health care dog and pony show, or obakabuki as someone called it

Too much too say, but here's one great piece of info from the Politico:

"Republicans are watching the clock closely as Democrats have talked for nearly twice as long as they have so far this morning. Before Democratic Rep. Jim Clyburn started talking, the time of possession was:

Democrats: about 74 minutes
Republicans: about 37 minutes"

so much for bipartisan, eh?

The Washington Times has updated the minutes counted.
"By the end of the televised event, Mr. Obama had spoken for 119 minutes - nine minutes more than the 110 minutes consumed by 17 Republicans. The 21 Democratic lawmakers used 114 minutes, giving the president and his supporters a whopping 233 minutes, according to a "talk clock" kept by GOP aides. "

What a joke, but I think the Rs made their point.
