As Twitchy reported yesterday, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared on “Meet the Press.” She joined other democrats in a failed attempt to spin away the fact that the mandate in Obamacare is a tax. She said that it isn’t a tax (after stumbling and almost saying the dreaded T-word aloud) and that it’s just a little penalty, free riders. Suck it up!

Twitter, as always, was at the ready to provide some teachable moments to the intelligence-deficient like Ms. Pelosi.

And, win.

Keep spinning and failing, democrats. And maybe brush up on history a bit. Americans aren’t too fond of excessive taxation, or the IRS, especially after being lied to about it.

And we need plenty of that laughter medicine right now!
