QOTD: "Perhaps it's anecdotal, but it seems to be a pretty common anecdote -- outside the Beltway, no one cares. The shutdown, the debt ceiling -- it's not even on normal peoples' radar...

In 2014, the fact that their insurer is dumping their health insurance plan and making them pay twice as much for a crummier one -- now that will get their attention. They will have an opinion on that, plus they will be plenty interested in who is responsible for it. And does anyone want to guess who is responsible for ensuring that the Scarlet "O" of Obamacare is tattooed right onto the forehead of every Democrat running in 2014? Three guesses, and if your first two are John and Lindsey you are wrong, wrong, wrong.

This wasn't a defeat. Sure, the Democrats will cluck about it, and their media serfs will repeat the Journolist talking points du jour, but it doesn't matter. They won nothing except the chance to allow Obamacare to fail even more spectacularly.

Congratulations, President Pyrrhus. A couple more "wins" like this one and we'll be on our way to fundamentally changing America back." --Kurt Schlichter
