Sebelius Confirmed In The Senate

So now Kathleen Sebelius is the health and human services secretary. I don't envy her, actually, but wish her goddess-speed. If there's such a word.

The conservative opposition to her confirmation:

Republican opponents cited Sebelius' position favoring letting women decide whether to have abortions and raised misgivings about whether the Obama administration's plans to overhaul the nation's health system would lead to rationing of care.

Yawn. Women can't make any decisions but they sure can be left alone with tiny vulnerable children all day long. And note that all systems of health care already ration care, even the American one. Only here the rationing is based on whether you have enough money to buy care or not and whether your insurance policy lets you get something or not.
