Yes, but do they look slimy and clueless enough
Bill Curry does a good job of dissembling the Republican objections to S-CHIP. He, and his friend Colin McEnroe, on whose show Curry appears frequently, have been vigilant in emphasizing that it's not enough to point out the cruelty of Limbaugh and Malkin. It's important to get them to discuss the substance of the health care issue, instead of simply maligning a 12-year old "victim" of the current S-CHIP program.
It puts me in mind of Swift's A Modest Proposal, and we need a writer who is clever enough to portray the Republicans and the conservatives, and George Scrooge Bush, as the unfeeling, illogical monsters they are.
