Sane Pub Head Count

OK, maybe 'sane' is a stretch, but by my count there were exactly three Republicans who came off looking like they actually gave a damn about finding a solution during the health care summit: Paul Ryan, Jon Kyl and Tom Coburn. That's it.

The rest were a bunch of grandstanding buffoons. Boehner in particular seemed like the biggest shmuck on the planet. The petulant hangdog expression on his face after Pelosi tore him a new one on abortion funding at the end of the day was priceless.

Which is not to say there wasn't plenty of grandstanding and buffoonery from the Dem side of the table (my particular favorite was Dodd saying he was going to be brief so Patty Murray could use some of his time... jump cut to ten minutes later, as Dodd is still going full throttle about, err, something or other...) but it wasn't an epidemic the way it was among the Pubs.
