Country Stars Mock Obamacare — Cries of Racism Ensue

They should have seen it coming. Whenever anyone attempts to mock liberalism, the vast unwashed masses are quick to respond. Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley may not have realized that. Sure, in recent days everyone has been making fun of the Obamacare disaster – from Saturday Night Live to Jon Stewart to the folks on the nightly news. However, none of those mockers sing country music. And if you sing country music, you must be from the south, and if you’re from the south, then you must be a Republican, and if you’re a Republican, then you must be a racist. Don’t you get it Carrie and Brad? It’s simple math.

Well, why don’t I let you decide for yourself? Are these two wonderful country music stars making fun of President Obama, or of the unmitigated disaster that the Obamacare rollout has been?

What? You didn’t hear any racist undertones? You didn’t feel the fiery flames of hatred pouring out of that telecast? You didn’t see the racist way those two rich, white people were moving?

That’s because racism wasn’t a factor. Not even one iota.

Sadly, that didn’t keep the rabid, foaming at the mouth liberal hatemongers from spreading their uneducated and slanderous lies. (Warning some of the language ahead is a bit… salty.)

Sadly, it seems that many of the folks judging the CMA’s for making light of the problems that Obamacare is having didn’t actually watch the telecast. There were no attacks on the President, just simple fun being poked at the mess associated with Obamacare.

It’s almost as if these people missed the all of the awards shows that took place while President George W. Bush was in office. Those shows were almost constant attacks on the Bush administration for anything from gay rights, to the war in Iraq, to the war on poverty, illegal immigration or gun rights. During the Bush years the awards shows seemed more like roasts of the Bush Presidency. One joke that lasts two minutes about the Obama administration should be no big deal… unless you’re a thin-skinned liberal. Don’t believe me? How about just the opening monologue from the 2005 Oscars?

Yeah, makes the hubbub about the CMA skit seem a little bit… extreme? Folks, Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood seem like “salt of the earth” type folks. They’re not in the limelight all of the time, they don’t say crazy stuff to get attention, and they do a lot of good work with their free time. Hopefully, the liberal media will find something else to be disgusted about soon because these two don’t deserve the negative attention they’re getting for this really funny and innocent joke.

Fortunately, not everyone in the media is as infuriated… check out the response to the CMA skit by this local news crew.

Thanks for the even handed and cool headed approach, guys. We need more of that.
