One Good Thing About Obamacare

Let's face it: Obama screwed up. Whether you like him or not, or voted for him or not, at least we can all finally agree on that. His entire presidency has been focused on one thing and one thing only, and that's health care. His failure to deliver on the promise of free health insurance for everyone is undisputed by all except his former deputy campaign manager and current CNN star Stephanie Cutter, who is still insisting the new law is a good thing. I guess she didn't get the memo about how Obama himself is "open to legislation to fix the troubled rollout," which even many staunch Democrats now believe is necessary.

But never fear--there is one good thing to come from all this mess: Michelle is gone! Gone is the ubiquitous, self-aggrandizing "first lady" who showed up at every event, graced every magazine cover, blabbed on every TV talk show and even handed out the damn Oscars. Thankfully, these days she is blissfully out of sight, having cancelled many of her scheduled events since the government shutdown in October. One can only imagine how ashamed she is of her country right now. Of course, without her yammering about eating fewer potatoes and exercising to lose weight, we might all put on a few pounds. But if you ask me, it's worth it.
