She Does Have A Point

Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu was on NPR recently, where she had this to say about polls which show a majority of Americans favor a public option.

"I think if you asked, 'Do you want a public option but it would force the government to go bankrupt,' people would say 'No,'" she said.

Well, she does have a point.

Just like if you asked "would you like a nice cold beer?" most people would say "Yes." However, if you ask "would you like a nice cold beer that Mary Landrieu has peed in?" most folks will say "No."

(I believe the lone "yes" came from Sen. David Vitter.)

Or if you ask would you vote for Mary Landrieu, many Louisianans answer "yes."
But if you ask "Would you vote for Mary Landrieu knowing that she is kinda dumb and thinks that you can be easily manipulated by tricky questions?" you get a lot more "No's"
