Hypocrisy is the 'Mark of Kane.'

Shortly after the passage of ObamaCare, Eugene Kane at the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel told us to "Smile, guys!" Rather than delve into any thoughtful analysis Eugene opined.

...I think the reason so many are upset has less to do with health care but a lot more to do with their need for President Obama to fail. He didn't fail; in fact, Obama might have cemented his legacy with the health care bill.

Mr. Obama's top Milwaukee sycophant instinctively knew that those who opposed ObamaCare were really just opposed to having a black president. Mr. Kane predicted that.


As the current anger subsides, many Americans will go on to fixating about something else in coming months and years. Particularly when the health care bill turns out to be a good thing for most Americans despite all the GOP scare tactics.

Well Eugene after a few months, more Americans are opposed to ObamaCare than ever before. In particular the individual insurance mandate continues to stick in our craw and fuel a number of legal challenges.


Mr. Kane has moved on and is currently "fixating about something else" these days. On June 1st a new law went into effect in Wisconsin and Eugene is not a happy camper. Kane writes that.


...The new law allows police to ask for proof of insurance during a traffic stop along with the standard request to see a valid driver's license.

[...]

The concern for some is that the people who live in neighborhoods where motorists are regularly stopped by police could bear the brunt of this law. Those who can't prove they have insurance will end up in deeper trouble when they're unable to pay the fine.

Wisconsin's auto insurance mandate is going to lead to even more racial profiling! Minority drivers beware, you could get into trouble for breaking the law.


The new law requires that drivers maintain liability insurance (as in 48 other states) to protect other people from the financial burden resulting from an accident caused by another motorist. Of course this law only applies to individuals who own or operate a motor vehicle and there is no requirement that the driver must purchase full coverage insurance.


Maybe it's just me, but If Mr. Kane has no problem with ObamaCare and the insurance mandate which will apply to everyone, why should he have a problem with Wisconsin's motor vehicle insurance requirement? Is it because the Wisconsin law isn't a veiled government takeover? Is it because the Wisconsin law has no income redistribution aspect?


Those of us who read Mr. Kane's column (for laughs) know that hypocrisy is the ‘mark of Kane.' Hey Eugene, don't worry in a few months you'll be "fixating about something else," in the meantime just tell your pals to "Smile, guys."
