Welcome Back, Keith

He was on a 2 week vacation and I didn't realize how much I missed him until his show today. It's as if he saved up 2 weeks of anger to spill it all out in this one hour show. Most of it went into his Special Comment. This one is as good as his best and one that proves, once and for all, that he is the master of cable news.

He takes on health care and all the Republicans bought by the industry, backed up with numbers. But he doesn't stop with them, he moves on to the Blue Dog Democrats who are holding up health care in the senate and house and gives numbers on them, how they represent not the people who elected them but the big business that has given them millions. Keith makes one hard hitting comment here when he says that the industry is spending 1.4 million dollars per day in lobbying against health care reform: "My god! How much must they be making!" They make those millions and billions by denying you treatment, by letting you suffer and die. Talk about blood money.
