Irony Calls In Sick

From Album 5

So, the same people who conjured up death panels are now full of well-rehearsed indignation over some careless remarks by Obamacare architect/designer Jonathan Gruber…remarks that really don’t matter anyway since the Supreme Court, in validating the law, essentially said much the same thing. Yes, the penalty for not complying with the individual mandate…is a tax. Duh.

But, at this point, the hissy fit is as ritualized as Kabuki or a tea ceremony…and if it doesn’t become part of “the conversation” (aka Cokie’s Law)…well…down the memory hole it goes, to be replaced by yet another outrage du jour, which number so many at this point I’ve lost count…

Rinse, repeat…hurl.
