Oh, dear. CNN analyst and DNC vice-chair Donna Brazile took to Twitter to opine on the Supreme Court’s Obamacare mandate as a tax ruling. She, too, is pulling the old “it’s not a tax, even though the Supreme Court specifically ruled it as such, wing nuts. Also, shut up” narrative. But she goes one spin better and calls it a “wellness penalty.” Orwellian much, Donna?
What’s the big whoop, wing nutty wing nuts with nutty wings? So you are punished for being well; whatever! It’s not like you are being punished with a baby or anything.
Bless her heart. With surrogates like these, President Obama, who needs enemies? If this is to be the new talking point/spin of the Democratic National Committee, then November is looking better and better!
Twitter users can’t even muster up much more than ridicule.
@donnabrazile …Penalty, tax, mandate – all words suggest 1 more difficulty 4 poor, elderly, middle class. Also, fair is no one opting out!

@donnabrazile Nonsense! It is a penalty imposed on those who don't buy health care that they DON'T need.

Remember that time Obama got a Nobel for doing nothing? TAXED.

She then followed that up with hilarious irony.

Oh, our aching sides! This coming from a woman who even politicizes the mere mention of Jeremiah Wright by calling it racist and a “hate fest.” Plus, we aren’t too sure she knows what partisan actually means. We already know that she doesn’t know the meaning of shameful.
@donnabrazile You keep on using these two words. I do not think they mean what you think they mean.

Keep digging, Obama surrogates. You are making it so much easier for Team Romney!
