Kathleen Sebelius is just too darned busy to testify in front of Congress this week about the disaster that is Obamacare, but she is going to be in Boston tonight.
And no, not at Fenway Park.
She’ll be at a “gala” at the JFK Library in Dorchester, along with an assortment of Beautiful People, including Vice President Joe Biden, Chelsea Clinton and Patches Kennedy.
And the master of ceremonies: Comrade Chris Matthews, the MSNBC host who gets a tingle up his leg whenever he hears Obama speak, and who just this week told two of the guests on his rotten cable-TV show to “be positive” about Obamacare.
It must be great to be a Beautiful Person — demolish the U.S. health care system and then blow off Congress for a week while you jet off to swill the Obama Kool-Aid with your fellow swells. And by the way, you’re not supposed to call it “Obamacare” anymore. That’s a “dog whistle,” as Comrade Chris would say, a racist code word. Like “Chicago” and “Barry” — two earlier dog whistles.
Is it too late to blame this on George Bush?
It can’t be the president’s fault. He went to Harvard, so he must be very, very smart, right? If Bush didn’t wreck this wonderful new Obamacare — I mean, Affordable Care Act — then it must have been BP. Or maybe it was Dick Cheney cruising high above D.C. in the Halliburton Hurricane Machine, with Karl Rove as his co-pilot, beaming death rays onto healthcare.gov.
