So WE'RE Clueless?
San Diego Union-Trib

One of the most striking aspects about the left-wing blogs that have assumed a major place of influence in recent years is their unlimited self-confidence. From Iraq to trade to how to win a presidential campaign, these blogs assert that oblivious Democrats, conniving Republicans and the clueless mainstream media just don't get it – that they are mired in past assumptions and just don't understand how the world really works nowadays.

Now along comes a story about some of these lefty bloggers that is so flabbergasting it demands this observation: So we're clueless?

This week, Associated Press reported that “a loosely formed coalition of left-leaning bloggers are trying to band together to form a labor union they hope will help them receive health insurance (and) conduct collective bargaining.”

Um, just whom will they be bargaining with? Do these “left-leaning bloggers” understand that collective bargaining involves employees and employers – and that no one hired them to blog?
Or are they just beginning to edge up to the argument that grateful taxpayers should pay for their health benefits?

Hey, that's how to solve the health crisis: Have every American start a blog and be given health coverage for the effort. We expect this to soon become a major plank in the Kucinich-for-president campaign.

It sounds like something that leftists would do. They're NOT nature's smartest creatures.

Jeez DONAL, using the illogic of these lefty bloggers you and all of our "blog friends" could digitally march on Aetna or State Farm and demand coverage.

Let's see, the preexisting conditions would be:

1. Sore butts and fingertips
2. Blood poressure issues arising from dealing with the lefties

Wasn't this Bush's idea, too? A kind of cooperative between businesses in a community all bunching together to get a healthcare plan?

hey Donal,
No, not every anon is Les but that guy is right.

But I gotta love the fact that you guys will believe just about everything. It is kind of cute and endearing in a very strange way. Just like my new puppy dog.

Anyway, back to my point, anon is absolutely right. The wingnut welfare plan is for people to form loose associations and negotiate for health insurance.
