Game Recognize Game

Back when the public option collapsed in the Senate last fall after President LIEberman declared he wouldn't vote for any hcr bill that contained a public option, I noted how supposed progressive champions of the public option were unwilling to pledge to vote against a bill without one. In short it was all kabuki theater meant to shield those supposed progressives from backlash for the failure to include a public option.

Well now the clearest indication that I was right has come in the form of one of those supposed progressive heros, Jay Rockerfeller, coming out against passing a public option through reconcilliation.

We've been punked folks, it was never going to happen.
