‘Stuck-on’ Stupak… stuck on Stupak’s EO.

Turns out that the Obama administration is taking Stupak’s Executive Order as seriously as… well, everybody else:

President Obama signed the Senate health care bill into law Tuesday. He did not sign the executive order on abortion negotiated with Michigan Democratic Congressman Bart Stupak in an 11th-hour arrangement that may well have saved the entire health care reform effort.

A White House official told Fox, Obama will not sign the Executive Order Tuesday and has set no specific date to do so. Stupak predicted Obama would sign the order later this week. The White House said only that Obama would sign the order “soon.”

Now, it’s like this. It’s one thing to be a prostitute. It’s another thing to be a cheap prostitute. It’s yet a third thing to be a cheap prostitute who accepts Monopoly money. But to be a cheap prostitute who gets stiffed on your Monopoly money? That takes skill.

PS: I recognize that Hot Air has a valid argument that eventually the President will stop tormenting Stupak and give him his Monopoly money, but AoSHQ’s implicit rejoinder that Stupak hasn’t degraded himself enough for it yet (he’s getting there) has a certain truth there, too.

PPS: My apologies to prostitutes, of course.

    Since it is official that Mr. Stupak accepted a bribe for his vote, when is the AG of Mr. Stupak’s state going to serve the warrant for his arrest and proceed with impeachment charges against him? Or doesn’t the law apply in Washington D.C. anymore? At the very least, Ms. Pelosi should scathingly admonish him in front of the House for accepting the bribe because that certainly is worse that just uttering the words, “You lie!”.

    And since Mr. Obama saw fit to offer the bribe, perhaps someone needs to bring charges against him. Or is he above the law, too?

    If the AGs of each state who’s Congressman accepted a bribe for their vote on HCR each pursued charges for bribery against them, maybe some of these shenannigans would stop. Otherwise, what’s the law for? Horsetrading in this situation is nothing less than bribery, plain and simple.
