How Bad Is It?

So, I'm driving home on Thursday and I'm catching the very end of Rush Limbaugh's broadcast when a spunky liberal caller manages to get through. This caller noted that, despite the financial burden borne by National Guardsmen currently on active duty in Iraq, the bankruptcy reform bill offers no military exemptions. Then, he pointed out that the homestead exemptions, used by the fabulously wealthy to shield assets during bankruptcy proceedings, were being maintained. Having laid out these two issues, he asked Rush to defend the bill.

Rush's response? He refused to accept the caller's premise because he couldn't believe the bill lacked active-duty protections.

Do you see what this means? It means that this bill is so bad that even Rush Limbaugh can't believe it! It's so bad that to support it he has to imagine that he is supporting a different bill.

Now that is what I call a bad bill.
