Frank practically lives on the TV tropes website, so he almost peed his pants when he found out he’s mentioned. I’ve ever been prouder.

John Hawkins’s poll on health care is up.

Tips for getting the voters behind Obamacare

The most recent numbers show that support for Obamacare is tanking drastically, so I thought I’d give the president some advice on how to improve those numbers.

*Clarify that Obamacare isn’t going to kill your grandma. It’s going to kill both of your grandmas. So now you won’t have to worry about getting that chartreuse knitted sweater for Christmas anymore. Nobody likes chartreuse.

*Make sure voters know that you’ll only have to wait months to see a doctor if you don’t die in the first few weeks after you get sick. A little suffering is good for the soul and builds character.

*Tell representatives and senators to be even more arrogant and dismissive at townhalls about voter concerns. I know I always realize I’m wrong if someone shrugs me off.

*Emphasize the exciting provision that the IRS is getting involved! I always say we need more IRS in our lives.

*Point out the related provision that people who don’t have health care coverage during any part of the tax year will be taxed. Because it’s free healthcare.

*Free Barbra Streisand CD and canvas Che Guevara handbag with voter buy-in!

Do you have suggestions for how the president can improve support for Obamacare? Put them in the comments.

On the bubble

This is my first week as a housewife/homemaker (whichever you prefer, I’m not picky), and I have already failed. The first thing I heard when I dragged myself out of bed at 7:15 this morning was, “The coffee didn’t taste as good today.”

Oops. He always tells me that the coffee tastes better when I make it. So I set it all up the night before so that he can have coffee with stale water instead of fresh water so the coffee can taste better. And last night I was just too tired from getting my butt kicked at swordfighting and then kicking butt at making potions and collecting Hogwarts mini-crests to remember anything that goes on outside the Wii.

He’s told me I’m on the bubble. So my question for you IMAO readers: If I lose this job, will Obama have created or saved it? Or both in one week?
