I know that this wasn't written in RESPONSE to the recent health care "debate", but it seems mightily pertinent.
I'm just waiting for the fell deity that empowered the Bill Christols and Rush Limbaughs of the world to take back the golden guitar so that the people can quit dancing.

These quote from a Time article by Joe Klein best sums up my current distaste:

"The philosophically supple party that existed as recently as George H.W. Bush's presidency has been obliterated. The party's putative intellectuals — people like the Weekly Standard's William Kristol — are prosaic tacticians who make precious few substantive arguments but oppose health-care reform mostly because passage would help Barack Obama's political prospects."

"... but there was a difference in those times: the crazies were a faction — often a powerful faction — of the Republican Party, but they didn't run it." 

"Some righteous anger seems called for, but that's not Obama's style. He will have to come up with something, though — and he will have to do it without the tiniest scintilla of help from the Republican Party."
