In today’s American Spectator I discuss some of the more laughable attempts by the “reporters” of the American press corps to make this bloated, stinking pig presentable for the midterms:
The legacy news media are once again doting on the porcine Affordable Care Act with an extravagance not lavished on a pig since P.G. Wodehouse created the immortal Empress of Blandings.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Empress, she was a gigantic Berkshire sow who was treated by her aristocratic owner with a level of reverence that caused his friends and family to question his grip on reality.

If you browse the web for recent news on the president’s “signature domestic achievement” your search engine will return countless articles describing it as a spectacular success story.
