Dan Riehl: Man on Fire!

Every now and again, a man finds his place in the ,National Conversation Shouting Match that becomes the unmistakable hinge on which the plot turns sharply into the clear and out of the gray fogs of war. Dan Riehl has become that clarion of Debate that sucks all the air out of the room and slaps you in the face with the cold, hard reality of where your muddy thinking is leading you:

Isn't It Time To Euthanize Reid's Wife?

I'm not sure I quite understand this, given that cost is so important as a burden to taxpayers when it comes to health care. If Democrats want so badly to abort babies because of it, why are we bothering with someone who has a broken neck and back at 69? It sounds to me like she's pretty well used up and has probably been living off the taxpayers for plenty of years to begin with. Aren't we at least going to get a vote on it?

Now, of course that firebrand of hot, burning Irony was too much for the Alanis Morrisette Party, so after their hue and cry, he doubles down:

I wish I knew those babies way back when. I'd have taken a coat hanger to them! I guess that's more their style. Still, they front for the bastards that will allow our loved ones to die at 69, or 70 because it costs too much to save, or care for them.

These people have no principles. They have no right to take exception to my post. You can not advocate killing children to save money while allowing severely injured 69 year-old people to live. The actuarial argument actually benefits the young. Unless, of course, they figure it will be mostly poor black and hispanics, so what the hell!!

A most satisfying Saturday morning, courtesy of a man who is taking the fight right down to the mat. Go give him your hearty support. The InternTrolls are so cute to watch as they gasp for air!


Update: A Sissy Link!


Don't you dare tut and gasp at the debating device that Dan has used, or I'll be very disappointed in the I.Q. of my readership!!

Besides, until Velociman is thoroughly filtered and pure and back to blogging, we'll have to let rough men like Dan Reihl do the hellish job of holding up the mirror in a Congress full of vampires.


Update the 3rd: A Dan Link!

A pure virginal Velociman is forthcoming? I shudder at the thought.

Wait a minute! Give me a moment while I fondly reminisce the tender mercies supplied by the Left when Tony Snow-- a true gentle man, fun, sober in judgment and liberal in humor-- had to temerity to simply be a Conservative dying of colo-rectal cancer. A man with no power to pass laws or impinge on liberty, and with no desire to ever do so.

Yes, the good will and warmth that issued forth from the Left during his personal crisis is still with Tony Snow's wife and children today, I'm sure.

I'm sure Sean Penn got all his political cues from that congenial display of political civility. . .

That said, I've already given up on the US. That happened when the 2008 elections came down to Hitlery, Insane McCain, and the Obaminator.

Stick a fork in the US. It's done.
