NYT reporter David Kirkpatrick confirms what Miles Mogulescu has been saying:

No frim-fram sauce for you!

1. That just means he's smarter than you.

2. Wait 'til he does something.

3. It's Clinton's fault.

4. Hillary would have been worse.

5. He had to say that.

6. Look! Over there! Sarah Palin!

7. I trust the President!

and the winnner:

8. The real problem is the filibuster!

And this poignant paragraph:

For months I've been reporting in The Huffington Post that President Obama made a backroom deal last summer with the for-profit hospital lobby that he would make sure there would be no national public option in the final health reform legislation. (See here, here and here). I've been increasingly frustrated that except for an initial story last August in the New York Times, no major media outlet has picked up this important story and investigated further.

That's odd! Or not.
