If this is true, it’s the funniest thing that I’ve heard all week. [Take it away, Ann Althouse:]
Back in May 2012, everyone was talking about that graphic depiction of the benefits of various government programs. Remember?
Barack Obama has a new composite girlfriend, and her name is Julia. Her story is told in an interactive feature titled “The Life of Julia” on the Obama campaign website. Julia, who has no face, is depicted at various ages from 3 through 67, enjoying the benefits of various Obama-backed welfare-state programs.
I have something I’d like to say about it, but I can’t find it anywhere on the web. It’s not at the link everyone linked to when everyone was talking about it, which was at the Obama campaign website. The campaign is over, so I guess there’s no obligation to continue to host it, but this was an important historical document, and it shouldn’t fall down the memory hole.
In other words: in her second year Julia was determined to be superfluous for current needs. Accordingly, she was made into an unperson and all records relating to her were memory-holed; her former place of residence is now occupied by a state-patronized propaganda organ currently engaged in touting the effectiveness of a government healthcare access program that has yet to provide healthcare, because no one can access it.
PS: The thing that annoys me most about the people that work for Barack Obama? They won’t read. I know that they can, and I suspect that they would claim that they do; but a more deliberately blinkered and intellectually incurious bunch you would be hard-pressed to find.
