A bloc of pro-life Democrats turned out to be the linchpin to passage of the Senate's massive health insurance overhaul Sunday night, as President Obama cemented a 219-212 victory with a pledge to issue an executive order "clarifying" abortion language in the Senate bill.

Dems will be Dems.

Two competing interests in today's historic vote on government-run health care: The Tyranny Revolutionaries and their useful idiots, and those Freedom-Loving Revolutionaries that will not go down without a fight.

We offer a heartfelt Ushanka Tip to the latter, and a big fat Ushanka middle finger to the former.

We finished Solzhenitsyn's In The First Circle today. Here was a discussion between two prisoners on page 667 that we found earily relevent to today's vote for tyranny. Of course, they are two Russians who share the common Gulag dream of the US coming to rescue them.

"You have to understand that the more prosperous, the more free and easy life becomes in the West, the less ready Western man is to fight for fools who have allowed themselves to be oppressed. And they are right; they haven't opened their own gates to the robber band. We have deserved our regime and leaders; we got ourselves into this mess, and we must get ourselves out of it."
"Their turn will come."
"Of course their turn will come. There is a destructive force in prosperity. To prolong it for a year, a day, a man will sacrifice not only all that belongs to others but all that is sacred. He will defy the dictates of common prudence.

About 30,000 rallied yesterday in DC against government healthcare. Here is a pic lifted from Nice Deb's site:

Not one mass-produced sign. Not one union-provided bus. Not one liberal progressive communist in sight.

Mark Steyn at NRO discusses today's vote in his article, Welcome to Deemocracy:

Obamacare will result in the creation of at least 16,500 new jobs. Doctors? Nurses? Ha! Dream on, suckers. That’s 16,500 new IRS agents, who’ll be needed to check whether you — yes, you, Mr. and Mrs. Hopendope of 27 Hopeychangey Gardens — are in compliance with the 15 tax increases and dozens of new federal mandates the Deemocrats are about to “deem” into existence. This will be the biggest expansion of the IRS since World War II — and that’s change you can believe in. This is what “health” “care” “reform” boils down to: fewer doctors, longer wait times, but more bureaucrats.

May we suggest the Democrat Party change their name to: The Party (P). It would be worse than the vote today to continue to ignore the communist inspirations of the DNC. For the three people out there that still doubt us, watch this clip of Senator Brown (P-OH) found at NewZeal:

Unfortunately, we concur with IOTW's Mr. Pinko, and appreciate the kind words about our hat:

Wait ’til November?

I don’t want to hear all this crap about wait until November, etc… What’s going to happen in November? A bunch of Republicans are going to get voted in. And they are NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING!
This law will NEVER be REPEALED! And despite the bitching, moaning and anger, the majority of Americans are just going to go along with the Socialist program like the asshole sheep that we are.

I will now wear a big fur hat (courtesy of Ushanka) and call everyone comrade. Can’t wait to see the looks I get in the Post Office tomorrow.

Mr. Pinko, you'll notice that the hat keeps your ears warm as you wait in line at the USPS. That benefit is transferrable (no pre-conditions) to lines for an MRI, bread or a job too. A good comrade gets every little bit of use out of his few possessions!
