Obama nominated for an Emmy -- yes, really
« on: July 10, 2014, 04:13:58 PM »
I am waiting for Crufts to nominate him for Best in Show now.

President Obama and HealthCare.gov are in the running for an Emmy this awards season.

Obama’s satirical interview with comedian Zach Galifianakis on the web series “Between Two Ferns” was nominated Thursday for an Emmy Award in the Outstanding Short-Format Live-Action Entertainment category.

The clip has been viewed online over 22 million times and is credited by some with boosting enrollment in the Affordable Care Act through the HealthCare.gov website.

In the Funny or Die bit, Obama and Galifianakis passive-aggressively trade insults, before Obama gets a chance to plug the health care site.

The interview starts with Galifianakis asking Obama if he was planning on pardoning another turkey for Thanksgiving in 2014. Obama says yes and then asks Galifianakis if it was depressing for him to see a turkey "taken out of circulation" that he "couldn't eat."

Well, it can't be for best portrayal of a president.  I know!  Its for best leading man in the destruction of America. :peeonobama:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
