In a bit of irony that gives new meaning to the “AstroTurf” moniker liberals have given protesters who have been showing up at healthcare townhall meetings, we get word today that phony doctors have been showing up to express their support for the messiah’s takeover of national healthcare.
For the uninitiated, the term “AstroTurf” refers to grassroots-based citizen groups or coalitions that are primarily conceived, created and/or funded by corporations, industry trade associations or political interests. In other words, they are “fake” grassroots, just like AstroTurf is fake grass.
In a townhall meeting held by Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX), a woman who identified herself as a “doctor” (a general practitioner for four years) stood in support of ObamaCare and Jackson-Lee in a fairly hostile crowd.
You may recall that it was Jackson-Lee who decided that answering her cell phone during a townhall meeting held a few days ago was more important than listening to a cancer survivor ask a question about healthcare. Maybe she thought she was in that “can you hear me now?” commercial.
Well, it turns out that not only is “Dr. Roxana Mayer” not a physician, she is a political plant who served as a Texas delegate for Obama.
I guess that’s what the liberals call a REAL grassroots, eh?
She’s not a real doctor, so maybe she stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night. I couldn’t find the commercial that involved someone pretending to be a surgeon, but you’ll get the idea from this one.
