Dear Hollywood: It is not ‘cool’ nor ‘hip’ nor ‘edgy’ to be all Truth to Power-y when you ARE The Man ™ now

September 22, 2009

I attempted to watch this clip several times simply to discern *how* it was supposed to be funny. I had assumed that was the goal, as it is from a company called Funny or Die.   I quickly came to the realization that the video must have been based on the latter part of the company’s name and that it was in reference to the “performers” alleged careers.  It’s the only conclusion that makes sense, as you will soon see if you can stomach the drivel below:

It is particularly amusing coming from actors. A profession wherein the bottom earners scrape by waiting tables or worse … having to hit up ACORN for  a loan and we all know what kind of “service” that entails…. while the top earners make obscene amounts of money churning out absolute crap year after year. Case in point: Will Ferrell himself.

Say, Will, *I*, as one of the “Folks” believe that *you* make too much money. Spot me some cash for a video camera and I can make a super cool video too about THAT Crisis ™. Only mine would actually be, you know, funny.

So sorry that real doctors (not just the kind that play them on tv … or at Obama Town Halls) and insurance company employees are so dastardly as to try to earn a decent living. In fact, it looks like President Obama is doing his best to soothe your righteous indignation. That whole “saving and creating” jobs thing isnt’ going so well. I’m pretty sure some insurance company workers have lost their jobs in the “Recovery Act” debacle. Does that ease your mind a bit?

Hey, if y’all are soooo distressed by this Health Care Crisis ™, how about this? I’d like to keep being cared for by real doctors and paying for normal check-ups *gasp* out of pocket.  You all continue pretending to be not only doctors, but now also insurance experts and policy makers. As such, I propose a windfall tax on all the top-tier Hollywood actors who make far too much of a profit — Come on, man, share your pie!  It’s evil not to share your earned income with others, right? Said tax can pay for health insurance for all. And free candy!

I am 100% certain that you will be in full support of this program. It is For The Children, and all.

P.S. The creepy Obama-Love videos have GOT to stop. I know it’s hard. You are confused. After years and years of petulantly childish and outright bratty behavior, it is hard to understand that YOU have to be grown-ups now that your guy is in charge. I know this is made harder by the fact that HE doesn’t seem to realize he is in charge either, but still. Grow up, please.

    45% of real doctors say they’ll quit if ObamaCare passes. But 100% of TV doctors with a free afternoon to be in a web video are all for it!

      Dammit! So is that! Now y’all are making me look bad in the comments 😀

      That totally makes me giggle madly, though. Hello? You hold ALL the power now. Yet, you still can’t manage to pass a thing. Morons!

    Oh sweet Jesus, they’re gonna do another We Are The World for health care aren’t they? It’s abour the only thing they haven’t done yet. Started with “I pledge.” And it’s kept getting more surreal.

    They have no idea what to do with the keys.

    Paid for by Hmm…Let’s see… is under mediamatters umbrella. Mediamatters is funded by George Soros. If GS wants it, it has to be bad!

    You mention George Soros to a lib and they act like you said nothing bad. That man wants to destroy the USA all so he can get richer.

    Well, this one is for the Libs. HALIBURTON! CHENEY! BOO!!!

    I’ve always been astonished that will ferrel even has a career.
    In a sea of talentless douches, he really stands out.
