Remember this guy?
That's Congressman John Culberson (TX-07). I posted about him here.
Today, Rep. Culberson (R-WTF) got the attention of
MSNBC political reporter Benjy Sarlin:
Yes, you read that right. Culberson was today's winner of our increasingly frequent feature, "Really Bad Analogies." Oh but of course, trying to kill health care reform, a law that is on the books and approved by the Supreme Court, a law that will save lives and has already saved many Americans money, is exactly like fighting 9/11 terrorists.
Or to put it another way, this is GOP business as usual. The families of those who died on that day will undoubtedly appreciate Culberson's sentiments. And by appreciate I mean condemn.
During a meeting of the House Republican Caucus, Congressman John Culberson (R-TX) compared the relentless Republican effort to defund Obamacare to the heroic efforts of the passengers on United Airlines Flight 93 who overpowered terrorists who had gained control of the plane.
Playing the September 11th card: Desperate, tasteless, low.
