One of Godzilla's most famous traits was his ability to do massive damage with just the power of his breath, and so we dinosaurs have created an award that recognizes the biggest blowhards we can find.
This week's winner is...
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi! The Speaker wins for this impressive rant against insurance companies brought to us by The Hill:
“They are the villains in this,” Pelosi said of private insurers. “They havebeen part of the problem in a major way. They are doing everything in their power to stop a public option from happening. And the public has to know that. They can disguise their arguments any way they want, but the fact is that they don’t want the competition.”…
“It’s almost immoral what they are doing,” added Pelosi, who stood outside her office long after her press conference ended to continue speaking to reporters, even as aides tried in vain to usher her inside. “Of course they’ve been immoral all along in how they have treated the people that they insure with pre-existing conditions, you know, the litany of it all.”
Yes, Speaker Pelosi it's all the fault of all those evil people trying to make money selling something people actually want. Neither your constant bickering amongst yourselves and utter failure to do anything productive about the economy nor the general satisfaction most Americans have with their current health care have anything to do with it.
For that, we bestow upon you this week's Godzilla Award.
Congratulations Speaker Pelosi!
