The Morning Quote

Nothin’ goin’ on around here.

“Americans have choices. And they’ve got to make a choice. And so maybe rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love and they want to go spend hundreds of dollars on that, maybe they should invest in their own health care. They’ve got to make those decisions themselves.”

–Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R – UT), who as you may recall was chased outta his townhall by a hoard of angry Mormons, and that takes some doing.

Steve M at No More Mister Nice Blog sees this as very strategic (I think he’s right): Wingnuttia will read iPhone and in their mind hear ‘Obamaphone’ and will get their racist/classist game on.

    Well, of COURSE, since no medical expenses ever exceed the $700 or so for an iPhone. I’m glad Jason cleared that up.

    It’s easy to say crap like this when your healthcare is paid for by the taxpayers.

    Remember “Friedman units”? Tom Friedman’s “…just six more months” in Iraq…?

    Do we now have “iPhone units” being about $700? “Apple units”?
