Republicans are pussies

I've long been mystified by the way the Right talks out of both sides of the ol' piehole when it comes to the Free Market. This piece by David Sirota questions this premise as it relates to Health Care.

I've always been fascinated by this paradox when it comes to automobiles. The Right will squawk and preen about competition and free market Friedman principles, and then in the same breath scream that if'n you're a loyal flag waver, you need to "buy 'Murkan" or else.

If the theory holds that the the free market provides the best car for the best price, it shouldn't matter a whit to me, the consumer, who made the vehicle or what country the corporation is based, right?

Oh well, just another right wing oxymoron, n'est-ce pas?
