John McCain -- yes, John McCain -- just unintentionally made the best possible argument for nationalized health care I've heard this year. Via Krugman:
Here’s what McCain has to say about the wonders of market-based health reform:

Opening up the health insurance market to more vigorous nationwide competition, as we have done over the last decade in banking, would provide more choices of innovative products less burdened by the worst excesses of state-based regulation.

Nothing could possibly go wrong; they're all insured through AIG. </snark>
