Idiot or liar?

Mary Landrieu (Dem - LA):

Though she's not ready to support the public option in the Senate bill, Landrieu says that, thanks to moderates, it's much improved.

"The public option, because of the moderates, and because of what I've been helping to do and other moderates, has been shaped, in our view, 100 percent better than when it started out," she said, adding,"it's already shaped to be a public option that is supported by premiums," before being whisked away into a vote.

The Public Option has always - always! - been designed to be supported by Premiums. Does she really not know this? Or is this just some weird kabuki dance she needs to perform in order to change her position? It amazes me that she can get away with such a statement. I guess our media is no smarter than her.

I'm happy to have her come around on the issue. But i'm not happy that she's pushing some 'moderates made it better' agenda when that's clearly not true.
