What Is It Good For?

The NY Times quotes Orrin Hatch on health care:
Republicans have vowed to fight the legislation at every turn, saying it represents a dangerous expansion in the role of government that would increase taxes and insurance costs for millions of people. “It’s going to be a holy war,” said Senator Orrin G. Hatch, Republican of Utah.
Oh, Orrin. You especially should know that there's already one Holy War scheduled for this month. There can't be two holy wars in such a short period of time - it'd just be unseemly. Perhaps a "holy police action"?

Dude, the New Pornographers have a song called "Centre for Holy Wars". Can you say "missed opportunity"?
