Look, it’s the adorable newlywed Melody Barnes discussing with a straight(ish) face the REAL TRUTH behind the much-ballyhooed Panel of Experts who will advise you on the best methods for saving the State the cost of supporting your elderly carcass once you no longer serve as an effective food or work source. Apparently the so-called health care “reformers” just want you to be able to access information about getting a living will. Occam’s razor here, folks! What’s more believable: that Obama wants to encourage people to communicate more with their doctors, or that this Barnes character is just some alien android created expressly for eugenics propaganda purposes?

  1. Will newly-confirmed Justice Sotomayor preside over this? Will prominent birthers/teabaggers be the first to be hauled before it? Once our fascist/socialist/mooslim/atheist overlord has these smoothly running, what next? the fairness doctrine?

  2. The gubmental graphic on her computer screen looks suspiciously like the screen grabs the aliens used in Independence Day. Teh countdown to human annihilation haz beguuuuuuuuuuunnnnn!

  3. As a veteran, I’ve been given the choice by the VA to get counseling on health care directives. Why does the government want to kill the troops?

  4. without seeing her valid birth sertificat (long from!), I half to assume shes from Occams whatever-you-said. Also she didnt say the plege of allegence . .. doesnt count.

  5. [re=382038]Advocatus_Diaboli[/re]: Because that’s what governments always do.
    Or is there another reason for having troops besides getting them killed somehow?

  6. Communication with your doctor is socialism and is against God’s friggin’ design.
    Religious Right: Health Care Reform is Against God’s Plan
    August 10, 2009
    The Minnesota Family Councilsays that Obama’s plan for health care reform is against God’s design and, according to its president, God has created government to do certain things. When we reject His design for government, in a sense, we’re rejecting Him.

  7. Melody? I’m to trust a person named by deaf parents unable to distinguish, while lip-reading, between Melanie and Melody? Reminds me too much of that Harmony Korine guy. And he just ain’t right in the head, as a quick perusal of his filmic output will attest.

  8. The amount of logic displayed in the above-video is too much for some, so expect a stunning “SHE IS A LIZARD SHEEPLE” retort sometime in the next few hours.

  9. I’ve heard the panel of experts is actually a group of teabaggers with slips of paper, ala Shirley Jackson’s classic tale “The Lottery.” And who among NASCAR fans doesn’t love a lottery?

    Git yer lottery tickets before they’re gone, teabaggers!

  10. Even without death panels or communal commissions, Granny is going to die. No 11th-hour medical interventions or head in the sand approach will prevent that from happening. Mortality leaves such a bad taste in the mouth no wonder people want to spit it out on Hopey.

  11. This is the public policy equivalent of an astronomer explaining to a fundamentalist-homeschooled seven-year-old that the Earth isn’t 6,000 fucking years old, you dumbass.

  12. I’m just waiting for the RNC’s “Logan’s Run” comparison video mashup. Unless I’m giving Mikey Steele too much credit for having a little imagination.

  13. I’m gonna go all lady-mag for a second. She’s 45?! I’m 17 years her junior, bathe daily in the blood of virgins, and I don’t look nearly that good.

  14. This video should be played at all the town halls. The normal people will be informed and reassured, while the birthers will go into convulsions at the sight of (another!) black woman in the uniform of the terrorist, a sleeveless blouse.

  15. yea, but she is teh black so cant be trusted no matter how pretty or well spoken she is. [re=382095]kth[/re]: who knows that the hell a ‘living will’ could possibly be? She does not say. It is a terrorist plot fur sure, the bait and switcheroo.

  16. Well, since no one is really this adorable and holds a real job, I vote for “B”– alien android. (will now go do penance for sexist remark. What can I say, I’m an old.)

  17. Whoever directed this has no vision. Get her out from behind that desk. put a long pointer in her hand. some librarian glasses down on the end of her nose, some very high heels, a ridiculously tight short skirt, a couple charts and hopefully she’ll drop her chalk a couple of times. geeze do i have to come down there and help you guys with the obvious?
    the voice and tone is pitch perfect, just needs some visual aids-if you know what i mean.

  18. [re=382100]trickyrick[/re]: …It is a terrorist plot fur sure, the bait and switcheroo.
    right! you go in thinking you’ll talk to your trusted doctor and suddenly you’re in front of the Obama Inquisition! You didn’t expect that did you! (well, nobody does). Soon you find yourself in some FEMA camp being waterboarded. or worse.

  19. [re=382095]kth[/re]: Amen to that. Shouty mobbies probably think that she is obviously a welfare queen with 9 children from 4 baby daddies, and therefore cannot possibly hold a gubmint job, be intelligent, or speak authoritatively about anything other than getting her next food stamp allowance.

  20. I think Virginia Foxx is right to be worried. I’d vote to euthanize her in a heartbeat, as I would any old fool who changed their name to a TV network…

  21. “What’s more believable: that Obama wants to encourage people to communicate more with their doctors, or that this Barnes character is just some alien android created expressly for eugenics propaganda purposes?”

    Well, it’s a toss up, but I’m hoping it’s option two. I don’t like going to the doctor, and she looks yummy! Where would one get one of these androids?

  22. It’s kind of ironic that the folks who believe in an afterlife – which is supposedly better than this one – want to put off going there as long as possible.

  23. I don’t know anything about eugenics, but she just proved with scientific certainty that my anatomy is capable of complete neurological function.

  24. [re=382093]Kaylub[/re]: While XX porn is pretty weak sauce — not graphic enough for those desensitized to standard-issue intercourse, but too demanding for those used to MAXIM — there is general agreement that Jimmy Foxx is the best second baseman ever.

    That’s what you mean, right?


    also is it just me or is virginia foxx a total porn name.

  26. Right now if you have private insurance, there is a panel of experts who are actually call center workers in India that are trained to say No.

  27. What’s more believable, that the Obama administration has competent hott chix trying to improve your healthcare, or that it has sexbots that want to kill you? I think we all know the answer to that one.

    (Hint: it’s totally sexbots).

  28. I don’t get why the repubs are against these “death panels”

    It’s a chance for Dick Cheney and pals to earn a little extra income in their retirement.

  29. [re=382076]the deliverator[/re]: Logan’s Run? Bring it on! I’ve been wishing for that since I read the novel as a kid.

    Wait, I’m 44 now…
