This blog mainly focuses on sports, but I couldn’t let tonight’s historic Congressional vote on an overhaul of health care go without some sort of comment. And to find a photo of a Capitol police officer standing watch in front of the dome while wearing a ball cap, well, all the better.
As a journalist by trade, I’m going to keep private my opinions on the reform issue itself. But I must note that the conservatives who loathe the thought of Democrat-driven health care reform must be eating their livers. And I’m also guessing those on the right would rather pluck their eyes out than watch a triumphant Nancy Pelosi walking confidently on Capitol Hill.
In politics, as in baseball, there are winners and there are losers. Tonight’s vote was without question a victory for the Democrats and President Obama, and a loss for the GOP.
