Tipping point? I doubt it.

But it gives me chills that the subject of healthcare is even becoming such a critical factor in this presidential election. Forgive me for being cynical, but if there's one thing the Bush Legacy of Terror has taught us about politics, it's that not only does the will of the people not have to translate to political action, but with a minimal amount of coercion, the lazy American public can fairly easily be convinced to vote against their own best interests.

Nevertheless, the people are angry. And that's as good a start as any.
