Three predictions about the House’s post-Obamacare plans.

In order:

  • If Obamacare is overthrown, the House GOP will not receive any ungrudging positive press from the Media over having contingency plans in place for that result; but if Obamacare is upheld, they will be endlessly criticized for it.
  • The Democrats will make no real contingency plans whatsoever.
  • If Obamacare is overthrown, the lack of said contingency plans will not be held against the Democrats by the Media, despite the fact that ‘hope for the best, plan for the worst*’ is a cliche for a reason.

Just saying.

*’Worst’ and ‘best’ are here meant in terms of ‘worst and best for Democrats,’ of course.  In real life, the worst-case scenario for the country will be Obamacare being judged fully constitutional, and the best-case one the one where Obamacare has its head cut off and put on a pike as a warning to the next ten generations that some legislative initiatives come at too high a price.

    That was almost a classical reference, there. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0n2vurSBIQ

    Babylon 5 was a good show. My issue with it, came down to it being in syndication and being on the wrong timeslot at the wrong time. So I kept missing it in order to keep up with other shows. After awhile I gave up. I still caught an episode here and there, but that pissed me off because I didn’t know what the hell was going on. I’ve missed up to 80% of the show.

    Good thing there’s DVDs, isn’t it? If I ever retire, there’s about five years of movies and TV shows I want to catch up on…

    I’m with BigGator, I’ve seen some episodes here and there, since at the time I was working long hours on the road. Someday I’ll have time to catch up on these things. I have seen most of Farscape though, so there’s that.

  • Catseye says:

    I’m in the same boat as JeffV, I was working and missed almost all of it.

    OK, I’m pathetic. I’ve just finished my FOURTH complete (including the movies) run-through of the entire series. It was a favorite of mine when it was new (desktop scheme, even), and I just think it’s the best long-arc series ever. Of course, that’s why those of you who couldn’t chase it every week gave up. Find it, and watch it (first season is sloooow). It’s Space Opera at it’s finest. There’s even a website that saved JMS AOL chats – it’s a commentary done in nearly real time (as the episodes aired). http://www.midwinter.com/lurk/countries/us/eplist.html

    Jeff, you’re only one complete run-through ahead of me.

    I watched every little bit of B5, and bought the movies and Seasons 1-4. (I prefer to forget Season 5).
