"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

For the Sake of the Children, Please Smoke

S-CHIP was signed into law this week, giving DMV-style health care to the children (defined as 30 years old and younger living with parents). The funding, supposedly, comes from hiking up taxes on packs of cigarettes-- thus discouraging smoking by making it too expensive. Of course, if Congress really wanted people to stop smoking, they wouldn't tie children's health care into depending on it.

I can see it now. With Hollywood firmly in Obama's corner, I can see them working their digital magic on Yul Brynner's commercial. "Please. Just smoke."
