Now even cartoons are making fun of Obamacare
« on: November 01, 2013, 07:29:29 AM »

This should really push Obama's nasty button and make him say some rather teleprompter un-filtered comments.  He can't stand to be made fun of or anything he supports to be mocked and this should be an absolute atomic bomb for his narcissistic personality. :Obounce: :peeonobama: :bigsilly: :mauslaff:

This Just In: Now Even Cartoons Are Making Fun of Obamacare
Cortney O'Brien | Oct 31, 2013

The creators at South Park thrive on mocking current events in both politics and pop culture. Obamacare, the president’s “proud” accomplishment in health care reform, was no exception. Following HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’s failure of a testimony yesterday on the shortcomings of, the cartoon comedy show mercilessly lampooned Obamacare's rollout process.

In the new episode, entitled Taming Strange, one character, Kyle, is worried about the strange behavior of his little brother, Ike. Because of his symptoms, one character jokes he is going through "Canadian Puberty," referencing the Canadian health care system.

Breitbart provides more details:

At the boys' school, counselor Mr. Mackey is having his own troubles using the building's new "Intellilink" system, a program meant to streamline all the students' mental health needs. Click a button to schedule an appointment and the school lights shut off. Visit the program's menu for a child's health status and cheesy '80s music is piped into the building.

It's ObamaCare's web site all over again. The episode even includes a hapless Kathleen Sebelius character who is summarily fired for incompetence.

It’s one thing when late-night talk show hosts and even Saturday Night Live is taking potshots at the president’s sweeping legislation, but a cartoon? Granted, it’s an adult cartoon. But the point is no less significant.

Animated or not animated, Obamacare is becoming a running punchline.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
