How Not to Make Important Decisions


Michael Tomasky writes: “A health bill will likely have a very weak public option or it won’t have one at all. But liberals will have to battle for that bill as if it’s life and death (which in fact it will be for thousands of Americans), because its defeat would constitute a historic victory for the birthers and the gun-toters and the Hitler analogists.” I suppose choosing sides this way is easier than thinking through the merits.
