Reform tort reform?

John Perr at Crooks and Liars does a great job of calling bullshit on Republican claims about tort reform.

[L]argely overlooked in the heated discussions of damage award caps, special health courts, expert panels and national compensation schedules is the inescapable truth that the medical malpractice system has only a negligible impact on overall American health care costs.
Nah, I don't think Republican tort reform can be reformed. It needs to be euthanized.
