Conservative of the Year for 2013: Kathleen Sebelius!


Quite a few folks were amused by this portion of today’s Jolt, an award named only partially in jest:

Person of the Year: For remaining oblivious or hiding the catastrophe of Obamacare’s implementation until it was too late, Sebelius has done irreparable damage to the reputation of the Obama administration, the president, big government, and American liberalism. For this accomplishment, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is the Conservative of the Year for 2013 and perhaps the decade. Had she run Obamacare well, the country would look completely different; if, as many of us argue, Obamacare cannot run smoothly as it is currently written as law, she could have at least warned the president and the rest of the administration of the impending disaster. For failing to do either of those, she has inflicted more damage on the public’s faith in big government in one year than you or I will do in a lifetime.
