Pretty lady poster girl

The ACA website poster girl has come out. Her name is Adriana and she isn't a professional model. She's a legal immigrant from Columbia who is married to an American citizen and has a child. She posed for that picture but wasn't paid for it. She doesn't understand why so many people seem to be blaming her for the problems of Healthcare.gov since she wasn't involved in developing the site in any way.

Myself, I really feel sorry for her. It can't be too fun to have your face associated with such a train wreck.

You came this close to making a non-judgmental post about the topic, didn't you?

Pareidolia. If we had universal healthcare, maybe we could get the USA inoculated for that.

What sort of mental defective do you have to be harass someone in a (not-even) stock photograph

It's like blaming the laughing women who eat salad when sprouts give you gas

That's actually fascinating. I would have guessed there were meetings about selecting a model, days of searching through stock photos, reports written on the potential impact of selecting a man or a woman, memos on whether or not to pick a minority. I never would have guessed that she independently called and volunteered.
