- As much as possible.
- Then why are you linking to Michael Bérubé?
- Because then I get to quote him saying this:
"John McCain is simply saying that he understands what it’s like not to have taxpayer-financed health care even though he himself has had it for all but a brief period of his adult life, just as you and I know that space is a near-absolute-zero vacuum full of deadly radiation even though we have never been astronauts. The obvious point of the analogy, folks, is that when you’re covered by a private health plan, you suffer debilitating bone loss and muscle atrophy; and when you’re totally uninsured, no one can hear you scream."
Which, you know, proves that Bérubé understands science.
- Or at least how analogies work.
- That, too.
