Video: We’re in debt? Washington Honey Badgers don’t care

posted at 6:50 pm on August 5, 2011 by Tina Korbe

This just made my day. My friend Katie Pavlich posted this video to the Townhall.com Tipsheet yesterday and it’s worth cross-posting here. From Bankrupting America, a parody of the original “honey badger don’t care” video, which currently has more than 13 million views on YouTube (If you haven’t seen the original, watch it first, but be warned that it includes profanity):

My favorite part, original narrator Randall’s classic intonation on the ad’s characterization of the debt ceiling deal: “What? They all agreed on a plan? Whose plan is it? Wait — no one likes it, but it’s still gonna stick around? What IS this? Thank God we’re all done now. What? We’re not? Big spending appropriations season is just around the corner? So, you’re telling me, we still have to cut MORE spending?”

Yep. That’s exactly what the Tea Party is telling those Washington honey badgers.

What did I do now? My bride was just fussing at me about something or other here…now you jump on me in cyberspace…I can’t win.

kingsjester on August 5, 2011 at 7:19 PM

I love Randall, but I think he has his metaphors mixed up. I think Washington is the cobra (or maybe just the larvae), and the American people are the honey badger. Honey badger don’t give a shit, he’s going to hunt you down and eat you.

RebeccaH on August 5, 2011 at 7:20 PM

Nooooooooo, kj…That was meant for our long lost buddy. I included your comment for context, or that’s what I thought I was doing…

You should be happy, you got rain and a 20 degree reduction in temperature today…

ladyingray on August 5, 2011 at 7:23 PM

Progressives God is the GOVERNMENT!!

They might show up in the pew, but if they are an activist their passion is growing Government and power so that they can “progress” our planet.

Once you realize it’s their everything then you understand how they can lie, cheat or steal to further the cause.

Like the Queen / witch Jadis and Uncle Andrew in “The Magicians Nephew”. Because they were of a higher class they were immune to the rules for the slaves or the serfs.

Seven Percent Solution:SPS,everything is A-Okay,but,
the problem is,in Canada,either
Bell or Shaw cable internet,you have
a monthly internet bill,and the more
you use,or the more you download,they
charge you more,like water or electri
city,

so,my internet net bill,for less than
6 months,is nearly $1,000.00 bucks!

I signed a online petition,to fight
this,and no joke,the next day,I lost
my service!

Anywho *sigh*,I’ll be AWOL,for anothe
r month!——————-:)

Washington honey badgers

Umm, no. The honey badger is a clean and decent animal by comparison. Very unfair to the guts and determination and straightforwardness of the honey badger.

AshleyTKing on August 6, 2011 at 12:05 AM

What’s needed is a Tea Party version of this:

“Tea Party people don’t give a $h!+. Smack the $h!+ out of those Washington fat cats!”

“OOOh!! Look at those K Street lobbyists pushing for their pet pork projects. That’s just disgusting.”

Pablo Snooze on August 6, 2011 at 10:31 AM

Seems the “terrorists” in the Tea Party were the only sane people in the room. It is mani that a piece of human scum like John Kerry would ask the mainstream media to censor the only people (Tea Party) who know how to stop this insanity on the eve the insanity came true. Liberalism is a mental disorder and it is being reinforced every minute.
