Missing The Point

I see people in various places suggesting that there are some good things in the catfood commission report so Teh Left should embrace those things, blah blah. But good things and good ideas are easy to come up with! I don't need the blessing of Simpson and Bowles. The point of the catfood commission was to come up with a package, one which both sides might hate a bit but which would ultimately be good so maybe people would hold their noses and pass it. If 14/18 commissioners sign off Congress is supposed to (they don't have to, but they've kind of agreed to) have an up or down vote on the whole thing. There's no picking and choosing allowed, and if picking and choosing is allowed there's no point in starting with that piece of crap.
