Getting petty with Hillary

Hillary on her husband's impending quadruple bypass surgery:
We're in very good hands and we're delighted we have good health insurance. That makes a big difference and I hope some day everybody will be able to say the same thing.
On the one hand, it is a tough time for her, so I should let her comment slide.

On the other hand, I'm not going to.

Thought A: Give me a friggin' break -- must she politicize everything?

Thought B: Her statement is not even factually accurate. Having health insurance does not "make a big difference" in their case. In some people's cases, yes, but not in theirs. Between Bill and Hillary's two best sellers, they could afford the best heart surgery they can find even had they no insurance whatsoever.
