The Right Said No Government Involvement In Health Care Choices...

Until it suits their political ends.

Mississippi Republican Governor Haley Barbour, a possible far-right presidential candidate in 2012,  stepped knee-deep into ugly racial politics recently, so sees an opportunity through a pardon to dig himself out and orders a pardoned prisoner to donate a kidney to her sister.

Good pardon - - years late - -  but does anyone see a contradiction in his opposition to the new health care bill's government-mandated purchase of individual coverage and his use of government power to mandate two major surgeries, especially since the sisters had volunteered to do the transplant?
