Mike Gravel and the New York Times

I know there's a lot going on that I'm not covering right now, but that's the way it is the last couple days of the week. I should be back to full power on Sunday.

But I just wanted to pop in and comment on two things.

First, Mike Gravel says Palin will run for President:

Gravel is an extreme libertarian who disagrees with Palin's politics, but seems to be objective
about her personally. This is what he had to say about Palin's nomination to run for Vice-Pres:

Secondly, the New York Times has an article on how the Dems health care bill will be expensive.

Well, no kidding. One of the most idiotic things I've seen is this idea of expanding Medicare
at the same time we're cutting Medicare funding. Make any sense? Of course not. Why are they
doing it? This guy is candid:

“Extending this successful program to those between 55 and 64 would be the largest expansion of Medicare in 44 years and would perhaps get us on the path to a single-payer model,” said Representative Anthony Weiner, Democrat of New York.
The ultimate goal is a single payer system. Period.

Why don't they just take all of our money, put it in a giant pile, and burn it?
