National Health Care Reform will be on the lips of everyone this Sunday. Count how many times the new GOP Talking Point Keyword 'Individual Mandate' gets used! (Read that link! -Ed.) Then Throw a BRICK at whomever said it! Arm yourself with Debunking Canadian health care myths. Leading the pack is Health and Human Services Secretary KATHLEEN SEBELIUS taking the WH limo to This Snufagupolis and John of the State. Be sure to tune in Veep JOE BIDEN on Meet the David to see if ole Joe makes another "provocative" statement. Face the Bob features a good cage match with MITCH MCCONNELL taking on DICK DURBIN. For some real "drama" watch CHUCK GRASSLEY accuse CHRIS DODD and the rest of the Democrats for the stinky economy on FAUX OUTRAGE SUNDAY, channelling Tricky Dick "When OUR guy runs up trillions of debt and starts two wars it's okay. Even patriotic! But YOU! YOU SOCIALSTS!" as Grassley's eyes pop out and Durbin deadpans, "Check please." Look for GREG PALAST on Ring of Fire Radio and in the BTV Alerts below and Stacy posted some good stories at Max Keiser. (Seder is still MIA from Breakroom Live.) To help figure out the GREED FACTOR in our health care system, do read The Cost Conundrum at the New Yorker by Atul Gawande. Also check out Glenn Greenwald @ Salon Tribalistic self-absorption and Major new accountability campaign from the ACLU plus UPDATE III: Greg Sargent is reporting that Nancy Pelosi will announce tonight on MSNBC that she formally opposes the Obama-backed Graham/Lieberman amendment . The Brick TeeVee Crew has been relaxing as the lawns are cut and the garden is in. The garden has already been scoped out by the local suburban deer (a young'un came by this afternoon - musta been the salt lick?). They'll be huddled around the tube Sunday night to watch the Tribe on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball. Go Tribe! Enjoy yer Sunday viewing choices!
