President Obama Super Stupid

The RNC’s Latest Brainbuster

RNC chairman and women’s healthcare product Reince Priebus is only three or four years late with today’s pop culture reference.

Presumably, some sad aide or intern spent the afternoon coming up with “President ShamWoW” and Reince thought it was brilliant.

On the other hand, Reince and his sad intern may be on to something.

ShamWow is a product that is used to clean up messes and President Obama has done a pretty good job of cleaning up Republican messes.

    I particularly like the mice screaming, “show us your birth certificate!”

    It reminds me of this Onion story from after the 2008 election:

    Black Man Given Nation’s Worst Job

    WASHINGTON—African-American man Barack Obama, 47, was given the least-desirable job in the entire country Tuesday when he was elected president of the United States of America. In his new high-stress, low-reward position, Obama will be charged with such tasks as completely overhauling the nation’s broken-down economy, repairing the rumbling infrastructure, and generally having to please more than 300 million Americans and cater to their every whim on a daily basis. As part of his duties, the black man will have to spend four to eight years cleaning up the messes other people left behind….

    OMG! That cartoon is hilarious. Reince Priebus is a sniveling, whinny, asshole who is in over his head as RNC Chariman.

      And yet, after a devastating 2012 election, the one Charlie Pierce calls Republican National Chairman and obvious anagram Reince Priebus got reelected. Michael Steele, who oversaw the R wave election of 2010 got canned after that one success.

      Wonder why …?

    How apropos that comic is.

    Again, the point of the ACA is to provide affordable health coverage. For people who have spent years with no insurance, with no chance to get insurance, with inadequate insurance, or with medical bills that keep them in penury or threaten to, the ACA is a profoundly positive and stabilizing force in their lives. This applies to tens of millions of people. Somehow I doubt that the people who NEED affordable health insurance— especially the millions who will also receive subsidies or put on MEDICAID— think that these glitches make it not worth their while.
