We should have said it sooner: Thank-you, thank you, thank you! Your tireless effort to herd the super-cool hep cats of Mock, Paper, Scissors is probably what saved the Affordable Care Act.
When faced with the wrath of the Internet’s Incorrigible Band of Spitballers, Grandpa Walnuts joined the strong, principled Republican Women of the Senate (Collins and Murkowski) and we beat this thing dead, like a rented mule.
I cannot say it enough: you took us all from being slackers spitballing the pontificating poltroons from our sofas and turned the Thunderbolt Grease Slapper into a well-oiled, phone-calling machine. (Metaphors, how do they work?) We all owe you a debt of gratitude. (I hope that the terms on that debt are very competitive.)
And as long as we are thanking people: Scissorheads, take a bow. The statistics on the Activist tab for the last six months have been amazing; you guys have been dialing your elegant fingers down to nubbins. I don’t think I’m exaggerating much when I say that our citizen-activist efforts saved lives.
We’ve sort of won this battle, but there will be more to come. Comrade Preznint Stupid’s only tactic is to Gish Gallop us, and we must be ready to fight him till Hell freezes over (Cheney has to put on a hat?) and then fight him on the ice (or in my case, on the rocks with a twist).
Anyone want to join the MPS Activism pep squad? I understand Tax Reform is next up at bat and so you know that the Big Screw is coming.
