Video: And now, an important message from non-celebrities on ObamaCare

posted at 4:43 pm on September 30, 2009 by Allahpundit

I trust that everyone’s familiar with the subject of this parody but I’m going to re-embed it below anyway so you can see for yourself how much care was taken to spoof it shot-by-shot. It’s hard to miss when aiming at a target this big, admittedly, but you’ll still love every second of it. My one regret: That they didn’t wait a day or two in rolling it out so they could add a few gratuitous shots at Polanski’s comrades-in-art/rape.

Meanwhile, Will Ferrell’s comedy collaborator Adam McKay has responded to arguments that he should pony up some of his vast fortune to buy poor people health insurance if he’s that concerned about it by calling them “sub-moronic” and then staying very, very quiet.

Is that Keli Carender “Liberty Belle” in the video?

I’d donate to put a billboard up in HolierthanthouWood:

I wish they had done more on the multiple houses, private petting zoos and the like. I could be wrong but I would be willing to bet that more “celebrities” have those things then health insurance executives.

Cindy Munford on September 30, 2009 at 7:39 PM

I wonder if these uber rich people think this govt run health care will not effect them.

Will they be able to just rent out an operating room if they need to have surgery? or will they just buy the chemo drugs and have someone come set up the drip for them?

poppieseeds on September 30, 2009 at 6:44 PM

Remember Natasha Richardson? No MRI machine is no MRI machine. Maybe celebs will build personal health clinics beside their pool cabanas.

caygeon on September 30, 2009 at 7:48 PM

I know I’m late to the party with regard to the celebrity video, but did you all notice that Moveon.org spelled “content” “conent” at the end of the video? That really is funny.

Beautiful. I love how they inserted Biden’s plug(pun definitely intended) for higher taxes in there.

From Ann Coulter’s column in Human Events

But members of Congress, such as Reps. Dennis Kucinich, Jim Moran and John Olver, have all cited the U.S.’s relatively poor ranking in infant mortality among developed nations as proof that our medical care sucks. This is despite the fact that in many countries a baby born the size of Dennis Kucinich would not be considered a live birth.

I imagine that there are other factors at work in addition to size, or lack there of.

jdkchem on September 30, 2009 at 9:22 PM

Sub-moronic. That’s like, moronic but more moronicer, or something.

It’s funny, Youtube is apparently keeping this video from coming up in any searches. None of the tags brings up the video, you can only search for it by using the poster’s username: PSAMOCKERY. LMFAO at Youtube!

You know, it’s interesting to note that celebrities are all UNION employees, so it stands to reason they’ll probably all be exempt in some way from the kind of coverage the rest of us serfs will have to endure, too. I doubt the sainted Obama will ask them to give up their cushy SAG plan.

Awesomely awesome indeed. Where in the heck did the Moveon ad get that bogus 80% number. Using that is such a huge whopper they should be fined! Oh but they are the elite they don’t even pay when they drug and rape a 13 year old.

Remember when you only listen to the Democrats and the media they own you only hear what they want you to hear.

Open your mind, look around, does it really make sense to you that the Republicans don’t have any plan? Common sense should tell you that is a lie.

So do some work and find out what the Republicans are trying to offer but are being silenced by the gestapo holding all the power in Washington.

Open your ears and your mind. You are being lied too.

80%, huh? And the far left arse-plucks another new and irrefutable “fact”.

There, fixed it.
The best health care plan is the free market. It works. (Which is one reason Hollywood’s receipts continue to tank.)

Democrats vote down provision to check illegals for ID

[From this article]

Senate Finance Committee Democrats rejected a proposed a requirement that immigrants prove their identity with photo identification when signing up for federal healthcare programs.

[My comments]
This isnt about providing uninsured americans free health insurance no not at all for the democrats
have already admitted as much no no folks..

This is about GIVING FREE HEALTH INSURANCE TO 20 MILLION illegal mexicans all to buy new democratic voters.

All so the democrats can then provide amnesty if they ALL VOTE DEMOCRAT for ever and ever.

This is a democrat plan to BYPASS the will of the american people.

This is a democrat plan to usurp the us constitution.
This is a democrat plan to betray the us voter.
This is a democrat plan to bankrupt our nation.

All because the democrats cannot obtain by legal permission
From the american people for their liberal policies.
So the democrats concocted this plan to completly BYPASS the LEGAL VOTING PUBLIC and destroy the effectivness of your LEGAL right to VOTE.

Hey if they can get 20 MILLION NEW SWORN OBAMA VOTERS
by making them instant citizens and bankrupting the treasury to do this..

This will nullify ALL LEGAL americans right to vote..

What good is your vote if the democrats will just PURCHASE another 20 million votes via fraudulent legislation.

I call on all americans to contact all of the senators and tell them right now.

To ALL THE HOUSE AND SENATE of the United States of America
Dear sir / madamm

If you VIOLATE my right to vote by registering any illegal aliens

If you Bankrupt my nation by giving illegal aliens free health care when we the people said no.

If you IGNORE the WILL of the american people.

If you disreguard the voting public when we said NO.

since you have to resort to hiding legislatin that the american people DO NOT WANT

since you are hiding the true cost of these bills to further your own parties sinister goals

Since you are doing all of these things.

YOU are NO longer our representative government.

YOU are now the ENEMIES of the people of the united states of america

It is the citizens of the United States of America
Verses the Congress and house of representatives
who were sworn to uphold the constitution
but instead have repeatedly violated it..

It is time to Throw them ALL OUT by Any means necessary..

veteranoutrage on October 1, 2009 at 4:07 PM

You’re right, they don’t have one… they have THIRTY bills proposed but the Dems kill them.

Here’s a hint marxlet, just because the Palace Guard Media tells you something doesn’t make it true. Especially in this day and age where we can get our message out without the scum bags at the NYT, you can’t BS people like this anymore.

Suck it.

Really enjoyed that, thanks for the link (video, real people making real sense).

That group should make more of these, or, rather, like this one, commenting on various other, ongoing issues that we hear from the Looney Left about, well, everything imaginable.

Lourdes on October 1, 2009 at 7:23 PM

As always conservatives dont have any original idea of their own. Never was there any funny joke, movie or ad made by an conservative. It would be almost funny if it wouldnt be so sad.

Found the 80% poll, NBC changed the wording so that people would support it:

From now on, when some Celebrity is being interviewed because the yellow snail may cause the end of the world, ask them about what they said about the Pulanski issue.

Let’s get a bead on your moral compass, Should Roman Pulanski be in Jail?

If the answer is NO, then we should disregard everything else they say.
