Mark Steyn is filling in for Rush today… On actor Alec Baldwin losing his show on MSNBC for using an anti-gay slur…

So because Alec Baldwin used a gay slur against the paparazzo, MSNBC fired him. I happen to agree with Baldwin on this. The idea that you can be fired from using a slur in your private life? The right ought to be very careful about this, because the left is trying to shrink public discourse.

On the healthcare.gov web site’s state of readiness…

Well, here we are, folks, on November 27th, and the real turkey is nowhere near ready yet. That's the Obamacare website. In fact, it isn't gonna be ready on November 30th. They said it would be. They said it'd be fixed and then they said it would be ready for 80% load, and now they are saying that it's not gonna be ready on November 30th, and Kathleen Sebelius is now saying that she never said it would be. So we just dreamed all that.

On President Obama’s new agreement between the U.S. and Iran that relaxes economic sanctions on Iran in exchange for their promise to scale back their nuclear program…

And who can blame people for being confused? Only a month or two ago Obama wanted to go to war to destroy Syria's weapons of mass destruction. And now Obama has Iran, who are Syria's masters, given them the green light to go ahead with their own weapons of mass destruction program.

On the practical consequences of the abolition of the filibuster rule in the Senate by Harry Reid and the Democrats…

The Republicans may as well not vote. Their votes mean nothing. The people that elected them have absolutely no representation in the Senate at all, other than their senator maybe getting to participate in hearings and ask questions of witnesses, you know, whoop-de-doo. It just means that the Senate no longer does advice and consent. It's simply consent.

On the number of people who have signed up for health insurance at Healthcare.gov…

You know what the real number is of people who have closed the deal, actually clicked "purchase" in their shopping cart in that website? It's 27,000, total. It's 27,000 people, and you know who they are? The vast majority of 'em are seasoned citizens. The people that the Regime needs signing up are getting nowhere near it. Young people who are not gonna be making a lot of claims because they're healthy, they are not signing up. It is an absolute disaster.

On liberal activism in sports journalism…

Do you really think that the Billy Bobs and the Joe Kidds and whoever that are watching Sunday Night Football want to be preached to about gun control at halftime? No, they don't. The Doritos and Beer Crowd doesn't want to be preached to about anything at halftime. They want to see the highlights, they want to see the game, and they want to be left alone.

On the changing fortunes of the Obama presidency…

The magic is gone from Obama now. He does not have the ability any longer to get away with things that he did, certainly in his first term. Now, he's not changing the way he's going about anything, and Obama doesn't think he's in any trouble, but there aren't nearly as many people being bamboozled, fooled, madly in love with Obama.

On Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee and their attempt to derail Obamacare…

I want to take you back to Ted Cruz and Mike Lee a month ago. They were trying to warn people what was coming. They were trying to get people back then to delay this, to defund it, to prevent this that's happening from happening. They knew it was coming, as did every other elected official. Everybody in both parties knew this was coming, folks. Do not doubt me on this. Everybody knew.

On Obamacare… and liberalism...

Nobody will sign up for Obamacare unless they're forced to, and therefore everybody is going to be forced to. That's why there is an individual mandate! You have to be forced, otherwise you wouldn't. Even they know it. Even the Obamacare people know it. Nobody would choose this. That's the whole point of liberalism. You don't know what's good for you. They do. You will never do the "right" thing. You won't spend your money the right way, you won't donate to the right people, you won't support government enough. They have to take your money. They have to tell you how to live. They have to tell you what you can and can't eat and what you can and can't drive. And they have to tell you how big your portions can be. This is who they are, folks.

On Obamacare…

Americans had to lose their health care plans in order for Obamacare to work. There was never any intention for anybody to keep their current plan. The only way Obamacare could work, as designed by Obama and the Democrats, is precisely because people would lose their plan. It had to happen that way. The only way Obamacare could work, the only way Obama could reform the health care system the way he wants to reform it is precisely if everybody lost their plan.

On the GOP establishment and tea-party conservative Ken Cuccinelli’s narrow loss to Terry McAuliffe in the race for Virginia Governor…

They didn't want him to win. This is the dirty little secret. I don't think it's even a secret now. I'm telling you, such is the animus toward the Tea Party in the Republican Party establishment that they are perfectly comfortable with a Christie win and a Cuccinelli loss because to them that's a Tea Party loss. So now the Republican establishment can run around and claim the Tea Party is an albatross around their neck.

On the fighting spirit of the Tea Party…

The Tea Party wants to fix things. They want to beat back Obamacare. They want to beat back some of this spending. They want to get rid of some of this debt. The Tea Party knows that in order to do that, Democrats must lose.

On President Obama’s claim that you can keep your doctor and your health insurance plan under Obamacare…

I think Obama's lie about keeping your insurance may be the biggest lie ever told by a sitting president. This is not an error. It was not a mistake. This was a calculated, purposeful lie -- and the mainstream media carried his water on this until just last week.
