Dear Readers: In celebration of Halloween, I am doing a presentation for the Young Prince’s 2nd grade class that will include vampires. As I am part Romanian, vampire lore is of special interest. In light of the news out there today (supposed deficit reduction; false promises of “opt-outs” to tempt moderates and false numbers to tempt bureaucrats; betrayal by weak-kneed GOP has-beens; fake poll data), I feel as if I, and other Tea Party Patriots and citizen activists, are facing a bill that just will not die.
I tag the Baucus proposal the Vampire Bill — Healthcare legislation that does die easily, has no soul, and will bleed families financially dry. God have mercy on us!
In the spirit of the season, other pundits also see it this way: Frankenstein’s Monster: ObamaCare’s ‘Individual Mandate’ from PJTV John Rosenburg.
Please help our efforts in killing this monstrosity. I am reprinting Lipstick Undergroud’s Senate Contact List.
MAKE EVERY PHONE CALL COUNT!!! WE NEED TO PUT A STAKE THROUGH THE HEART OF THIS LEGISLATIVE BEAST!

MUT’s Shrine News:
From Instapundit: WANT TO LIVE LONGER? Marry A Highly Educated Woman. I will NEED to tell my beloved Horemheb!
The Anchoress: An OUTSTANDING read today — Does Obama know who we are? (Detailed, so I printed it out so I could read it in the doctor’s waiting room this morning). The money quote is:
I get the impression that President Obama would like very much to say to those Americans and traditional allies who are not falling for him, “Do you know who I am?”
I wish he would, because the response would be: “Do you know who you are?”
She then details the wonderful qualities that make Americans who they are. She also cites the American Thinker article that describes President Obama as a Head-of-State instead of Head-of-Government.
Afrocity utilizes the new media to deride charges that she is a “mammy” because she is conservative. The video is EXCELLENT — check it out, and her image collection. The explanation of the mammy costume is illuminating, and in keeping with the spirit of the Halloween season. It also highlights many salient points made by the Anchoress.
Finally, Voting Female Speaks has chilling details on Obama’s “Safe School” Czar, whose hero was a lifelong Communist and NAMBLA Member. Frankly, given the choice of hanging out with Dracula or Kevin Jennings, I would feel safer with Dracula.
