The Weirdest Move by a Guy Named Lynch Since ‘Twin Peaks’

I don’t think people were counting on this flip:

Rep. Stephen Lynch, says a proposed parliamentary move to pass health-care reform would be “disingenuous” and harm the credibility of Congress.

In a sign of how tough it’s been for Pelosi to round up votes for the massive bill, Lynch – a South Boston Democrat who supported a House reform package last year – said he’ll probably vote against a key Senate version of the legislation, unless unexpected major changes are made soon.

A Massachusetts Democrat is backing away from the health-care bill. Thank you, Sen. Scott Brown.
