Green Room

Revealed: ‘Pajama boy’ is an OFA employee who attended UW-Madison

Of course he is. The Washington Examiner’s Charlie Spiering lands, er, “the scoop:”

It looks like he hurriedly deleted his Twitter account, too.  You embarrassed, bro?   Mr. Krupp appears to have graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Madison just last winter, suggesting that he may be eligible to remain on his parents’ healthcare plan for several more years under Obamacare.  Why would such a “child” need to have “the talk” with his parents?  Meanwhile, lefty Adam Serwer is terribly upset over conservative “gender enforcers” mocking Pajama Boy for being gay, or something:

How could the sight of an earnest twenty something in pajamas drive so many dashing specimens of unassailable masculinity to complete panic? … The conservative intelligentsia’s collective response to an ad trying to get Americans to purchase health insurance is to suggest that the model in the ad looks gay.

Who’s panicking?  And no, our collective response was to ridicule his smugness and man-child-sized onesie, and also to mock the OFA brain trust for deciding this ad would effectively help persuade legions of young, healthy people to overpay for a product — a phenomenon upon which liberals are relying to salvage the their historically-embarrassing Big Government misadventure.  But hurling accusations of gay baiting is certainly much easier, and probably more cathartic.

Exit quotation (Allahpundit™): “Modeling is exhausting.”

Yer welcome – just sounded like it should be a de-motivational poster!

Are people calling him a gay stereotype? I thought the gay stereotype involved having style….

– Ed

Ed, to be fair, was he about to start getting happy little notes from lots of kindhearted conservatives?
If he was your kid, what would you advise?

Panic? The only chance of panic is laughing so hard we can’t breathe! This is worse than the Julia commercials.

Not to dress like child, and especially not to have any pictures taken of him dressed as a child, and really especially not to show such picture to the world.

shouldn’t the ™ be on “exit quotation” not AP’s nickname? Isn’t it the exit quotation element what you’re attributing ownership of?

I have no idea, but I really want to know – how do you pronounce your name, PEA-can pie, or puh-CAHN pie?

I bet mom and dad are proud of his accomplishments and his decision to shill for this crapola law.

jaywemm on December 20, 2013 at 9:13 PM

There is a good chance he still is a virgin and will never breed.

That’s one thing to hope for, anyway…

Though I feel sorry for his parents…no grandchildren from “pajama boy.”

Even Target panicked and won’t sell the onsie now.

He would have been better off with this one:

Not directed at me. However I would advise him to always be truthful and stand by his comments or not make them in the first place. Just be true to himself and be responsible for his words and actions.

NbyNW on December 20, 2013 at 4:37 PM

Having been rasied on the Gulf Coast, allow me to clarify: the proper pronunciation of “pecan” is puh-CAHN.

PEA-cans are on ships.

Alec Baldwin was unavailable for comment.

Ovaltine.

Like that Duck Dynasty family?

Comically, we can mention the Duck Dynasty family again.

You are kidding right?

His parents have been this special snowflake’s enablers.

roy_batty on December 22, 2013 at 10:47 AM

Classic example of the “self-esteem movement” gone wrong.

Self-censorship is a lost art. (At least among some.)
