Speaking Friday in front of DNC and Organizing for America members Friday and pitching his health care plan, Barack Obama set the gold standard for macabre narcissism:

And what may be a lasting anecdote for the president’s push on health care reform – Mr. Obama told for the first time a story about a woman in St. Louis who had been part of his campaign.

She couldn’t afford health insurance and put off her exams. After a tough battle for four years, throughout the campaign. She died 5 days ago.

“She insisted that she is going to be buried in an Obama t-shirt,” Obama said, “She was fighting that whole time not just to get me elected, not even to get herself health care, but because she understood that there were others coming behind her who were going to find themselves in the situation. And he didn’t want others going through that something.”

Israpundit found a confirmation of this hellaciously masturbatory ego-stroke in the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

How long until we see Organizing for America hawking Obama t-shirts at cancer wards and funeral homes?

Update: Justine in comments reminds us that this might have something to do with why Obama says “corpse-man” instead of “corpsman”:

    Obama's supporters are so weird . . . and yet, no better symbol of his presidency so far than a logo and slogan slapped on a decaying corpse (or corps).

    I read this woman's story, and saw that she did indeed have health insurance. Additionally, she initially deliberately put off seeking treatment. Finally, she got the treatments she wanted (allegedly denied by her insurer) through Medicare/Medicaid. She just used her illness as a political tool. Guess what rhymes with corps?
