If it makes you happy...

What had Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-OH) screaming like a Banshee yesterday?

Oh right, the false initial report that some 30 million or so of her fellow citizens, including millions with pre-existing medical conditions, would continue to go without health insurance coverage.

(Rumor has it that Rep. Schmidt later gave Meg Ryan a good run for her money with her reaction to the House's contemptible contempt vote against Attorney General Holder).

Imagine what could be accomplished if Rep. Schmidt and her colleagues put half as much enthusiasm into finding common-ground solutions to problems like health care, the budget, entitlement reform, and the economy instead of gainsaying everything that Democrats propose and manufacturing crises.
