More D.C. smugness

Tuesday on “Countdown With Keith Olbermann”, with guest host David Shuster, typical Washington know-it-all Craig Crawford of CQ Politics said that the proposed economic stimulus bill making its way through Congress needed more things for people to get excited about.

No, but Dr. Sam and the Managed Care Blues Band have. Don’t you think people ought to be inspired by, say, not dying because of a prevented medical error?

Again, the mainstream media remain fairly clueless.
