq, Afghanistan, and so on**. I mean, the thought that he would be – merciful Heaven forbid! – lying to progressives would be awful***…
*Sarcasm, for those people who don’t get the reference. For those who do, and are spluttering: karma, kids. It’s what’s for dinner.
