Members of Congress are spending the August recess holding town hall meetings about health care, and that is not going so well, what with wingnuts shrieking about Nazis and all. Meanwhile, over in the media, people are saying that if we pass health care reform Barack Obama will kill large babies and old people, and then he will star on a soap opera, and then he will kill more seniors, and then he will put his hands on Jim DeMint, and then he will bureaucratize bureaucracy, and then he will fall to the Prussians. Did I forget anything?
Oh yes, he will also stick a bone through his nose.
The reason for all this insanity, of course, is very simple: Barack Obama has not made enough shiny websites…
"They got caught up in the act of governing, and what health-care reform needs right now is the kind of campaign that only President Obama and his team can deliver," said Democratic consultant Steve McMahon.
"They've been caught slow," said Harvard University pollster Robert Blendon, who has tracked attitudes about health care for decades. "If you're not quick, your opponents get there first."
Stupid government, always getting caught up in the act of governing! Why does Barack Obama think we elected him in the first place?
Come on, Mr. President, stop trying to distract us with all these policies and ideas and things, and get back to what really matters: graphic design.
