Lloyd Cole: Gen-X prophet

I loved it for the jangly guitars and the Eve Marie Saint references. Who knew Lloyd Cole was such a seer.

It took a lost weekend in a hotel in amsterdam
And double pneumonia in a single room
And the sickest joke was the price of the medicine
Are you laughing at me now may I please laugh along with you

Not sure of the last time I looked forward to a CBO score so much.


Labrador steps in it

Raul Labrador stepped in it on Friday.

At a town hall meeting Friday morning in Lewiston, Rep Raul Labrador (R-ID) told constituents who questioned his support for Trumpcare:

“That line is so indefensible. Nobody dies because they don’t have access to health care.”

Ok, Raul.

I expect we’ll see this clip again. And again.
