Forget everything you learned about Bre’er Rabbit, the brightest, most cunning of all animals in West African folklore and Joel Chandler Harris stories.

The problem goes beyond Administration waffling, but waffling on waffling: once a line in the sand, the public option appears an unsteady mirage – now you see it, now you don’t.
