Once when spending a leisurely afternoon on the waterfront in Savannah, Georgia – a wonderful place, by the way, to spend a leisurely afternoon – I saw a street entertainer, a guy who rode a very tall unicycle and juggled, start his efforts to draw a crowd by yelling, “I’m going to hurt myself. Does anyone want to watch?”
I feel very much the same way about the way labor unions are determined to punish Democratic Members of Congress, even their most loyal friends, if they voted against Obama’s health care reform monstrosity. The case in point is the decision of the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO to withhold its endorsement of Representative Tim Holden in Pennsylvania’s 17th Congressional District.
“I bring reason to your ears, and, in language as plain as ABC, hold up truth to your eyes.” Thomas Paine, December 23, 1776
