Heckuva job, Kathy
The Democratic war on women continues.
The "curious incident" of the dog not barking - the Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius curious omission incident from the much delayed deadline Obamacare outdoor celebration was finally explained with the announcement that she resigned to spend more time with her family.
"My friends on the right don’t like to hear this, but the Constitution is not a clear document. Written 100 years ago, when America had thirteen states and very different problems, it rarely speaks directly to the questions we ask it."
A week and a half after his Rose Garden Obamacare appearance, President Barack Obama (D) finally publicly acknowledged Sebelius' role in doing his dirty work. Speaking once again in the White House Rose Garden, Obama sort of praised her
"But under Kathleen's leadership, her team at HHS turned the corner, got it fixed, got the job done, and the final score speaks for itself," he said. "There are seven and a half million people across the country that have the security of health insurance, most of them for the very first time, and that's because of the woman standing next to me here today. And we are proud of her for that."
After the crowd cheered and clapped, Obama added, "That's a historic accomplishment."
Then Sebelius bid her farewell "Now, this is the most meaningful work I've ever been a part of. In fact, it's been the cause of my life." Her speech was cut short because, after shuffling the speech's papers in her binder, she discovered "Unfortunately, a page is missing."
Obama then quickly introduced Sebelius' younger replacement, also a white woman, who is of Greek descent (for those who notice these things) Sylvia Mathews Burwell.
Now that Sebelius is safely disposed of, Saturday Night Live can't effectively mock her and Democratic candidates running for (re)election won't have to confront a symbol of the Obamacare disaster as the November, 2014 election approaches.
And Obama will insist that his namesake law is working just fine even as premiums increase and patients discover if you like your doctor you can't keep your doctor.
That of course will still be blamed on the unfortunate Kathleen Sebelius.
