I guess we should have seen this coming.
With doctors fleeing Illinois because of sky-rocketing insurance rates and out-of-control lawsuits, an ailing â€œFlippyâ€ the Dolphin suffered alone in dry-dock today, unable to carry on his tireless crusade to understand why Melissa Bean opposes tax relief.
Sadly, the dolphinâ€™s condition worsened when he learned that Bean has no interest in remedying the doctor shortage or brining an end to what amounts to a â€œHealth Taxâ€ on consumers, preferring instead to remain in the tank with legal barracudas eager to sponge off our health care system and plumb the depths of excessive jury awards.

Given the downturn in his condition, it appears increasingly unlikely â€œFlippyâ€ will be able to meet Bean and attempt to understand why she is against delivering tax relief. The Democrat has dodged the friendly â€˜phin at every stop this week, doing everything she can to avoid the question of taxes altogether.
Maybe we can still save Flipper by all clapping our hands and saying together: “I believe in anthropomorphic Republican dolphins. I believe!”
I get the feeling this is not my finest moment.
