Jim Moran is Having a Hard Time Up There
Jim Moran, the Congressman representing the 8th District of Virginia, is having a hard time on the podium. He said that he had spent four hours listening to a reading of technical language of the legislation, and the crowd responded, sarcastically, "Awww."
And when he mentioned "the public option," he got about a quarter of the audience on its feet cheering--not a good sign. And when he said the words "Howard Dean," that got more boos than cheers, too.
I can't help but wonder what the reaction would be if he were to say, "I think we should cure cancer." As noted here yesterday, cures are popular. Politics, not so much.
