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?

    I’m so glad. I was afraid I was going to have to eat old people, along with Brie, as part of my FrancoSocialist diet. I do not wish to eat old people as I am afraid they would be difficult to digest.

  • PoliticalGraffiti

    I’m going to have to go with the latter. She blinks a lot, and that’s the sign of a liar

  • dijetlo

    You mean they aren’t planning to force-euthanize the Republican ba…I mean the low brain activity olds?
    That’s not change we can believe in.

  • groove

    I’d respect Obama a lot more if he’d actually implement these death panels. That takes balls.

  • smitallica

    Section 1233 of of HR3200 is PEEEEEEEEE-PUUULLLLLLLL!!!!

    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?

  • KilgoreTrout_XL

    The memo tacked on the wall behind her is a list of the first old people to be fire-squaded, along with trig palin (HAS special needs).

  • snideinplainsight

    Maybe she is being tEl3Pr0mpTid.

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    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!

  • Advocatus_Diaboli

    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?

  • Internally valid

    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.

  • Come here a minute

    Wow, that video was very informative and reassuring. Now I’m sure that Melody Barnes is a robot that lives off of old people’s pills.

  • Monsieur Grumpe

    If she’s not screaming or crying I don’t believe it.

  • Herman the German

    [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?

  • S.Luggo

    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.

  • TGY

    B’god, fifteen post and no “I’d hit it”. Today, we have all been replaced by alien androids.

  • hobospacejunkie

    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.

  • shortsshortsshorts

    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.

  • pedestrian rage

    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!

  • DoctorCulturae

    I’m speechless. Sweet, delicious logic. Ms. Melody Barnes: Unsnarkable.

  • idiot son of an asshole

    These death panels could have the unintended side effect of fixing the unemployment problem. We ought to be going all in on this!

  • leave me at your own risk

    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.

  • norbizness

    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.

  • gjdodger

    “Marland Buckner Junior” sounds like someone who should be selling Ginsu knives on late night teevee.

  • facehead

    In other words, hospitals will be replaced with drive-thru only Taco Bells, Satan loves me, and Obama will eat my liver. Is that about right?

  • the deliverator

    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.

  • Dreamer

    She did not deny that they are planning to kill Trig though. Why does Ms Barnes hate Sarah Palin’s political prop, I mean baby?

  • doxastic

    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.

  • Woodwards Friend

    I would like to see this Melody Barnes’ birth certificate.

  • Cape Clod

    Can’t see the video at work. Does it mention anything about Obama pardoning Charlie Manson so that he can be the head of the Death Panel?

  • Zadig

    Eugenics is always the simplest explanation, it’s just a FACT.

  • El Pinche

    So this is the face of ACORN.

  • Kaylub

    Representative Foxx with two X’s? Hmm…

  • kth

    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.

  • trickyrick

    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.

  • house of the blue lights

    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.)

  • cheeto_jeebus

    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.

  • norbizness

    Wasn’t she Larry Sanders’ personal assistant?

  • El Pinche

    [re=382095]kth[/re]: hahaha yep.

  • Foolitics

    It’s Time For Colin Powell To Switch Party

  • An Outhouse

    Maybe the ‘party of no ideas’ has a better plan for cleaning out the forced detention camps.

  • NoWireHangers

    Melody kinda looks like Michelle.

  • qwerty42

    [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.

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    [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.

  • Toomush Infermashun

    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…

  • masterdebater

    “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?

  • RoscoePColtraine

    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.

  • Mr Blifil

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

  • josereyes.theroof

    [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?

  • Bearbloke

    [re=382048]TGY[/re]: I’d hit it, but only if I can give her a Dirty Sanchez and a Donkey Punch, before and after…

  • liquiddaddy

    Throw in pudding, TV, and sweet morphine, I’m game. What’s the worst that can happen?

  • Extemporanus

    Bill Clinton handled our youth in Asia problem pretty well last week. Can’t Obama just deploy him again?

  • krooskie


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

  • Chet Kincaid

    [re=382188]Bearbloke[/re]: Too Far, ya pervert.

  • Paul Tardy

    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.

  • Atheist Nun

    Oh, well. Back to my original plan: Kill all the old people by hiding cyanide in their Polident™.

  • AKAM80TheWolf


    The trick is extra virgin blood.

  • Lazy Media

    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).

  • americanscandoanything

    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.

  • Barrett808

    [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…
