I know that there is a lot of confusion about the meaning of the word “ironic,” and while I don’t think you can blame Alanis Morrisette, she certainly added to it. Clearly, the woman had no idea what the word meant when she wrote her song “Ironic.” It’s not “ironic” for a 98 year-old man to win the lottery and die the next day. Even Wendy Davis ex-husband/sugar daddy Jeff Davis doesn’t know what it means, as he makes obvious when he said, referring to loan he took out to send Wendy to Harvard Law School, “It was ironic,” he said. “I made the last payment, and it was the next day she left.” (Speaking of Ms. Davis, it is ironic that she criticized her wheelchair-bound opponent Greg Abbott for not understanding what it means to struggle because he hadn’t walked in her shoes. Ok, Joe Biden, Jr.)
Chris Jennings, the White House’s coordinator of health reform, has resigned six months after he was recruited to try to iron out the implementation of major aspects of the Affordable Care Act.
Jennings said in an interview Thursday that he decided to leave after he landed in the hospital last month with a health scare after working the long, intense hours typical of senior White House aides.
People will do anything to distance themselves from this poisonous Obamacare mess. I’m not suggesting that Mr. Jennings faked his health problems. I’m sure that trying to “fix” this completely unworkable scheme did make him sick. I hear that he’s going to try something easier next time, like say eating Chichester Cathedral.
All Americans want to escape from Obamacare, but unfortunately for the democrats facing the voters in 2014, they can’t. They own it.
