De rigueur mortis

Hard to believe they aren\’t popular any more.

Not that it got much attention in the reporting but this seemed rather pertinent in the latest NBC news poll:

There was also support for the Democratic push to let people sign up for a public health-care plan that would compete with private companies, one of the toughest issues in the health-care debate. Three in four people said a public plan is extremely or quite important.

Considering this is one area where Obama is somewhat inclined to be, you know, liberal, it is something to support him on, especially since the poll goes on to say when right-wing bullcrap talking points from Frank Luntzville are tossed around support remains prevailing but diminished.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.
