Afrocity had better watch her back or the Disinformation Czar will come to get to her.
Soon I will be expected to name names, turn in my best friend. I will tell on your elderly parents because they attended a town hall meeting and said the wrong thing. On one beautiful morning a woman walks to her mailbox and finds a rolled up newspaper. She opens it and it contains a piece of withered arugula. She has been warned.
Something tells me that my 1956 DeSoto will be right at home in today’s political climate. Is it just me or is the White House beginning to sound a little bit McCarthy-ish ?

The White House is losing the health care debate. Polls from National Public Radio, Wall Street Journal/NBC News, The Washington Post, Gallup, and Pew all show that the American people do not support President Barack Obama’s health care plan. The White House wants people to believe they are losing the health care debate because “scary … videos are starting to percolate on the internet” that are spreading “disinformation” about Obama’s health care plan. The White House is even encouraging Obama supporters to help them identify people spreading this “disinformation.” The official White House blog now asks Americans: “If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
In the interest of honest debate, we would like to flag the White House about some prominent people that are directly contradicting the President about what his health care plan would do to the American people. As White House Health Reform Office communications director Linda Douglass points out in a video released by the White House yesterday, President Obama has repeatedly assured Americans that under his plan “if you like your insurance plan, your doctor, or both, you will be able to keep them.”
The problem the White House faces, however, is that much of President Obama’s base does not want the American people to keep their current insurance plan or doctor. Activists on the left prefer a single-payer system where private health insurance companies have been eliminated. So how can the White House both appease its leftist base, which wants single-payer/government-run health care, and mollify the vast majority of Americans, who want to keep their current health insurance providers? By creating a government-run “public option” designed to slowly eliminate private insurance over time.
Add this humorous clip from the Glenn Beck program and you can see that this administration is shaping up to start the Arugula Scare. Change we can believe in. Black men hanging from nooses, naming names wow America, you really have come a long way baby.
