John Romano tries to make sense of Florida Republicans’ arguments against expanding Medicaid to implement the Affordable Care Act. He can’t.

House members talk forcefully and, at times, poetically about this fight. And yet if you listen closely, you realize they are talking in nonsensical circles.

Representative after representative stood on the House floor and decried the amount of money the federal government proposes to spend on health care, and yet these same officials support Gov. Rick Scott’s lawsuit to — wait for it — force the federal government to send us more health care money.

And when it came time to plug budget holes for uncompensated hospital care, legislators used general revenue funds that will allow them to draw down another $600 million in additional — wait for it — federal funds.

Orin Kerr:

If I understand the history correctly, in the late 1990s, the President was impeached for lying about a sexual affair by a House of Representatives led by a man who was also then hiding a sexual affair, who was supposed to be replaced by another Congressman who stepped down when forced to reveal that he too was having a sexual affair, which led to the election of a new Speaker of the House who now has been indicted for lying about payments covering up his sexual contact with a boy. Yikes.

Yep, that pretty much sums up the flim-flam.

One more time: Republican Family Values (TM) are a con, a fraud, and a flim-flam, hot air you can use to dry your socks, as a sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal, signifying nothing.

The only question is this: which “family values” Republican will be the next to be hoist on his own pe-er, um-tard?

Give me an honest lech every day of the week and twice on Sundays.

In more news of the Smart One, Shaun Mullen discusses the Smart One’s decision to hide behind the flag when called on his saying that, knowing what we know now, he would still support the Great and Glorious Patriotic War for a Lie in Iraq.

Here’s a snippet, in which words are not minced, but the Smart One is:

After tying his shoelaces together and falling on his face, Bush opined that Hillary would say the same thing. That is demonstrably false, although like most senators (but not Barack Obama) she was for the war in 2003 before she was against it, finally settling on the line during the 2008 Democratic primary that “If we knew then what we know now, I would never have voted to give this president the authority.”

No, what burned the red, white and blue ass of this veteran is that Jeb Bush defaulted to cowardice. Because, doncha know, any criticism of the troops and by extension his former commander-in-chief brother is unpatriotic — a battle-tested, if vile, tactic from the Republican playbook to tamp down dissent when it threatens to come uncomfortably close to the truth.

If this response has the ring of familiarity, it is because President Bush, and Vice President Cheney in particular, used it early and often in calling into question anyone and everyone who opposed that fool’s mission, which wasted nearly 4,500 American and perhaps 110,000 Iraqi lives, left the country in far worse shape than when the war began, further destabilized one of the world’s most volatile regions and handed Iran — and by extension Al Qaeda and an emergent ISIS — an enormous strategic advantage.

Do read the rest.
