Earn Your Stripes: Join ObamaCorpse Today

Ok, Ok. The Red Queen and the Mad Hatter were fun, and the Newsweek apple was enlightening (or was it the other way around?), but we’ve got more serious reporting to do now.


First the good news: it must be Spring, because Lady M broke out some of her new Spring duds: a pink and white striped silk sleeveless blouse, with a waistless, but also beltless fuchsia skirt. The bad news:  I have a very bad feeling about the subtle message we might be sending about Obamacare with this particular sartorial choice. It seems more than a bit evocative of the uniforms worn by the Candy Stripers in their historically important role in the healthcare field.


I’m talking about the fine young ladies who, during WWII, worked in offices or factories during the day and volunteered their time to work as Candy Stripers at night to help alleviate the severe nurse and doctor  shortages in hospitals.

You probably don’t remember them, but your mom or grandma might have been one of them. I sure hope that’s not what Big Guy has in mind for lowering health care costs.   Because somehow, I just don’t think this generation’s Candy Stripers would be quite as selfless.

Besides,I don’t really think that those pink striped uniforms that I saw in the situation room were for ObamaCorpse workers, I think they were costumes for Toes’ next Nutcracker production: the Sugar Plum Fairies.

But you probably want to know more about Lady M’s continued fight to improve fitness and combat obesity in children: she was pretty in pink as she lectured the Grocery Manufacturers Association Science Forum to stop selling junk food.
