Pyrrhic Victory?

I'm not getting any warm thrills over the passage of "health care reform," because I doubt if it will actually do much good for the people who really need it, and the health-insurance mandate will provide a club for the Republicans to beat their betters with for some time. I can't see that many Democrats covered themselves with honor in this process and I suspect that some really, really shitty deals were cut so as to keep Saint Barry from suffering a catastrophic defeat.

This said, surely this development will cause some brownshirt somewhere to have a coronary. That's may be a very small thing, but it's a good one.
