News, but not the serious kind
Good luck will rub off when I shake ‘ands with you…
Blog Guy, it looks to me like those Government Death Panels you write about still aren’t popular. Is President Obama doing anything to help sell them as part of his health care reform?
Sure. I guess you haven’t seen his promotional video based on the classic kids’ movie, “Mary Poppins.”
It features an updated version of the film’s iconic umbrella scene, remade with Barack and Michelle taking off and floating over Washington, DC.
Amazing! Do the Obamas actually sing?
Do they ever! They’ve done a great job on the movie’s beloved song, “A Spoonful of Sugar Helps the Medicine go Down.”
Plus, it’s uncanny how appropriate the actual lyrics are in selling the Death Panel concept:
“In every job that must be done,
There is an element of fun,
“You find the fun and SNAP!
The job’s a game…”
Yeah, just a very quick-cut to a masked Death Panel guy breaking some sick dude’s neck, and then right back to the Obamas, floating over the Potomac River.
Jeez, I don’t know, Blog Guy. Is this video going to give my children nightmares?
Only if Julie Andrews comes knocking on your door very late on a dark night…
