The White House wants to know about anyone who is spreading "misinformation" about the health care/health insurance reform-orama. For such would be, no doubt, disloyal to our Ofatherland. Not sure to where -- maybe try googling "Obama denouce health care opponents". Kids, are your parents displaying insufficient enthusiasm for reform? Now's your chance to get even for their not letting you get that M rated game! Yes you can!
Also, I would like to clarify a few things. If anyone happened to hear me opine that "this so-called health care reform plan is the most loathsome, disgusting and collectivist steaming crock of shit that has emerged from the fevered and depraved swamp of Washington misrule in 50 years," please bear in mind I was only kidding and had had a couple adult beverages. Neither was I serious when I said "this will reduce us to a bunch of penurious, ill-educated manual laborers in hock up to our eyeballs to a cabal of bloated Red Chinese crony-capitalist warlords, you just wait and see," but rather employing poetic license, to wit, hyperbole. Similarly, when I remarked that "Obama took more time to choose his dog than he wants Congress to consider health care "reform" and at the end of that he picked a breed known for its bad smell and hostility to children," I was honestly relying on just a few reports of PWD's, of which I am sure there are many examples of perfectly nice dogs. And if anybody attributes to me the rumor that the health care legislation includes a proposal to send old people with serious medical problems to North Korean hospitals to save money, please be assured I never said such a thing. Nor would I say anything disrespectful about our North Korean friends, and I am so excited by the prospect of opening negotiations with them again in our noble effort to convince them not to make nuclear weapons to sell to the terrorists of the world. Yes, I may have said something to the effect of Geez, twelve years in a North Korean hard labor camp, or twenty hours on a private jet with Bill Clinton: If I were a young woman, I'd call that a tough call -- but it was just a joke. In general, I am quite willing to work with the White House in clarifying any of my alleged remarks that may be reported to it. And I hope none of this will affect my application for an appropriate post in the Obama administration. In fact, this gives me an idea -- how about Commissioner of a Special Commission to Liase with the Right Wing Blog community?!
Oh, here it is:
On Monday, White House director of new media Macon Phillips posted a note on the White House web site complaining of "disinformation about health insurance reform." "These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation," Phillips wrote. "Since we can't keep track of all of them here at the White House, we're asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to email@example.com."
