Dick Cheney is releasing statements (which sort of makes up for four years of mismanagement, no?) to differentiate his administration’s healthcare plan with the one being pushed by the Kerry-Edwards team.
Cheney explains: “This problem doesn’t start in the waiting room. It doesn’t start in the operating room. The problem starts in the courtroom.” (One can only assume that is a veiled reference to something the guys on the hunting trip picked up from Scalia.)
“When it comes to the legal crisis in American health care, the Kerry-Edwards ticket is on the side of personal-injury trial lawyers, and the Bush-Cheney ticket is on the side of doctors and patients.”
Wait. Are the doctors and patients usually on the same side in these cases? Cheney added that Edwards “is a trial lawyer who is very experienced at suing doctors.”
But wait? Who was Edwards suing on behalf of? Patients right? And the Bush-Cheney ticket is on the side of patients. So they must be on the side of Edwards?
