Thoughts on last night's debate. EDITED (again) (and again) TO ADD (yet) A(nother) LINK

TRANSPLANTS are equivilent to cosmetic surgery and shouldn't be covered in a generic plan? ARE YOU SHITTING ME?

"'Health'"? Really? (Phantom Scribbler just pointed out Julie's post on the scare quotes which actually says what I meant to.)

And here's what Cecily has to say about it.

And Dooce points to Alexa's post.

Julie and Cecily and Alexa. Thank you for saying it when I couldn't.

I'm quite confident he meant IMPLANTS. Everyone misspeaks; I give Obama credit for not making an issue of it.

I think he was talking about treatments for balding men.

We all know that health plans cover vi@gra but not birth control. But covering abortion instead of hair implants would just be weird.

sigh, indeed.

i missed the part about transplants. why biden's hair keeps coming up is a huge mystery to me. that is not exactly the most pressing health care issue of the day, and i fail to see any connection to any other real issues, either.
