Having It Both Ways II

More

On the left, a tirade against the posturing of Jane Hamsher on health insurance reform. Money quote:

Several weeks ago, Jane threw in her lot with Grover Norquist to defeat the healthcare bill.

But apparently, she didn't mean it. Because now, her website FireDogLake wants Martha Coakley in the Senate so that Coakley's 60th vote will allow the bill to passa bill that Jane detested.

Maybe that bill wasn't so bad after all, Jane? Perhaps you were manipulating your readers and the rest of the blogosphere with your "Look At Me" histrionics? Because you can't be for the bill now when you teamed up with Grover Norquist just a few weeks ago to defeat it. The election of Scott Brown will accomplish the EXACT same thing that your unholy union with Grover was meant to accomplish.
