Dead End


"The womb to the tomb."

"From the rockin' of the cradle to the rollin' of the hearse"  (Not really relevant, but I've always loved that line. Who by/what from?)

Yesterday, the Obama Campaign released "The Life of Julia", a cartoon slide-show account of a fictional woman who is dependent on government at every stage of her life...all to recommend the reelection of President Obama and Democrats.  Yuval Levin's reaction was among the best: "I don’t think I have ever seen a cultural artifact that so desperately begs to be parodied and ridiculed, and is so ill-suited to the audience it is intended to reach, as the Obama campaign’s 'Life of Julia'."   And, sure enough, conservative pundits were quick to pounce (e.g., herehere, and here).

But there's nothing funny about it.  As head-shakingly weird as the "The Life of Julia" is, it is also perfectly emblematic of the thinking, and intention!, of left-wing America, the Obama Administration, and the Democrat Party.

  2. Isn't it a shame that "The Life of Julia" didn't include a slide wherein Julia, at a late stage in life was diagnosed with some chronic albeit life threatening illness. Under Obama a panel of experts considered her case and determined that curative care was too expensive and that she would therefore be provided palliative care only. She may have lived several more years but by doing this she would pass early saving the taxpayers thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars. In the end, all America cheered the wisdom of it all and slept better at night knowing Obama was looking out for them.

  3. Perfect M!
