Yes, I’ve been on C-SPAN2

Category: Life

So, yesterday I’m watching the health care debate, which is actually really fun to watch, on C-SPAN2, and kind of playing World of Warcraft. I’m in the the middle of a bit of a pitched battle, I’m pretty focused on killing demons, but I hear my name on the tv. I look up and there’s Senator Bill Nelson talking about me and the Medicaid cuts, how damaging said cuts would be to me and all Floridians with disabilities.

Now, I’ll be honest, apparently I was given a heads up via e-mail that Senator Nelson was going to mention me, but being that I was engaged in pitched battles with demons, I totally missed the e-mail. Fortunately, I’m a giant politics nerd, and I didn’t miss it.

I have to say, as a giant politics nerd, being mentioned on the Senate floor, being covered on CSPAN-2, was really fucking cool. Yes, the circumstances are awful, but you have to take joy where you can get it.

    Michael,
    If I was Blaster to your Master in the Thunderdome, I would have this to say, to paraphrase Sir Isaac Newton. “A giant stands on my shoulders.” Make no mistake about this. We are about to enter a pitched battle of politics and this will really count. And you are in the cage! The basic principle at stake is defending the fact that we have the resources to take care of all of us. No exceptions. It is only a matter of how expansive we are willing to define the word “we.” With every word you contribute, you are killing demons, my friend.
