As Bob Cesca points out we have another epic fail in GOP hyprcrisy on health care reform. Jed at Daily Kos has more:

PENCE: This is not a deal that will go over well with the American people. They understand what a governmentment run insurance plan will mean.

PENCE: A government run insurance option that the President’s insisted on is going to amount to a government takeover of our health care economy.

PENCE (challenged by Andrea Mitchell on support for Medicare): Oh, no, I support Medicare, and have supported the program.

Do the Republicans have any idea just how stupid they sound when they simultaneously attack the idea of government health insurance and lavish praise on the largest government health insurance program in the nation?

Jed, I think they know but don't care. They've got their fixers in the main stream media to keep their message from looking like the hypocrisy that it is. Mitchell called him out mid-interview, and allowed him to finish up unchallenged. As long as that's the norm, these people have no reason to fear going on the TV and lying to the public.

Can you help us out?
