  • SmutBoffin

    Am I a bad person for enjoying the fact that the Teabaggers, crying tears of pure racism and pooping poos of pure stupidity, have failed in their first (only) political test of popular politics?

  • The Station Manager

    We are literally sliding towards Communism. Literally. And it’s a blast.

  • chaste everywhere

    This is a nine-percentage-points fucking deal.

  • Marxist-Leninist Papist

    Well, to be fair to our fellow gun toting head jobs citizens who share with us this fair Republic, most armed revolutions (including the one which founded us as the greatest-nation-ever in creation) do not have clear majority support until after they are won. Not to give these free market fascists any ideas or anything…

    NEWS FLASH: Americans are suddenly all totally gay for forced abortion death panel socialism. I bet my fetus will fly farther than your fetus.

  • Texan Bulldoggette

    I WANT MY COUNTRY BACK! Okay, I’m confused–a 9 point swing in less than 24 hours? It’s like they just polled those who have all their teeth or something.

    WHY DO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NOT REFLECT THE WILL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE?

  • Mild Midwesterner

    Huh? You don’t have to be in a shitty hotel room in order to read USA Today?

  • freakishlystrong

    “The American People” per every Republican blowhard out there, apparently DO want this bill. Fuck you Boner.

  • RoscoePColtraine

    This is very bad news for John McCain.

  • proudgrampa

    So, let’s see if I’ve got his right.

    They were for it before they were against it before they were for it?

    Or something?

  • chascates

    Now is the time to legalize cannabis! The ‘baggers will be expecting amnesty for the hordes of illegalz or taxing the air we breath so it should sneak through just fine.

  • Fuck Toad

    Americans like winners. People like this bill more than before it passed because it passed and thus it’s a winner.

  • tombones

    iirc only around 40% were previously opposed “because it’s too liberal”, 40% were in favor, and around 15% were opposed “because it’s not liberal enough”. so what we’re seeing here is some of the ~15% saying “eh, good enough”

  • StripesAndPlaids

    This is a good first step, but I personally won’t be happy until every man, woman and child in America is gay married to an illegal alien or an abortion doctor.

  • ILoveMyCuntry

    That’s because many who didn’t like, didn’t like it because it didn’t go far enough. Now that it’s done they recognize a victory when they see it.

  • One Yield Regular

    I’m confused – does these mean we should grab our cardboard pitchforks and Don’t Tread on Me flags and march on GOP headquarters?

  • JMP

    But the conservatives and media kept telling me that this was unpopular, against the will of the American people!

    Of course, they only justified that dubious claim by lumping people who thought the bill was too liberal with those who though the bill was too conservative , which together outnumbered people who supported the bill as it was. Fun with misleading statistics!

  • Ducksworthy

    Well shit. There you have it. Now we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

  • RoscoePColtraine

    My visit to lunatic-land (Glenn Beck’s teevee spectacle on FOX) informed me that 76% of U.S. Americans were definitely against the bill. Someone is lying to us.

  • Hooray For Anything

    Wait, but all those pundits on cable news said this was going to be a disaster for the Democrats? Ize confused– they’re always right.

    [re=538247]4tehlulz[/re]: Or John McCain’s Town Hall

  • gurukalehuru

    I blame Hollywood. All of our lives, on the big screen and on TV, we’ve been shown again and again and again and again that the good guys win, its been repeated so often that we accept it as a fact even though it is demonstrably false in real life. And if the good guys always win, then the ones who won must be the good guys. The audience cheers.
    In this case, it’s great, because we won. But it swings both ways.

  • JMP

    [re=538251]freakishlystrong[/re]: Now, remember, when the Republicans talk about the will of the American people, they mean the will of the white, straight (or closeted), male or knows-her-place, Christian American people. There a majority may still be against it.

  • comicbookguy

    One look at Angry Orange Boehner convinced the country that we need health reform.

    And of course expect the tea party to turn around and support the will of the people immediately ;)

  • Jim Demintia

    I knew things would turn around as soon as Americans realized they can now legally abort their grandmas.

  • Ducksworthy

    [re=538281]gurukalehuru[/re]: I think the drama helped too. The loony baggers made it entertaining. And entertainment is what its all about.

    Now that is going to be comedy gold.

  • AxmxZ

    What a surprise: as soon as the MSM stops debating whether this bill is “socialist” or not and actually starts EXPLAINING what’s in it, suddenly it’s not so scary anymore! And the whole phraseology of victory – Democrats won, this is a victory, etc – feeds the love of the winner. In the next week, watch for Obama’s and the Dems’ rising poll numbers feed a new narrative: “The Democratic surge: will the Democrats expand their majority in Congress this November?”

  • SmutBoffin

    Jesus, does this mean that Mike Steele’s job is in jeopardy? I mean, more than it was before? This was supposed to ‘Waterloo’ for the Demoncraps, but now that it is an ‘opposite-Waterloo’, all of Mike’s/the GOP’s colossal political fuckups and messaging failures are going to be examined in the clear light of some kine of Communist…reddish…Dawn.

  • RoscoePColtraine

    I’ll stick my neck out right here right now, and predict that the GOP will soon incur the ire of the teabaggers for not getting the fucking thing repealed, like they’re promising to. Who will the GOP be without the crazies? A mere shadow of their former selves, that’s who. It’s like my old boyfriend used to say to me, “don’t be writing checks that your ass can’t cash.”

    Timely advice. But I’m really hoping the republican party stays the course right now. The cliff is coming up pretty fast.

  • RubberSoul

    It’s the same reason you see people all over the country wearing jerseys of whatever team won the World Series/Superbowl/NCAA last year.

  • S.Luggo

    I can’t believe those numbers. Can’t be true. I mean, it would be like the Minute Men flip-flopping during their defense of Iwo Jima from the Orc.

    Strangely enough, this is exactly the way that Kos said it was going to play out, based on the polling that was previously taken when Medicare and Socially Secuity were being hammered out in the Olden Days.

    Oh god. He’s going to be more smug and superior than he’s ever been.

  • progressiveinga

    Watching Morning Joke today went something like this:

    Morning Joke: “I got into politics in 1993 because Newt Gingrich…”

    progressiveinga:

    No more Morning Joke for me – so sick of these pundits and their indignation about how things were better back in the day and no acknowledgement whatsoever about what a big effin’ deal this is. Literally.

  • V572625694

    Mr Boner said, “I’m going to do everything I can to keep this bill from passing,” which apparently included a foamy-mouthed rant so intense the red in his face shone through the spray-tan orange. So that’s it, he’s shot his bolt, and should do the right thing and resign, because he’s an abject failure and a washed-up has-been.

    Cuz you know Boner’d be saying exactly that about Hopey if the bill had gone down. C’mon, Boner: do the right thing!

  • Dashboard_Buddha

    Not everyone is pleased…This from deep inside the Teabaggerfurherbunker.

  • Lazy Media

    Duh. I’ve been saying that most of these polls running against the Democrats have been about them NOT DOING SHIT, not about the actual shit they were trying to do. People were against the health care bill because it was just sitting around on its ass not passing. Everybody likes a law better than a bill.

  • Dashboard_Buddha

    Ha, feels good to imagine Boner and his buddies consoling each other with reach-arounds in his office in between loud sobbing and smacks to the face. Kinky fuckers.
