Obama to Fill Death Panels with Callous Fox Television Executives
It's time to admit it: We've been had. At countless rallies during last year's long primary season, Barack Obama was heard to insist, "I am a fierce advocate for Arrested Development. If there is anything I can do to get Michael Cera to finally sign on to the movie, or to free up Mitch Hurwitz's schedule so he can finally write this thing, I will bring the full weight of the American government to bear on this pressing issue." And now?
Nothing. Just empty promises and an insistence from sources close to the administration that we merely wait while more pressing issues -- like the economy and North Korea -- are dealt with. Well, as Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "For years now I have heard the word 'Wait!'...This 'wait' has almost always meant 'never.'"
Kudos, then, to this brave protester who would not let Obama (and verily, a nation) forget what really matters at a town hall meeting this week. If our president really cares about quality-of-life issues, he would realize that he is ignoring this small but influential voting demographic at his own peril.
