Dad Needs To Be In Charge

Colbert snuck up on me yesterday. His The Word segment (click below) unfolded with surprising elegance to lay bare the absurd parental rights mentality.

Slowly and insidiously, his winger character demands what is at the core of that movement — absolute control over ideas presented to their kids. Anything at all different from what the parents feel or think is evil. There are good yucks all the way through to the end of this short clip.

Caritas is the 2nd largest health care system in all of New England. The people of Massachusetts in particular rely on Caritas to provide quality health care at reasonable prices. Martha Coakley is involved in approving the sale of Caritas to Cerberus Capital Management.

A quick look reveals that Cerberus is part of the same Wall Street Capitalist Jerks who have run our economy into the ground and made billions in the process.

And that's not at all. Cerberus is best-know for having DAN QUAYLE as a board member, senior adviser, and Chairman of of their global operations. Yes, Dan Quayle - obviously a man known for caring so much about the little people.

It's unbelievable to me that the people of Massachusetts will let this deal go through. Selling Caritas Christi to Dan Quayle is not my idea of fair, accessible, and quality health care for all. Sounds more like a bunch of chumps trying to get rich while the rest of us suffer.

Shame on you Martha Coakley if you surrender our health care so easily to people who only care about their bank accounts.
