Oh, you know it won't be on me
"Hey, do you have that Obamacare?"
Carrie Underwood turned a few heads when she asked co-host Brad Paisley that question at the CMA awards last week. The duo then fired up a laptop and sang "Obamacare by Morning" while they waited for healthcare.gov to load.
Camera shots into the crowd showed some surprised faces and a few not-too-happy.
As the duo delivered their final and clinching lines, "Obamacare by morning. Over SIX people served," my dominant thought was wow...newfound respect for C&W.
This type of thing enrages liberals and almost certainly has them scurrying to dig up dirt on Underwood et al. Why? Because the reflexive response of statists to criticism about Big Government programs is to disparage the critics. Rather than debating the substance of competing ideas, this group aims to make it personal.
Therefore, were I Carrie Underwood, I'd be bracing for some retaliation.
Meanwhile, she can count at least one new fan.
