If you believe that Kathleen Sebelius resigned of her own volition as Health and Human Services secretary, you obviously still believe in the Easter Bunny. Insiders say her departure is all about protecting Barack Obama's “legacy.” Which more than suggests the president never has and never will own the mess that is ObamaCare. ... Attorney General Eric Holder more than intimates that criticism of his actions and policies and those of the president is racist. Speaking at a New York convention last week, he called it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges, reports Politico. Pity that the nation's chief law-enforcement officer plays the race card to cover for his many documentable incompetencies. ... Pennsylvania Democrat gubernatorial front-runner Tom Wolf's latest campaign ad repeats the myth that is the 23-percent gap between male and female wages. We have to “do better,” he insists. Yes, you do, Mr. Wolf. ... Reports CNSNews.com: “Were Medicaid a nation instead of a U.S. entitlement program it would be the 20th most populous country on Earth.” Ah, yes, life in the Dependent State of America. ... Remember Mark Witaschek, the fella found guilty of violating Washington, D.C., gun laws for possessing inoperable muzzleloader bullets — no primer, no gunpowder — that couldn't be fired from a gun not even located in the district? The Washington Times' Emily Miller reports that the district's tax gendarmes have demanded payroll and other records from his business but have made no specific allegations or filed any charges. Why don't they just draw and quarter the guy?
