 The momentum of rats leaving the ship has begun. Elections in November and 2012 will get rid of the rats that are left. I kind of like drawing and quartering better, it seems more effective, but that has gone out of style.

I can't help but wonder who gave Stupak the 'it's time for great sacrifices' speech prior to the health care vote.  

I wonder too if Obama has even bothered to call Stupak to thank him for falling on his sword.
