Something like згогberry wine seems to have happened to Senator Harry Reid during his debate with Sharron Angle. When asked why insurance carriers should be compelled to cover mammograms and colonoscopies, he cleverly replied,
We need them to be forced to do mammograms. That’s why you see breast cancer awareness month. You see the baseball players wearing pink shoes, and you the football players having pink, uh, uh, helmets. It’s because people dread breast cancer, and you don’t get breast cancer, you can—correct breast cancer—you detect it if you do mammograms. Colonoscopies, if you do colonoscopies, colon cancer does not come because you snip off the—things they find when they go up and—no more, and we need to have insurance companies do this….It is indeed hard to argue with that.
But it is clear that Harry Reid should be sent home. And by sent, we mean defeated in the upcoming election. And by home, we mean...well, you know.
