* Sasha Obama discovers George W.'s old hiding spot.

These health care town hall meetings just keep getting angrier and angrier, what with the attacks on members of Congress (not to mention Michele Bachmann giving birth all over the place), so I'm almost afraid to read to the end of this story about yesterday's angry forum held by angry GOP Senators John McCain, Mitch McConnell and Kit Bond in Kansas City…
They blasted President Barack Obama’s vision of health care reform, calling it outlandishly expensive, and predicted it could lead to rationing and outsized budget deficits for years to come.
McCain, Bond and McConnell took turns pounding the Democratic plan.
Uh-oh! Sounds angry! I bet that made some members of the audience really angry! Everybody duck!
The tone of the hourlong session was subdued and the questions, including one from Mayor Mark Funkhouser, were not confrontational. The audience's only response was applause.
How the… what the… is John McCain secretly a unicorn made of ice cream? What other explanation is there?
[T]he GOP forum at Children’s Mercy was by invitation only. About 100 people — mostly medical professionals and small business owners — filled seats in the small auditorium, along with the media.
Well, I guess if you want to listen to the will of the people on contentious policies, you should pick your people pretty carefully.

It's Unconformed, but Michele Bachmann Thinks She "Probably" Gave Birth More Times Than Guy Yelling at Her
When Michele Bachmann says that it would be unconstitutional to reform health care so that poor people, unemployed workers and my cousin Gary can get medical coverage, it's not just because she's an Constitutionalitiness expert.
She's also a genuine medical expert…
At one point, Bachmann told the crowd: "I believe we have the best health care in the world… I far prefer American health care than medical care in the U.K. any day of the week," Bachmann said.
Lifting a stack of news reports about the health care problems in England, Bachmann told a story about women having to give birth in hospital hallways.
One angry male constituent yelled, "That happens here." And Bachmann quickly retorted, "I've given birth here probably more times than you, sir."
Notice how Bachmann – a mother of five — used the word "probably"? That's a medical term. It means "hemogoblin."
So, what she's really saying here is that if we reform health care, that'll wake up the hemogoblin that lives under the bridge, and he'll come and steal our grandparents in the middle of the night.
