DIANNY RANTS: How the Worm has Turned 3

Rant Logo v2

So, the ass-covering has kicked into hyper drive.

Senate and House Democrats are starting to get a little bit scared that the 2014 Midterms will require them to run on their records.

Oh, noes!!!

Not that!!

Anything but that!!

Naturally, these brave, principled folks are choosing instead to run from their record.

Specifically their staunch, die-hard, no holds barred support for the intensely unpopular Obamacare.

Obamacare is not an albatross.

Obamacare is not a millstone.

Obamacare is a great big neon target on the heads of every single Democrat in Congress.

They are fluttering about like wet hens desperately searching for something to hide this neon target.

The American people, by a large majority, hate this law.

Millions of Americans have lost the health insurance that they liked and were perfectly happy with.

Millions of Americans are discovering that the “free” health insurance they were expecting with the passage of Obamacare is not only not free, but super expensive.

People are angry.

And when people are angry, they tend to want a little payback against the people who pissed them off.

And there stand the Democrats.

They created this mess.

Every single one of them.

They voted for it.

Every single one of them.

Ah, yes. Remember four years ago?

Remember how fat and happy they were?


They got such pleasure out of marching past the throng of citizens who took to the streets of Capital Hill to protest against Obamacare.

They were so pleased with themselves, weren’t they?

Pleased as punch.

And when President Obama signed Obamacare into law?

Remember their smiling faces?


Oh, how happy they were!

Smug. Fat and happy.

They weren’t happy for the United States of America.

No, not at all.

They weren’t happy because Obamacare was going to work. They had no idea what was in the law.

No, what made them happy was finally, after all these years, they did it!

They finally did it!

By hook and by crook. Through backroom deals, and fat, juicy bribes, they got this monstrosity passed.

And how happy they were.

Grinning like drunken fools over their own underhanded, unscrupulous victory.

My, how the worm has turned.

Americans thought the Obamacare bill was bad.

Now, it’s “law of the land.” And Americans have only begun to feel the pain.

Their work hours are getting cut.

Cancellation letters are pouring in.

Doctors they loved are no longer part of their “network.”

And the American people are furious.

So where are these happy, joyful Democrats? The smug, arrogant assholes who strode through the crowd of protesters laughing in their faces?

Where are they?

Honey, they are running as fast as their feet can carry them — away from the disastrous website, away from the waivers and exemptions, away from their vote for this law they never bothered to read.

They had to pass it for us to find out what’s in it.

And now we know.

And those grinning Cheshire cats have turned tail and run.

The Democrats have a serious problem.

See, usually, when a Liberal Democrat policy is enacted, the creeps in Congress who vote for it have plenty of time to get to safety before the shit-storm consequences hit the fan.

Not with Obamacare.

Like the suicide-bomb instructor who detonated himself in front of his students, these Democrats were caught with Obamacare still in their smug, grubby hands when it blew up in their faces.

And they are petrified.

No, not because of the harm that Obamacare is causing the nation.

Not because their constituents are being put through the wringer.


They’re petrified because their fingerprints are still all over Obamacare.

These Democrats aren’t smiling anymore.

My, how the worm has turned.

And they only have a matter of months to somehow succeed in convincing their voters that the train wreck known as Obamacare has nothing to do with them.

I don’t like their chances.

    Succintly and to the point, Dianny. I hope and pray all their asses get kicked out, and some of the republicans too, especially Boehner, Cantor, and McCarthy.

    Is Steny Hoyer actually carrying Nancy Pelosi’s purse for her (while holding hands with Mr. Lewis)? I mean, seriously?
