Pigs fly! An op-ed in Ebony (!) notes that despite getting an Obamacare insurance policy the writer cannot get any doctor to take her as a patient.

What makes this article even more shocking, coming from a black publication, are the comments, which are almost all strongly critical of Obama and Obamacare, while actually complementing tea party advocates and conservatives for warning that this might happen, beforehand.

    The author of the article was clueless and will likely remain so for the rest of her life. However, the comments regarding her cluelessness (is that word?) were great.

    I have to believe that someday, somehow, a steadily increasing number of people will finally make the connection between our deteriorating healthcare system and the president who precipitated it. The same for our disgraceful unemployment rate, our stratospheric rate of accumulating national debt, our weakend military posture, the disrespect that so much of the world now accords us, et cetera, et cetera. At that point, we might begin to pick up the pieces and repair this disaster.
