Slaughtering Cosmetically Correct Pigs

Russ Vaughn

In a recent column, E.J. Dionne, political cosmetologist to the Left as their team falls farther and farther behind, cites four examples of Democrat candidates who are supposedly not running away from ObamaCare as they run for office. In his account, Dionne is not only applying generous lip gloss to the proverbial pig, he’s also going with full eyeliner, mascara and blush.

James Taranto, in his Wall Street Journal Best of the Web Today column points out the futility of Dionne’s trying to blow-dry all that hog hair:

Dionne, of course, gets this exactly backward. The monstrosity is the actual law; what Democrats are running on is one feature that sounds attractive if you ignore its costs. "The first elements to kick in are very popular," Dionne observes. Perhaps, but when a condemned prisoner is put to death, the first element of the execution to kick in is a free meal.

That’s a jewel, James. And condemned prisoner may well be a prophetic and accurate descriptive for many Democrat candidates out there thirty days before the Grim Reaper, in the form of an angry American populace, brings a quick end to their political aspirations.

Dionne will surely assure that they are at least cosmetically correct at the slaughter.
