Western Civilization

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius had something to say about our fate on a recent episode of The Daily Show.  She made the remark after the show had finished airing, but in a post-show segment before the studio audience—and so still on the record.  Here’s her statement:

As you know, we’re facing the end of the Western Civilization by having a market-based strategy.  We’re bringing Western Civilization its knees by having a private insurance plan on a website where people pick and choose.

Lloyd Grove, writing about this for The Daily Beast, suggested that Sebelius was merely trying for humorous sarcasm.

Or was she serious?
