If you're hoping President Obama passes his health care reform bill, Tuesday has been a good day — and there haven't been many.

First came word that when she was a little girl in Alaska, Sarah Palin's family would take the train into the Yukon to see the doctor. "Isn't that kind of ironic now," Palin marveled during a weekend speech in Calgary. "Zooming over the border, getting health care from Canada."

Then Rush Limbaugh let it be known on the radio that if Obama gets his way with health care, Limbaugh will seek his medical treatment in some other country. "I'll go to Costa Rica," he said, though, as AOL's David Knowles points out, Costa Rica offers its people universal health care.

It's hard to say where Limbaugh would go, since just about every first-world country but our own underwrites health care. Maybe he'll slip off to Whitehorse and say Sarah Palin sent him.
