Yes, Mr President, Facts *Are* Stubborn Things: White House Blog Requests Your Help in Snitching

You cannot make this stuff up, people.

The White House Blog announced today that it is totally up for snitching, in fact, should you come across any of those tricky little facts on your adventures through the Internet, they would love to be added to your e-mail chains.

Opponents of health insurance reform may find the truth a little inconvenient, but as our second president famously said, "facts are stubborn things."

For the record, the President has consistently said that if you like your insurance plan, your doctor, or both, you will be able to keep them. He has even proposed eight consumer protections relating specifically to the health insurance industry.

There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to

For the record, if anyone is stupid enough to hand-feed this information to Big Brother, I hope they are first in line for forced sterilization and slavery when things turn really wacky. Just sayin.

Jr Deputy Accountant

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.


Seriously how soon before some sort of Blog Oversight Czar is appointed. Maybe someone with the last name Goebbels will be nominated. (I know, sorry, I have to go there on this one.)

Shhh, NL, let's not discuss here, *they* might be watching.

I was actually thinking more like... I dunno, maybe Mengele has a son running around somewhere? You know, Czar of Blog Oversight and Chief Obamacare Consultant Czar in one, win-win dude!
