The Public Option Rorschach Test
The group Public Option Please (POP) has had an art contest to push for the Public Option in the health care bill. The public option is the vehicle for moving America to nationalized health care. The winning entry is perfect for people on all sides. The artist behind this, and those who gave it the award, are utterly clueless that this picture is a perfect argument AGAINST the public option.

The group even attributes a quote about how a healthy society enhances liberty to Thomas Jefferson. Turns out, it was actually a quote from a British Lord. The essay the quote was taken from was apparently thought of quite highly by some one named King George III. You know, the king who inspired a little revolution in these parts. A revolution that followed a certain declaration written by Thomas Jefferson.
