The Sidestep

Watching Obama discuss his plans for health care tonight, reminded me of Charles Durning performing "The Sidestep" in the movie Best Little Whorehouse in Texas ...

I didn't understand a darn thing he said.

Adorable comparison.

I don't get it either. I did watch a couple of people talk during a news conference on what a catastrophic illness did to their family... and they had insurance. It was amazing. One family lost their home over 36,000 worth of medical bills that the insurance company wouldn't cover because it was considered "cosmetic." It was mostly antinausea meds for her chemo. Can you imagine someone telling you that those drugs weren't needed?

Yeah, BTW, we are lucky there is a RL right here in JC.
