Drudge linked earlier today to a YouTube video of a protester at an Obama
campaign stop town hall meeting yelling a-la Joe Wilson “You Lie!” and being drowned out by hoots and yells. Eventually he’s led out of the arena by security, all the while suffering the slings and arrows of the sheep there to hear Big Brother pronounce. The spectacle is uncomfortable. The lone man speaking truth to power, the seemingly glazed-over adorers of The One mercilessly thrashing him (and even stealing his hat at one point) on his way out. Kinda pathetic. Here it is, but before you view it, take a second and carefully listen to what the president is saying:
Notice anything curious? Well, as in any
campaign stop health care discussion, it’s a boilerplate speech that’s delivered over and over to audiences regardless of the venue. And yes, you heard the same lame story about the masectomy lady from Texas last week during the president’s stump speech address to the Joint Session of Congress. Here’s what’s actually curious about it: He’s still using it even though it’s a lie.
The woman’s testimony at the June 16 hearing confirms that her surgery was delayed several months. It also suggests that the dermatologist’s chart may have described her skin condition as precancerous, that the insurer also took issue with an apparent failure to disclose an earlier problem with an irregular heartbeat, and that she knowingly underreported her weight on the application.
Keep on-a lyin’, Mr. President. The old-school media sure as hell ain’t going to call you on it. Sheesh.

misread the teleprompter misspoke or was just being a drama queen.)
