oh, this is too easy...

reminder:  this blog is about being cynical and how hard it is to keep up with how cynical one needs to be to get by...

So there is a special election going on in New York and a Republican and a Tea Party candidate are splitting the conservative and reactionary Republican vote and giving a conservative Democrat a sliver of hope.

The "traditional Republican" candidate endorsed the Ryan plan, including the replacement of Medicare with a voucher plan.  Realizing that this is a problem for her, someone thought it would be a good idea for Representative Allen West (R Florida) to do "robo calls" to voters assuring them that their Medicare is safe in the hands of the Republican candidate. 

Is anyone going to also point out to those voters that Rep West, back home, answered the chant of "Hands off my Medicare" with the taunt that he will take his hands off of Medicare when there is no longer a Medicare program.
