Ron Fournier of National Journal sees the writing on the wall…
It’s amazing how Michael Ramirez can say more in a cartoon than a writer can say with words.
Is your blood pressure a little low tonight?
Here’s some follow up reading from Sean Davis at The Federalist…
The latest revelation about Obamacare from Jonathan Gruber can be summed up in this quote…
Almost awesome in its evilness.
He didn’t mean to do it, but Jonathan Gruber has done America a huge favor by proving once and for all that Obamacare is built on nothing but lies. They lied about how it would work, they lied about what it would do and they lied to pass it.
Thinking of all this reminded me of something Michelle Malkin wrote back in 2009 and the picture in her column. In one of the Obama administration’s many propaganda moves, they staged a press conference with “doctors for Obamacare” and passed out white lab coats to the crowd so everyone would really look like doctors.
Essentially, they passed out costumes…
Here’s another photo of the event from the New York Post…
Jonathan Gruber called American voters stupid and on one level he was right. Anyone who saw these stories and pictures and didn’t know that what they were witnessing was theater and propaganda is stupid.
Maybe you’ve never seen these pictures. Ask yourself why.
If you had any doubt that #Grubering has gone mainstream, even CBS News is reporting on it now.
Of course, they still framed the story by how Republicans are reacting to it. You’ll also notice in the video below that they failed to point out that Nancy Pelosi knows exactly who Jonathan Gruber is.
Still, this is big. Once the MSM picks up a story like this, it’s impossible for Democrats to claim it’s just some FOX News conspiracy theory.
Via the Washington Free Beacon…
European scientists just landed a probe on a comet traveling at tens of thousands of miles per hour.
What did feminists care about? The shirt the chief scientist was wearing in a TV interview.
Is it any wonder that “feminist” is currently winning a Time Magazine reader poll for words to be banned in 2015?
My Legal Insurrection colleague Kemberlee Kaye has written a must-read post on the subject:
Glenn Reynolds has also written an excellent column on the subject for USA Today…
1 small shirt for a man, 1 giant leap backward for women
So how are things going for feminism? Well, last week, some feminists took one of the great achievements of human history — landing a probe from Earth on a comet hundreds of millions of miles away — and made it all about the clothes.
Yes, that’s right. After years of effort, the European Space Agency’s lander Philaelanded on a comet 300 million miles away. At first, people were excited. Then some women noticed that one of the space scientists, Matt Taylor, was wearing a shirt, made for him by a female “close pal,” featuring comic-book depictions of semi-naked women. And suddenly, the triumph of the comet landing was drowned out by shouts of feminist outrage about … what people were wearing. It was one small shirt for a man, one giant leap backward for womankind.
The Atlantic’s Rose Eveleth tweeted, “No no women are toooootally welcome in our community, just ask the dude in this shirt.” Astrophysicist Katie Mack commented: “I don’t care what scientists wear. But a shirt featuring women in lingerie isn’t appropriate for a broadcast if you care about women in STEM.” And from there, the online feminist lynch mob took off until Taylor was forced to deliver a tearful apology on camera.
It seems to me that if you care about women in STEM, maybe you shouldn’t want to communicate the notion that they’re so delicate that they can’t handle pictures of comic-book women. Will we stock our Mars spacecraft with fainting couches?
It was Liberal Tolerance Week at College Insurrection.

So we’re now up to four videos of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber insulting the American people and touting his own Super Friend level intelligence.
