So who knew that the "Tell a Friend - Get Covered" ObamaCare campaign held a six hour live streaming telethon, yesterday? I sure didn't.
In case you missed it, the event was advertised to “include stories, tips, helpful information and other details related to national health care options” with the goal of enticing young invincibles to buy health insurance.
Apparently one of the highlights of the six hour show was a dance-off between Richard Simmons and contortionist Nathan Barnatt, and featuring Hannah Hart, the star of an internet show about drunk cooking.
Via Red Alert Politics:
“What’s he doing?” Simmons exclaimed as Barnatt began to shake his body wildly.
“He’s extending his livelihood! That’s what he’s doing!” Hannah Hart, your host and creator of My Drunk Kitchen, responded in an endorsement of cardio.
I'm guessing this part of the show comes under the heading of "other details."
I don't know if the reaction to that was supposed to be hysterical laughter, or an impressed "wowwwww" - it's way too meta for me - but in my case, it was hysterical laughter.The entire broadcast can be seen at Red Alert Politics.
