Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood made Obamacare jokes at the Country Music Awards last night.
The focus of the pair’s one-liners and song parody was the disastrous roll-out for the law’s impossible to use web site.
Most of the country music stars in attendance were shown in hysterics, but Taylor Swift was looking around like she thought it was illegal to make fun of Obama and the place might be raided any minute. Maybe she got a look at Faith Hill and Keith Urban who appeared as if they wanted to put on jackboots and arrest Paisley and Underwood for crimes against Dear Leader.
This kind of thing shapes public opinion. The seal has been broken – Obama is mockable by the general public.
Strangely, I never felt like “shut up and sing” even once. Weird.
