One Shining Moron

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi emerged from the last Democratic caucus meeting late yesterday wielding a sledgehammer-sized gavel. She used last night  when the House passed another  health care entitlement program.

“It was used in the enactment of the Medicare law,” Pelosi told reporters, “I will use it this evening when we cast a very successful for this important legislation.”

The gavel was lent to her by Rep. John Dingell (D), who used the same gavel when the House voted on Medicare in 1965.

The fact that Medicare is billions in debt, with possible insolvency in 5 years, and doctors dropping Medicare patients more and more, I am not sure I would be using that gavel as a symbol for  one shining moment…
