Dear Jim Dean, Democracy for America,
Thanks for your recent e-mail that contained the subject line "Roland Burris: Senate Healthcare Hero." It's one of the few Democracy for America e-mails I actually read. (you folks send a lot of e-mail, did you know?)
I was just curious--do you know if Sen. Burris plans to include "Senate Healthcare Hero" on his tombstone? Or is it up to me to keep cheering him on so that he can officially claim that title?
Also, are there other Senate Healthcare Heroes we can cheer on in the Senate's quest to actually accomplish something? What are their colors? I'll make some pom-pons, and the two of us can recruit a Senate Cheering Squad and go to Capitol Hill. I've even got some cheers ready to go! What do you think of these?
Who thinks the public option's great?
We say, "No!" You say "More!"
We say, "Donut!" You say "Hole!"
You ain't got no alibi
You healthy, yeah yeah, you healthy
(Health care rocks!)
And that's just the beginning! Come on, Jim! Help me cheer on the Senators in this historic quest to bring health care to everyone in America. Together we can do it! Are you willing to accept the challenge?
